Managing Workspaces

You can manage workspaces and the Postman elements associated with a workspace, like collections, environments, mocks, monitors, and more. You can perform such tasks as editing names and descriptions, viewing details, or creating elements for workspaces.

Collections

Add an existing collection to this workspace or create a new collection. You can share a collection to multiple workspaces.

Environments

Add an existing environment to this workspace or create a new environment. You can share an environment to multiple workspaces.

Monitors

Create a monitor to track the performance of your APIs in a workspace. A monitor created within a workspace cannot be shared to other workspaces. If you want to create a monitor with a collection that is shared in multiple workspaces, a new monitor must be created in each of the other workspaces.

Mocks

Create a mock server to simulate a server response. A mock created within a workspace cannot be shared to other workspaces. If you want to create a mock with a collection that is shared in multiple workspaces, a new mock must be created in each of the other workspaces.

Integrations

View a list of current integrations or create a new one. Postman has third party integrations available to help you integrate with your existing workflow and tools. Integrations created within a workspace cannot be shared to other workspaces. If you want to create an integration with a collection that is shared in multiple workspaces, a new integration must be created in each of the other workspaces.
