Find out in this report how the two API Testing Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Good write and read files which save execution inputs and outputs and can be stored locally."
"Postman allows you to incorporate and export the test cases we create. It enables me to share the test cases with my colleagues, so I don't have to copy them into an Excel sheet. Postman lets me export the dataset and share it with my team. They can use my test case for their testing."
"We use it for REST API testing. Feature-wise, it is pretty lightweight. It is pretty fast, and we don't have to do a lot of things. We can just simply go and post our endpoint, and it gives different kinds of authorizations. We usually use authentication 2.0, which is the most common industry practice. So, it has the support for authorization through 2.0."
"It is simple, easy to use and a good tool."
"The environment variables are a valuable feature because I can easily switch them and see all the developments in different cycles and stages."
"One of the most valuable aspects of Postman is scalability. We can scale the collection and for the multiple repositories of the collections."
"The initial setup is simple."
"It is nice to have different workspaces. You have your personal workspace, and then you have a team workspace. In general, I like its UI. It is quite cool."
"I like that it is very easy to use. I also like the automation feature."
"From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly."
"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."
"To get this email reporting function, we have to integrate Postman with Newman. If the two are not integrated, we won't be getting all these things in one group."
"Integration of the solution towards Bitbucket, BitHub, and CI pipelines is difficult."
"I have recently noticed that, for some reason, I am not able to import collections in JSON. It is weird because I was able to do it before. When you create a new collection and documentation, in tests, you usually have to click Save. If you don't click Save, your collections don't sync with other devices, which is something I don't like. It is not clear for the users in a shared workspace, and I usually forget to click Save and end up losing all the collections that I created. I create a lot of routes, and clicking Save all the time isn't efficient. Instead of clicking Save all the time, there should be an option to save everything in one go."
"The request encryption could be one thing on which they can work a little bit. If we don't want to expose our production data but we still want to test our APIs on the production data, there should be a way to do that. It is not only with Postman. I think no tool in the market is doing that right now."
"One thing which Postman needs to improve is the documentation. The documentation of Postman is not that great when compared to other tools."
"We do the implementation of Postman and give support. We had to use two engineers for the implementation, one senior and one junior for the process."
