Setting up a monitor

  • Pro

Sign in to the Postman web view, and head over to the monitors page. Click the Add Monitor button.

add monitor

Enter a name for this monitor (e.g. User APIs on production). Choose the collection that you want to monitor and a corresponding environment.

Note: If you choose a shared collection, your team can see the monitor. However, if you create a monitor on a unshared collection, the monitor will be private and only visible to you.

Add an appropriate schedule for the monitor. For example, you can run a monitor every 5 minutes or every Monday at 9:00 AM.
