Create your first collection

Postman Collections are a group of saved requests. Every request you send in Postman appears under the History tab of the sidebar. On a small scale, reusing requests through the history section is convenient. As your Postman usage grows, it can be time-consuming to find a particular request in your history. Instead of scrolling through your history section, you can save all your requests as a group for easier access.

Create your first collection

To create a new collection, you can start by creating a new request first. You can create a new request from the sidebar in Postman.

To create a collection, do the following:

  1. If you haven't already, install the Postman desktop app and sign in to Postman.

  2. Select New > HTTP.

    Create new request
  3. Enter a request in the request builder and select Save.

  4. Create a new collection by selecting New Collection. Enter a collection name, and then select Create.

    Save request to collection
  5. Select Save to save the request in the new collection.

After you save the request, your new collection and the request are listed under Collections in the sidebar.
