Postman Now Supports Importing HAR Files

We are excited to announce that Postman now supports importing HAR (HTTP Archive) files, in addition to the other formats that we already support (cURL, OpenAPI 3.0, GraphQL, and more). Now available in Postman v9.6 and above, this feature has been one of the oldest and most popular feature requests we’ve received from our community.

HAR is a JSON-based format typically generated by HTTP-based tools, including most web browsers. It is used for detecting and troubleshooting issues, primarily related to performance and page rendering. Import your HAR files directly into Postman and use the generated collections to visualize your requests, replay captured sessions, and easily examine your responses.

Getting started

Here’s how you can generate collections from a HAR file in Postman—in just a few steps:

  1. In the left-hand sidebar, click Import.
  2. Choose your HAR data to be imported as files, folders, links, raw text, or code repositories.
  3. Configure the advanced options if required to include cookies, exclude responses, or modify how the requests are organized.
  4. Click Import.

  • Amazing !
    Now those who use Insomnia can export to HAR file and after that import this within Postman.

  • Excellent!

    Can we clarify in the docs that Chrome makes this really easy?

    Developer tools > Network -> Right click -> Copy as HAR
