Postman recently announced that their platform now supports importing OpenAPI 3.0 specifications. This addition increases flexibility across formats within Postman, and allows Postman to more seamlessly integrate into developer’s API development workflow.
OpenAPI support will be available to all Postman users running v 6.6. OpenAPI provides a standardized format which allows API developers to perform quick and simple validation, auto-generate documentation with examples for easy integration, auto-generate client libraries and tests, and much more. This allows the developer to simultaneously take advantage of both OpenAPI and Postman Collections.
Abhinav Asthana, CEO & Co-founder, Postman, said, “Importing OpenAPI specs has been a much requested feature from Postman users, and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver it today. We are committed to becoming the leading platform for API development, and today’s announcement is critical to that vision.”
Postman, the only complete API development environment, is designed for the entire lifecycle of designing, building, testing, and monitoring APIs. It’s packed with all the features to support every stage of API development, and benefits developers working individually, collaborating in small teams or industry leading enterprises.
In an interview with Daily Host News, Abhinav Asthana said, “Postman API network is the most authentic collection of APIs currently published. In simple words, it makes your API discoverable. Thousands of developers are already using Postman to share private and public collections. With the help of our beautiful documentation, Run in Postman button and option to publish to the API network, they can create a brand for their team or the collection.”
“We have about 200 collections across 10 categories that can be imported into your Postman instance just with a click of a button so it’s very easy consumption. We also recently launched a self-serve feature where developers can submit their APIs directly to the API Network so it’s very easy onboarding to the network.”
Postman is an integral part of API development in the best technology teams in the world, including Atlassian, VMware, PayPal, and Docusign.
