Version control for Postman collections and environments

Postman provides version control for your API collections and environments so you can iteratively and collaboratively build your APIs in Postman. Learn how to fork a collection or environment, make updates to the fork, create a pull request, and merge your changes into the parent element.

  • You can fork collections, environments, and Flows from a parent element. Forking enables you to contribute to an element without having Editor access to that element. Learn more about forking Postman elements.

  • Create a pull request when you're ready to merge changes you made in your forked element into the parent element. Learn more about creating pull requests.

  • You can view the changes, comment, approve or decline the request, and merge the forked collection or environment into the parent element. Learn more about reviewing pull requests.

  • Watch a pull request to receive in-app notifications when a team member modifies a pull request. Learn more about watching pull requests.

Version control for collections and environments is different from API versioning. For information on managing multiple versions of APIs, see Manage your API changes using version control.
