Postman Now Supports OpenAPI 3.1


We are excited to announce that the Postman API Platform now supports OpenAPI 3.1 files. OpenAPI 3.1 is the latest version of OpenAPI and was released in February of last year. We already support all previous versions of OpenAPI (3.0, 2.0, and 1.0) along with other API specification formats like WSDL, RAML, and GraphQL. OpenAPI 3.1 adds support for describing webhooks, full compatibility with JSON Schema’s latest draft (2020–12), and API license identification via the standard SPDX identifier along with other smaller changes.

With this release, you can import OpenAPI 3.1 files in Postman, edit them directly in our editor, and generate collections from them.

Getting started

Here’s how you can import OpenAPI 3.1 files and generate collections from them:

  1. In the left-hand sidebar, click Import.

  2. Choose the OpenAPI 3.1 file to be imported.

  3. Configure the advanced options for the collection that will be generated, like whether to include cookies, exclude responses, etc.

  4. Click Import.

  2. In the modal that appears, click API.

  3. Enter the name and version of your API and select OpenAPI 3.1 as the schema type.

  4. Click on Create API.

    Please don’t write factually incorrect statements. Postman does not “support” OpenAPI 3.1 because we still cannot export from Postman to OpenAPI. Postman has only partial support for OpenAPI 3.1. To claim otherwise is false advertising.


    Agreed. If you’re going to say ‘support’, actually mean it. Or at least be ACCURATE in your limited description of the functionality.
