Overall Satisfaction with Postman

Postman is what we use to test our API systems. We have a variety of public and private API systems, all of which are tested by my team using Postman. We've created separate collections for each, such as Smoke tests, which we run at each test deployment and Functional tests. These tests are continually updated (collection). My issue is that it lacks database connectivity, either relational or trendy-document databases like MongoDB. I have no choice but to export data from these databases and feed it into Postman. This is the only manual step a user must take; the rest of our tests are entirely automated.
  • Postman API allows you to access data in your Postman account using code. Execute all of the standard CRUD operations on your collections, environments, mocks, and other objects.
  • Postman used to be a platform where people worked alone and independently tested APIs. Working together has never been easier with features like commenting, forking, branching, pull requests, tagging, and more.
  • In the Pre-request and Test script tabs of Postman, you can use a set of external libraries. These libraries make life easier for developers by providing functionality that isn't always available in JavaScript.
  • Wherever you need to automate tests that involve database verification or rely on data from databases, Postman is less suitable.
  • Postman's disc usage is extremely high, and it occasionally causes the computer to fade.
  • It doesn't have the ability to generate random data. To achieve randomness in my tests, I've been working around scripts.
  • Workflow Control.
  • Collaboration Features.
  • Collection-Level Information.
Everyone is familiar with Postman as being a helpful tool for testing APIs.

When dealing with a collection of requests, it's common to run them in the order they were received. Other times, skipping or repeating certain requests is beneficial. The mailman arrives. The method SetNextRequest. You can programmatically choose which requests run and in what order by using conditional logic in the Pre-request or Tests tabs.
