Import an API and send requests
Postman makes it easy to work with APIs and perform exploratory testing.
Get up and running in seconds
Instead of creating calls manually to send over the command line, all you need is a Postman Collection. Import a collection directly or generate one in seconds from
- An API schema in the RAML, WADL, OpenAPI, or GraphQL format
- A data file containing the cURL commands
Parameterize your requests
Use our built-in library of dynamic variables to generate dynamic dummy data for testing multiple iterations of the same request with different values.
Inspect responses of any size
View the status code, response time, and response size. Postman's automatic language detection, link and syntax highlighting, search, and text formatting options make it easy to inspect the response body.
Exploratory testing made easy
Use the Postman Sandbox to write tests that you can share with teammates.
Use scripts to send asynchronous requests
Use pre-request scripts to execute logic in the background when sending multiple requests. Instead of waiting for a call to complete and blocking further requests, designate a callback function and you'll be notified when it's done.
Chain requests to create test scenarios
Chain requests to create test suites by using pre-request and test scripts to parse information from the response body and save it as a variable used in additional requests.
Easily share your findings
Document your discoveries in a collection and communicate them to developers by sharing the collection to a team workspace.
What is Postman?
Postman is an API platform for building and using APIs. Postman simplifies each step of the API lifecycle and streamlines collaboration so you can create better APIs—faster.
A comprehensive set of tools that help accelerate the API Lifecycle—from design, testing, documentation, and mocking to discovery.
Easily store, iterate and collaborate around all your API artifacts on one central platform used across teams.
Organize your API work and collaborate with teammates across your organization or stakeholders across the world.
Improve the quality of APIs with governance rules that ensure APIs are designed, built, tested, and distributed meeting organizational standards.
