Integrate automated testing into your CI/CD pipeline to ensure that any code changes won't break the API in production.
Use the schema as a single source of truth to write tests against your API
Use the API specification format of your choice in Postman. Write, edit, or import schema formats including RAML, WADL, OpenAPI, and GraphQL. Then generate collections directly from the schema.
Track and communicate changes to the API design by editing and versioning schemas in one central location. No more having to switch between tools.
Rely on your schema as a source of truth for API design and development and ensure all teams are working toward the same goal.
Write test suites so that teams can debug together
Avoid running the same test by testing multiple instances of the same request with parameterization. Insert variables in any part of the request and Postman will replace them with values from a data file or environment variable.
Use the collection runner in the Postman app to test a collection and view the results in real time. Or use Newman to view test results in the terminal. For any issues, debug in Postman's Console Log. Built specifically for API development, it records the raw request and response, certificates, and error logs from scripts.
Add a test suite as a build step to ensure your APIs are compatible.
Reuse your test suites to create a CI/CD pipeline that tests at every push. You can seamlessly integrate your Postman instance with Jenkins to create your own pipeline or add it to your existing pipeline as a build step.
Create more robust and bug-resistant programs by increasing test coverage and frequency. Postman and Newman, our command line tool, allow you to easily set up your own automated tests.
Aggregate your tests into a single automated test sequence. Run and manage your test workflow from
Download the Postman app and send your first request within minutes. Postman is free to download and use for teams of any size.
Make any kind of API call—REST, SOAP, or just plain HTTP—and easily inspect even the largest responses. Postman also has built-in support for popular data formats, including OpenAPI, GraphQL, and RAML.
