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, select the Monitors tab in the left sidebar of Postman.

Monitors v8

Any monitors already attached to your collection will appear. Click Create a monitor to add one (or + Create a new Monitor if you already have one on the collection). You can also add a monitor via a collection. To add a monitor via collection, go to the collection, click ... and select Monitor Collection.

Give your monitor a name, select a collection to use, 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.

Add new monitor to collection

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