Reliable and allows you to create and share collections with team members

Pros and Cons

  • "What is most valuable for me is that we can create and share collections between the team members."
  • "An area that needs some improvement would be to allow multiple windows with different collections to be open at the same time."

What is our primary use case?

We are using Postman for our testing and checking our API response and validations.

What is most valuable?

What is most valuable for me is that we can create and share collections between the team members.

What needs improvement?

An area that needs some improvement would be to allow multiple windows with different collections to be open at the same time. 

It only allows you to open one with the same collection. 

If we open a new Postman window, it does not allow me to have the same collection as I had in the previous window. Allowing us to have replicas of the same collection open independently would be helpful.

I would like to see if it can incorporate Jenkins integrations.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Postman for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. It's running well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is not for load testing. 

You cannot scale vertically. You can only scale horizontally.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't contacted technical support, but they do have good documentation available online.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the free version that is available.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good tool overall and quite stable.

It is mainly used for testing purposes, API responses, and validations.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Good for anything API-related and has a good interface

Pros and Cons

  • "The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution."
  • "The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan."

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case is for API testing. 

What is most valuable?

The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution.

What needs improvement?

The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Postman for over a year. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. I don't use it quite extensively but for what I use it for it's quite stable.

At my current company there are around 2,000 users. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't used technical support. The documentation is quite good. I use the Postman website and forums. 

How was the initial setup?

The deployment depends on what you are going to use it for. It can be simple and it can be complex at the same time.

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to anything API related, I would recommend this solution. For anything API-related, it's perfect. REST API is the way to go and I would recommend Postman for it. 

I would rate it an eight out of ten.

The pricing is the only improvement. Its competitors are quite pricey. But it would be nice if there were more options like annual, monthly or enterprise-level.

Easy to manage with very good scalability

I've been using this solution for three years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No problems with stability.
