What is Postman?

Postman is a collaboration platform for API development. Postman's features simplify each step of building an API and streamline collaboration so you can create better APIs—faster.

Automated Testing

Automate manual tests and integrate them into your CI/CD pipeline to ensure that any code changes won't break the API in production.


Design & Mock

Communicate the expected behavior of an API by simulating endpoints and their responses without having to set up a backend server.


Documentation

Generate and publish beautiful, machine-readable documentation to make your API easier to consume.
