An exciting day today! We have gone live with our new importer, this has been built in conjunction with our partners at APImatic, to provide a more effective way of integrating and then monitoring your API collections from Postman and other collection managers. Key features include:
- Import directly from Postman or APIMATIC
- Use a URL to import an API specification of nearly any kind including from OpenAPI or GitHub
- Once the import has completed, you may need to set up any environment variables your API calls require. You may also want to check that your API calls have the correct Authentication settings
- Once you’ve reviewed your calls, you should set up a schedule for your new workflows
No matter which option you choose, you’ll get 1 or more workflows with 1 or more API calls.
If you change your Postman collection, you can manually trigger a resync while will allow us to pull in the revised APIs – the user then has the option to create a new collection for monitoring purposes or use the current ones. This means you can version your APIs and have a full audit trail of performance data for comparison purposes.

Coming soon, we will be providing a tighter integration to the Newman runtime which will allow continuous external monitoring with reliable OAuth based authentication from a variety of locations.
