Scheduling runs with monitors

You can automate collection runs using monitors to schedule runs and receive reports on your request test results.

To add or access monitors for a particular collection, open a collection in the left sidebar of Postman, and select the Monitors tab,

Monitors for collection

Any monitors already attached to your collection will appear. Click Create a monitor to add one (or + Add monitor if you already have one on the collection).

Add new monitor to collection

Give your monitor a name, choose a version tag, and an optional environment your scheduled collection runs should reference. Enter the frequency you want your monitor to run on, and select a region. Click Create and your monitor will run on the schedule you entered.

New monitor created

You can open the web dashboard to view your monitor results at any time. Your new monitor will appear in the collection overview.
