Overall Satisfaction with Postman

Postman is used by several departments: QA, Dev, IT monitoring. Each of them is having their use cases by checking performance and response times during development, testing, or on production environment. Also, teams are connected around one tool, and data sharing or cross-checks for SLI/SLO parameters get easier. It can be integrated into the CI/CD pipeline.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Integration was possible everywhere I tried.

Cons

  • Sharing option is limited between the team
  • Its not possible to test more than 1 API simultaneously
  • API quality and performance check automated
  • Different teams are using same tool data
I did not use SoapUI and can't compare them. But, Postman gave results my team needed, that's why we did not test any other software. Runs simple, gives instant and exact results.
When we started implementation, there were some questions regarding integration. The support response was for 12h, and we got a detailed explanation about what the team asked. They are ready to help and share knowledge.
