Postman

Postman allows you to share a collection of requests. TestMace supports import this format. You can import Postman collections in these two ways:

  • import from the project context menu: Import -> Postman;

  • import from the Folder or Project nodes context menu: Import -> Postman.

You'll see the next dialog:

Let’s look at this dialog in detail. You can specify 3 import parameters

  • Path to collection file: a path to the file with an exported Postman collection. Only this field is required foe import. See the collection export instruction in the Postman documentation

  • Path to environment file: a path to the file with an exported environment. See the environment export instruction in the Postman documentation

  • Path to globals file: a path to the file with exported Postman global variables. See the global variables export instruction in the Postman documentation

While importing from Postman you may need only a collection, but we highly recommend you specify the paths to the files with environment and global variables. There are a couple of reasons for that:

  • Better variables resolving. If you import a collection only, all variables belong to the collection, even if they are not defined in the collection’s variables list

  • A new environment will be added to you project if you specify a path to the file with the environment

If the root node name you specified already exists in the tree, the name will be changed to NodeName [Copy [number]].
