Create your first workspace

Postman workspaces enable you to organize and work together on API projects with your team. Within each workspace you can share APIs, collections, environments, and other Postman elements.

When you first open Postman, you will be in your default personal workspace. You can create more workspaces for your personal use and to work with teammates. To create more workspaces, you need to sign in to your Postman account.

To create a new workspace, do the following:

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

  2. Select Workspaces in the upper left. Select Create Workspace to add a new workspace. You can also search for existing workspaces using the search bar or select one from the dropdown list.

    Change workspace or create new
  3. You can use workspace templates to help you set up a new workspace. Select a workspace template to populate the workspace with helpful information and sample collections, or select Blank workspace to create an empty workspace. Then select Next.

    Create new workspace
  4. Enter a Name for your workspace.

  5. Choose who can access the workspace:

  6. Select Create.

    Create new workspace

Postman will switch to your new workspace when you create it. You can start editing and adding to it right away.

You can move between workspaces at any time by selecting from the Workspaces dropdown list in the upper left.
