Postman is an excellent too for calling APIs and automating them. But there’s a big difference between using a tool and using it effectively in real testing scenarios. Once you’ve understood the basics, it’s time to make sure it works for you, and use the automation power to create workflows you can maintain, edit, version and use well as part of the whole development process.
In this tutorial we’ll first do a quick run through the basic Postman functions, and then move on to practice different aspects of using it for real life scenarios. We’ll discuss testing aspects and how to apply them for use in Postman

- Test planning and design for the APIs given
- Setup and clean up for workflows in different scenarios
- Running scenarios in different environments
- Assert on the right and important things
- Organizing collections and folders
- Refactoring code in tests
- Naming requests according to run’s context
- Automating runs and reporting correctly
- Exploring APIs

Postman is a tool. We need it to make sure it answers our testing and automation needs. But we it’s up to us to use it correctly in our process.

Key Takeaways

- Considerations on how Postman fits the development cycle
- Ho to apply testing techniques and methodology in Postman
- How to apply good coding techniques in pre-requests and tests depending on automation needs

Prerequisites for participant:
Please bring a Laptop with Postman installed (latest version, but any recent).
