Seattle – APImetrics has launched a new monitoring service for Postman users, the company announced yesterday.
“We are very excited to launch this product, which will allow users of Postman to monitor API global performance without having to do any configuration at all,” said David O’Neill, CEO of APImetrics.
Utilizing the Postman Newman runtime system, users can now monitor and track the performance of their APIs directly from their Postman collections externally from more than 40 worldwide locations on the world’s three major clouds: AWS, Azure and Google.
“This is the first time a third-party product has been launched to help Postman users monitor APIs from such a broad base of data centers and in such a standardized way,” O’Neill said. “This was a highly requested feature from our customers. We believe this is something that is desperately needed in the field.”
With zero configuration required, this means developers can, for the first time, go directly from a collection in Postman to worldwide performance monitoring.
The APImetrics product provides notifications and alerts on performance, pass/fails and other data points like quality via Slack, Pager Duty, OpsGenie and related devops tools, as well as integrated, real-time public dashboards. For fields like Open Banking, APImetrics are even adding pre-configured, regulator ready reports.
“Our users wanted complementary monitoring and scoring capabilities with their existing Postman API Collections.”One of the challenges our users faced was the overhead in moving from their preferred development and collection management environment of Postman and into our industry-leading monitoring and scoring,” O’Neill said. “This new integration removes that barrier and allows organizations to go straight from their collection to monitoring, alerting and reporting seamlessly.”
Postman CEO and co-founder Abhinav Asthana said, “We are very pleased to partner with APImetrics. Postman’s collaborative platform simplifies building APIs, and working with APImetrics to monitor API performance globally offers a natural extension of capabilities for our users.”
The APImetrics integration is available for immediate use for any premium Postman account and APImetrics is offering discounts on their standard SaaS packages for Postman users.
