Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The variables part is good. We can easily define the variables and we don't have to manually do a change every time, it gets automatically updated.""Simple to use and you can easily store your projects.""The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution.""What is most valuable for me is that we can create and share collections between the team members.""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.""We can also submit requests multiple times and it allows us to capture the response each time by using utility scripts.""With Postman you can do automation. Automation has increased efficiency by more than 30% or 40%. Because the speed has increased, it's also possible for us to do in-sprint automation testing.""No coding required."

"What I find valuable is that Tricentis is always refining the test methodology. They listen to feedback from the analysts about what the testing tool should do, and then Tricentis always implements it. So all the necessary testing functions are already implemented in their tools.""It is easy to maintain and easy to automate. No coding skills are required to automate. It is also easy in terms of transferring knowledge and skills. Many of my team members shifted over the past one and a half years, and there was no big issue with respect to knowledge sharing. It is a good tool that enables me to re-automate my scripts and update my scripts as quickly as possible. Looking at the amount of rework and maintenance activity that we had done for our scripts, it might have been a nightmare with some other scripting tool.""This solution is very easy to learn and any non-programmer or manual tester, with little experience in automation, can pick it up quite easily.""The initial setup isn't too difficult.""It can provide all levels of testing from design to execution to reporting.""The reporting is really nice.""We like the fact that it works across mobile, desktop, web, and APIs. Due to this, the solution has a broad range of applications.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is the recovery and cleanup process. Suppose there is a list of test cases and one test case has failed, it should not impact the other test cases. We can reuse the same test case. We can change the configuration of parameters and then use the test cases on the same thing. So, that's a useful thing. Otherwise, we have to use the cleanup process. Another useful feature is to have our own library files. We can create our objects in the libraries and reuse them. There is no need to create duplicate data for that. They have been giving some enhancements recently which means integration is also there. They've integrated with different software like Jenkins, Bamboo. So, we can also create pipeline points. They have recently given SAP and everything, which is very useful."

Cons
"If we have a certain build on one machine it won't work with another build even if we are using the same URL. It would give us a connection refuse. So developing environment compatibility would make it better.""The solution is quite complex partly because the UI needs simplification.""The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan.""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.""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.""There needs to be more flexibility surrounding the testing of SOAP APIs.""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.""An area that needs some improvement would be to allow multiple windows with different collections to be open at the same time."

More Postman Cons →

"You need to spend much more time learning the tool and how to use it, compared to others.""The solution needs to improve its simulation of mobile environments. Right now, that aspect is really lacking.""They can make it more stable. I have used this tool for SAP applications. They have an alliance with SAP, and it mostly worked fine, but there were a few glitches. However, we got the required support from the Tricentis team. They are coming up with their new versions and upgrades with respect to how the Tricentis systems as cloud applications are updated, and it would be good if they have a robust accelerator pack.""The user management could improve in Tricentis Tosca because it is confusing. It would be better to have it in one place. Having to add it to the cloud and to a specific project can be a mess.""It would be of great help if they can fix the loading or performance issues. Sometimes, when I create the test case folder and test cases, it feels like it has loading or performance issues. When passing the objects, we can't sometimes find the exact element. We need to find out that exact location and just give the path for that, and then it works. In the pipeline, when creating Jenkins, we create the list execution for passing the execution list to the commander. I feel it is a bit late, by a fraction of seconds. I first thought it could be my mistake or a setting issue, but I worked on that, and it's not a mistake or a setting issue.""While the initial setup was straightforward, we required assistance with the configuration to ensure that everything was done correctly.""I would like to see better integration with other testing tools.""I have found that some of the functions could be missed in the solution for new users. They are not obviously present."
