Working with Postman

With APImetrics you can import direct from Postman OR run Postman collections through our agent network and use us to generate data.

To start working with Postman, you will need to generate a Postman API Key - this can be hard to find inside Postman and they have some tricky rules in place around how you can copy and use it. This functionality is subject to change and we will work our hardest to keep on top of the Postman UI.

Once a key is generated, you need to link Postman with your APImetrics project - this is achieved in the Import API menu in the left hand navigation.

Generating a Postman API Key

To generate your Postman API key you will need to find the 'settings' menu under the dropdown from your user name in the top right of the UX.

APImetrics CANNOT import the encrypted API key

The API keys are stored in Postman in an encrypted format. If you want to reuse an API key you will need to click on the 3 dots and select 'regenerate key' then COPY that for use.

You cannot import a Postman Collection you have not saved

This will result in an import error.
