FAQ

Does Postman support syncing from other repositories in addition to GitHub, like GitLab and Bitbucket?

Currently, Postman only supports syncing API schemas from GitHub. We are working on integrating GitLab and Bitbucket—both public and on-premise.

Can I customize my API documentation URL?

Yes. You can use a custom domain and have the documentation published there. As an example, see how Imgur did it here: https://apidocs.imgur.com/?version=latest.

Does Postman have capabilities to create complex tests with multiple dependent requests?

Yes. You can utilize pre-request scripts and setNextRequest method to build complex test flows. Learn more about using setNextRequest here: https://learning.postman.com/docs/postman/scripts/branching-and-looping/.

How do I manage OAuth 2.0 authentication with Postman?

In the Postman app, click on the Authorization tab, then select OAuth 2.0 from the Type dropdown list. Read more here: https://learning.postman.com/docs/postman/sending-api-requests/authorization/#oauth-20

Can I share my docs with people outside of my team?

Yes. You can publish your API documentation to make it available for public viewing by anyone who has the link. You can also publish your docs to a public or private API network to make them more discoverable.
