You can use Keen IO for API-based computation, Amazon S3 backups, and building visualizations and dashboards for your APIs. Connect your Postman Monitor results to Keen Streams with the Postman to Keen Integration.

  2. Select Projects.

Viewing data in Keen IO

Within a few minutes, you should start to see data flowing into Keen IO if your Monitor is running. If you’ve sent the results of multiple Postman Monitors to Keen, you’ll be able to segment by Monitor name/id, Collection name/id, error code, and so on.

Here’s a preview of analyses from the Postman Monitors integration. You can build visualizations into dashboards that your team or customers can view with Keen dashboard templates.
