New Postman Pro Provides Complete API Toolchain
December 14, 2016

Postman announced a major update to its developer product, Postman Pro.

In limited release since early this year as Postman Cloud, the product has been rechristened Postman Pro to reflect its more extensive features, numerous integrations and broad appeal. Early Postman Cloud users number among the largest and most innovative companies in the world, including such names as Adobe, VMware and DocuSign.

With today’s product release, developers can leverage the power of Postman at every stage of their API workflow, from development and testing, through collaboration, documentation & publishing, to API monitoring. Postman began as a simple tool to make API testing faster and easier, and has expanded into a powerful, collaborative and user-friendly toolchain, allowing Postman customers to streamline and simplify every aspect of API development.

“My research has consistently identified the value of a unified toolset spanning pre-production, deployment and production monitoring lifecycle stages in breaking down silos between API development, API publishing and production monitoring,” said Julie Craig, of Enterprise Management Associates. “This, in turn, supports more efficient API delivery, supporting both internal and external customers.”

Postman’s free, downloadable app is a popular tool for API development & testing, and is used by more than 3 million developers worldwide. Postman Pro extends the Postman toolchain through the entire workflow, with functionality for collaboration, documentation & publishing and even monitoring.

“Postman Pro is unique among API tools in providing this breadth of features,” commented Abhinav Asthana, CEO and co-founder of Postman. “Technical teams can now leverage Postman at every stage of development, streamlining their workflow and making API development faster, easier and painless.”

Key features of Postman Pro include:

Collaboration:
- Share collections and environment within a common team library
- Access the most updated version of team assets automatically
- Examine changes and updates, tracked line by line
Documentation & Publishing:
- Extensive, easy-to-consume documentation format, including requests, collection descriptions and code snippets
- Viewable via web page, either internally or published publicly
Monitoring:
- Flexible monitoring of API request collections, to test for uptime, responsiveness, and correctness
- Dashboard of monitoring results, available for each collection and monitor

“Postman’s vision of a unified workflow executing across an integrated lifecycle will allow developers to plug in the tools they already use to a common framework supporting API delivery,” commented Craig. “Such an approach helps grease the wheels of Development and DevOps teams, who require a common view across tools to facilitate cross-lifecycle collaboration.”
