Inviting and managing

  • Pro

Postman’s web dashboard provides a number of ways to manage your team.

Member roles

Everyone in your team is a member. Each member has certain roles, which let them perform sets of actions.

Postman supports 3 member roles:

Roles in Postman Permitted actions
Admin Send out team invites
Update team member roles
Remove users from the team
Billing View payments
Retry failed payments
View invoices
Update card details
Change billing email
Cancel and update the team’s plan
User Use Postman Pro
Collaborate on collections
Publish documentation
Set up monitors for collections
Use the Postman Pro API

Teams are only charged for user roles. If you team size is 10, you can have up to 10 members with the user role. Any of these 10 members can have admin or billing roles as well. Each team can have up to 2 support accounts (only have admin or billing rights, and are not paid for).

By default, members who set up the team for themselves will be granted all three roles. If you’re purchasing Postman Pro for someone else, you’ll receive an invite to join the team with a billing role.

Managing roles

Anyone with the admin role can modify roles of other members. Head to the teams page, click the Settings icon, and select “Manage permissions”.

You’ll be able to add or remove roles for any member by clicking on the role for that member.

Keep in mind a few restrictions:

  1. Each team can have up to 2 support accounts (only have admin or billing rights, and are not paid for)
  2. Each member must have at least one role
  3. You cannot assign the user role to more members than your team has paid for

Invites

An invite is an invitation that you send to new people to add them to a team. These can only be managed by members with the admin role.

From the Postman app: To invite people to join the team with a user role, click on “Invite Users” from the Team Library tab. You can also invite users when setting up the team library.

For the user role: To invite people to join the team with a user role, head to the teams page, and click on “Invite Users”. Enter the email addresses of those you wish to invite, and hit “Send Invite(s)”.

These invites will be visible at the bottom of the member listing. If you don’t have any paid slots left, you’ll need to click “Add Users” and increase the team size before sending invites.

For admin or billing roles: To invite people to join the team with an admin or billing role, head to the teams page, click the Settings icon, and select “Add Support Account”. Enter the recipient’s email address, choose which roles to assign, and hit “Send Invite(s)”. These invites will be visible at the bottom of the member listing.

Canceling Invites: If you’d like to revoke an invite you’ve already sent, hit the “X” link next to each invite in the listing on the teams page. You can see how many available invites remain in the count displayed on the “Invite Users” button. The available invites will increase by 1 for every canceled invite for the user role.

Changing team size

For billing members: If you’re out of paid slots and need to invite more users, you’ll need to click “Add Users” on the teams page. You’ll need to have a saved card to add users. Annual teams will be billed a pro-rated amount for the number of days left in the billing cycle.
