Setting up a team library

This page is deprecated. Team Library is only available for versions 5.0 and below.

Postman users with paid plans can use the Team Library to enhance collaboration among teammates. This feature enhances collaboration among teammates in several ways.

  • Share collections

    You can share collections with your team. Collections contain groups of API requests you can organize, add descriptions, attach test scripts, and build conditional workflows.

  • Share environments

    Teams can use environments to create and share a snapshot of a local environment. Users might have different environment variable values, so updates to these values are not synced between shared environments.

  • See the activity feed in the Team Library

    You can see changes to shared collections in the activity feed.

  • Subscribe to shared collections

    When you subscribe to a collection, you get a synced copy of this collection in your Postman app. If you have edit permissions for the collection, you can make changes that other subscribers to the collection can see.

Setting up the Team Library

To use your Team Library, open the Postman app and click the Team Library tab on the header bar.
