Join us for a one-hour, introductory Postman learning session geared specifically for testers.

Learn how to test the functionality and reliability of an API.

We’ll cover these topics:

  • Send a request and inspect a response
  • Use a test snippet
  • Write custom tests
  • Extract data from one request to use in another with variables
  • Save and run tests as collections
  • Explain different types of tests that can be written in Postman


  • Create a Postman account, and then sign in.
  • Download and install the Postman desktop agent, which will enable you to use the web version of Postman that we use in Postman Intergalactic sessions.
  • (optional) Prior knowledge of JavaScript or another programming language is helpful, but not required.
