New Postman Integration – Run Collections via APImetrics

[iee_empty_space type="horizontal" height="10" width="10" hide_on_mobile="small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility" class="" id="" /] Here at APImetrics we are really excited to announce our new type of integration for Postman users. We understand that importing collections and keeping them in sync can be additional extra work so we've decided to address that. We have created a new service, available to all users, where you can create and maintain your collections in Postman, but run those collections remotely in the cloud via APImetrics. There's no set up or configuration, collections will run exactly the same way as they do in Postman, except you'll be able to take advantage [...]

Microprocurement: Don’t Nonitor. Monitor!

If you want an active API monitoring solution, that's CAPEX. It's a software system, so you have to go through the whole heavyweight procurement cycle with RfIs and RfPs and RfQs and supplier approval. You might end up [...]

Daily and Weekly Status Mails

We've now added one of the features that everybody has been asking for, daily and weekly alert status mails. The emails will initially cover the basics - the number of calls you've made, the number of APIs monitored and not monitored and the alerts you've had during that day or week.
