Announcing Postman for the Web, Now in Open Beta
Update, September 2020: Postman for the web has now moved out of beta and into general availability (GA). You can check it out here. Be sure to read the rest of this post to learn what you can do with this new experience.
Today, we’re proud to announce a new beta version of Postman that we’ve been working on to address a wide range of requests from our fantastic user community: Postman on the web. (If you just can’t wait, you can try it here right now.)
The web version of Postman—which is now instantly accessible directly at all times via https://go.postman.co/home—offers a range of experience and performance improvements, but we want to highlight just a few of the most notable advancements:
- Simplify access and onboarding: Now you and your team can get easy and fast access to Postman from your browser. The web version of Postman provides instant access to Postman without having to install a desktop app. You’re always on the latest version, so you don’t ever have to worry about manual updates. This makes it much easier for you and your team to access Postman, and faster to onboard new users with minimal friction.
- Optimize collaboration via deep linking: Now that Postman is on the web, everything in Postman has a URL, allowing you to share URLs to granular API elements. This deep-linking functionality in Postman allows you to improve collaboration across your company by having contextual links to access any API elements in Postman. This makes it much easier for your team to share and find API development information.
- Send requests at scale from your browser: One of the challenges of browser-based clients is the limitations of sending large volumes of HTTP requests. Postman has developed a unique agent architecture that allows you to send requests at scale via your browser interface. (If you want to learn more about the new Postman agent architecture, check out our technical deep dive here.)
We’re ready for your feedback
The Postman team has worked incredibly hard for the last several years to bring this to you, and we’re really excited to get it into your hands.
Now, we’d like your help: Please jump into the beta and push it, poke it, and give it your best shot. Then let us know your feedback in this community thread.
We’re looking forward to making the web version of Postman the strongest possible platform to help you do everything you need to do with APIs. Thanks for being part of the community.
How to run a test case, I do not have a Send button
What are the benefits of using Postman Web comparing to Postman Desktop if it requires another desktop tool to work – Postman Agent?
In my case the link https://go.postman.co/home redirects to https://web.postman.co/ so I can’t see the new version.
Anyone else with this problem too?
When i am sending the API request using web version, i am getting error as Error: “Browser does not support cross-origin request”
This is great, however, there is no way to send requests to machines located on a private network. Are there any plans to have this version of postman running in docker available through the browser? This would be great to offer a postman service internally within the private network of a company.
Thanks & Regards,
Not able to see the build. how to run the new collection
Hi Threkashri, Thanks for reading and responding. The Runner is now located at the bottom right of the screen (click on the “Runner” button).
Will it be possible to host our own postman web instance, or is it only available as a hosted service?
Hi Paul, Thanks for reading and commenting! It is only available as a hosted service.
This version is a big help to us as a non-profit promoting work on APIs in Postman.
In my case the link https://go.postman.co/build redirects to https://web.postman.co/ so I can’t see the new version.
so i cant use it at all
