Importing Postman Collections

Importing a Collection

import_collection

The first and most critical step in importing Postman Collections is importing the collection itself.

  • First, open the HTTP Client via the Tools menu.
  • Click the gray Import button at the top of the client.
  • Select your collection in the popup window.
  • Click Open.
  • The routes from your collection are now available in the list of saved requests.

Importing Postman Environments

import_env

Importing an environment is just as simple as importing the collection itself.

  • First, inside of a test, click on the Data Sets button on the left pane.
  • Click the orange Postman button.
  • Select your environments file from the popup.
  • Your environmental variables will now be available in the Data Sets pane.

Importing Postman Global Variables

import_globals

The process for importing global variables from Postman is nearly identical to the process for importing environmental variables. The primary difference is where the import itself is executed.

  • First access the Vault via the Tools menu at the top of any view.
  • Select the project that you want to access the variables through, or select the Global Vault if you want all of your projects to have access to the variable definitions.
  • Click the Variables button in the specific Vault that was chosen.
  • Click the Import Variables from Postman button.
  • Select your global variables file and click the Open button.
  • Your global variable definitions can now be accessed from the connected project(s).
