What is automated testing?
Tests are automated by creating test suites that can run again and again. Postman can be used to automate many types of tests including unit tests, functional tests, integration tests, end-to-end tests, regression tests, mock tests, etc. Automated testing prevents human error and streamlines testing.
Why automate your API tests?
Streamline development and QA with a CI/CD pipeline
Testing APIs can be hard. Automating testing with your CI/CD Pipeline is easy. Postman allows you to reuse your test suites to create a CI/CD pipeline so you can test at every push. You can seamlessly integrate your Postman instance with Jenkins to create your own CI/CD pipeline or add it to your existing pipeline as a build step.
Make scaling easy with automated testing
As programs grow, so does the risk of breakage. You can create more robust and bug-resistant programs by increasing test coverage and frequency. Postman and Newman, our command line tool, allow you to easily set up your own automated tests.
Sometimes less is more
Shifting to automated API tests means you'll spend less money on QA, experience less lag time between development and QA, and spend less time debugging in production.
Postman simplifies automated testing
Postman offers a comprehensive API testing tool that makes it easy to set up automated tests. You can aggregate the tests and requests you've created into a single automated test sequence. Run and manage your test workflow from the Postman app, Postman monitoring, or from the command line with Newman, Postman's command line tool.
Create test suites
Organizing your requests into Postman Collections enables you to run and automate a series of requests.
Share with collaborators
Postman Workspaces automatically share your collaborative projects with your teammates. Easily maintain one source of truth, comment on documentation, and notify your teammates.

Writing tests in Postman
This video will teach you how to set up tests in Postman and provide real-world examples to show you how Postman tests work.
Test examples in Postman
For a lot of people, Postman is synonymous with API testing. This public workspace contains examples of Postman tests.
Learn how automated testing helps close the gap between development and QA, find bugs earlier on, and create scalable, more robust services.
