"Good at simulating the API code from a fictitious client application to check API behavior.""It's easy to see different versions of responses.""Postman helps us to automate the API testing in the team.""It is stable and reliable.""The solution has a great user interface and collection of features.""In Postman, we have an option to directly import a call, make it a Postman collection, and execute it in a batch. This feature is very useful. It saves a lot of time. The manual effort is also reduced when we can just pick it in a Postman collection and then run and execute it to get the results.""The scalability is good.""The most valuable feature of Postman is the verification and testing of APIs."

More Parasoft SOAtest Cons →

"We have previously used Tosca which allowed us to verify information using authentications. It would be useful if this was also possible using Postman. In a future release, Postman should connect to DB.""I live in Turkey, so for me, the value of dollar currency is high...Postman can change its pricing policy and decrease the prices for Turkey.""The scalability of the solution can be improved.""The solution has some user interface difficulties when conducting environment collections.""Postman could be improved by providing options for performance testing of APIs.""Reporting can be better. If you have bigger APIs, it takes time.""They should integrate the solution with one of the CRM solutions.""The reporting could be better. It should give you a detailed PDF report after you run a test."
