Automate Your API Tests with Postman
Validate Your Schema
Broad Schema Support
Use the API specification format of your choice in Postman. Write, edit, or import schema formats including RAML, WADL, OpenAPI, and GraphQL. Then generate collections directly from the schema.
Edit and Version Schema
Track and communicate changes to the API design by editing and versioning schemas in one central location. No more having to switch between tools.
Maintain a Single Source of Truth
Rely on your schema as a source of truth for API design and development and ensure all teams are working toward the same goal.
Write Test Suites
Create test suites
Avoid running the same test by testing multiple instances of the same request with parameterization. Insert variables in any part of the request and Postman will replace them with values from a data file or environment variable.
Run the tests and debug
Use the collection runner in the Postman app to test a collection and view the results in real time. Or use Newman to view test results in the terminal. For any issues, debug in Postman's Console Log. Built specifically for API development, it records the raw request and response, certificates, and error logs from scripts.
Integrate Testing into Your CI/CD Pipeline
Streamline Development and Testing with a CI/CD Pipeline
Reuse your test suites to create a CI/CD pipeline that tests at every push. You can seamlessly integrate your Postman instance with Jenkins to create your own pipeline or add it to your existing pipeline as a build step.
Postman Scales Up With You
Create more robust and bug-resistant programs by increasing test coverage and frequency. Postman and Newman, our command line tool, allow you to easily set up your own automated tests.
Easily Manage Your Testing Sequences

Research Cryptocurrency Data Using Asynchronous Operations
Every day, developers encounter situations where we want to perform network calls, I/O calls, and other calls that are generally asynchronous in nature. This is because synchronous operation tasks always execute one after the other, which takes time and blocks the code execution until they’re resolved, whereas asynchronous operations can be executed without blocking the…

Postman Named a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management
We are excited to share that Gartner has just named Postman a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management, citing both Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. The announcement comes right on the heels of Postman v9, providing us with a cornerstone to buttress the Postman API Platform vision…
Integrating with Postman
Postman provides an API development toolchain aimed at integrating with your workflow. The Postman team develops an open ecosystem in conjunction with industry partners to build integrations that facilitate your API projects. Integrations allow you to automate sharing data and functionality between Postman and other tools you might use for your API development.
The maximum number of integrations you can use is determined by your Postman plan. Learn more about what's included with each plan.
You can access integrations by navigating to Browse Integrations from your Home page and selecting "Integrations" from the menu on the left. Search and select the integration you wish to add to your workspace.
Each integration's page explains how to use the integration and what it could do. If available, you can select View or View All to view previously configured integrations for the selected integration.
Select Add Integration to configure your integration. Enter the required information for account and access authorization. Select your workspace to add the integration to and complete the setup process.
Static IP support
You can use static IP addresses to enable integrations and custom webhooks for Postman Collection backups that need to access hosted (private) networks behind firewalls that require whitelisted IP addresses.
Contact your IT team to whitelist the following static IP in your firewall to enable collection backup integrations and webhooks:
Once you whitelist this IP address, calls for the integrations and webhooks will be able to connect to your network and allow the integrations and webhooks to work as expected.
DNS records should use the public IP address for instances which are behind a firewall or not accessible via the internet.
Postman supports implementing static IP addresses for the following integrations and webhooks:
Postman integrates with some of the most widely-used Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tools. After you set up CI integration for your API, you can view the status of builds or kick off a new build, all from within Postman. You can also run API tests created in Postman as part of your CI pipeline.
To learn more about how CI integrations work, and for detailed configuration steps, see CI integrations.
Set up integrations to receive alerts
Postman Monitors enable you to set up recurring runs of your Postman Collections at scheduled intervals. But sometimes, you may have a use case where you need to run a monitor at a particular time. That's where the monitoring webhooks come in. Monitoring webhooks are a way to trigger a collection at a specific time with your own custom payload which can then be accessed in the collection. In this way, your collections can run independently of any environment and can solely rely on the incoming data in the request.
So how do they work? Webhooks will POST data to a URL when certain events are triggered. That data will then be accessible inside your collection in the globals object. You can then parse that data and use it in any way possible. Essentially, webhooks are the same as monitors but without a schedule. So, you can debug your webhooks in the same way as you debug a monitor.
Currently, webhooks on a particular collection can only be created using the Postman API. In order to create a webhook, you can refer to the Postman API.
Accessing the request body in scripts
The request body of the webhook is available inside the object. In order to use it, first parse the object. The data sent to the webhook is available in the parameter inside the parsed object.
The following snippet shows the same:
Note: only JSON data is currently supported as the request body in the webhook.
Sending output to another API
The data that is sent to the webhook can be used to trigger another API and define a logic based on the incoming data. For example, you could set up a monitoring webhook on your GitHub repository, so that based on the updates happening in your repository, you can trigger custom build pipelines and perform CI tests.
