Intro to collections

What is a Postman Collection?

A Postman Collection lets you group individual requests together. You can organize these requests into folders.

Why create collections?

Here are several reasons why you should create collections.


You can group together requests into folders and collections, so that you don't have to search through your history repeatedly.


You can add a name and descriptions to requests, folders, and collections. In Postman, you can use the collection browser to view the documentation.

Test suites

You can attach test scripts to requests and build integration test suites.

Conditional workflows

You can use scripts to pass data between API requests and build workflows that mirror your actual API use case.
