Download Postman
A Postman Collection is an
Executable API Description
Organize requests into folders.
Document the collection with descriptions, tests, and more.
Send requests individually, or use collection runner to send all the requests in the collection.
Examine responses and view results.
Postman Collections are the Core of the Postman ADE.
Every tool within Postman is launched from the Postman Collection format:
Publishing an API collection can be done via a Run In Postman button, embedded within the publisher’s site, and downloading a Postman Collection directly into the developer’s Postman instance.
API Monitoring is a scheduled service to run a Postman Collection, reporting results based on tests embedded in the collection, and reported in the user’s Postman dashboard.
API Documentation publishes a shareable, customized view of the API’s Postman Collection - helping developers onboard quickly to an API.
Developers can create a Mock Server from a collection, allowing API users to view example request & response pairs, even before the API is complete.
Developers can Debug APIs by creating requests, adding tests, and examining responses.
Automated Testing is completed by using the Postman Collection Runner to execute a complete collection, with multiple requests and tests. Postman’s Newman can access Postman Collections via the command line to integrate with CI/CD tools.
