You can use the Postman Pro to APIMATIC Integration to back up your Postman Collections in Swagger, RAML, API Blueprint, and other API description formats.

This integration allows APIMATIC to convert your Postman Collections into any major API description format, and save the resulting file into your designated GitHub repository.

If you don’t already have a GitHub account, you’ll need to create one.

Configuring APIMATIC Integration

  1. In the Integrations page, find APIMATIC in the list of Postman’s 3rd party Integrations for Postman Pro users.

  1. Click the View Details button to see information about APIMATIC and how the Postman to APIMATIC integration converts, formats, and saves your Postman collections to Github.

  1. To back up a collection periodically to a Github repository:
  • Select a collection.
  • Select a repository.
  • Specify a directory in the repository where you want to add the collection.
