Pros: Where I work we have to take a lot of different language formats (HTML, Javascript, JSON and so forth) my preference is XML and not only will it convert the Language format, it also has an option to "Beautify"

As long as you know what you are doing, Postman executes REST API's perfectly. You can set up your parameters, headers, text Bodies and even set up authorizations. I have dozens of calls saved so that it was remarkably easy to just run the API and it is good to go in seconds.

Cons: There are two things that I have found to be a challenge :

1. With large Response file bytes that come through, if can take a really long time to load and interact with the data. Postman can become sluggish and even non-responsive for longer periods of time. The fix is to set the bodies data to RAW and then it will run smooth, but by default, this option is not selected.

2. If you do not know what you are doing - this can feel not very user-friendly. There is a training section called "Bootcamp" but it told you what to do rather than what things are for. An example I have was I was trying to figure out what all of the different Methods produce but it would just tell me that the most common method is "GET" Just know that the training is more of a walkthrough rather than a roadmap.

Overall: I love using Postman because if does exactly what I want it to do. I work with enough people that we are always finding new features and seeing how much more we can use this service for our company.

Pros: I think the best part is that it is suitable for different kinds of roles in the IT industry. Whether you are a software engineer, business analyst or a test engineer it doesn't matter. The tool provides you tons of functionalities from creating automated tests to sharing your HTTP request collections with other colleagues. It also saves your previous requests and provides you historical access to these requests which can be useful.

Cons: When a new version is available and the one u use is deprecated a warning popup becomes visible indicating that the version is deprecated and the user must download the latest version from the website. It is good to inform the user about version changes but auto-update functionality would be really nice instead of directing the user to the website.

Overall: It helped me a lot during the software development and maintenance phases of projects.

Pros: Postman is an good application comes stand alone as well as plugin in google chrome for testing REST webservice interface effectively.

We can have a collection(Separate project) for related group of API.

we can export the collection easily and import in other postman application. we can even export as link and import in any postman.

All the interfaces are synced to your email address used for sign in. you can open the same interface in any system with the same email id.

Each requests fired is saved in the history and can be easily retrieved with search for any reference.

Cons: When you are using HTTPS interface, you need to adjust the settings for avoiding the SSL Issue.

It has very less support to SOAP interface.

Overall: Overall, this very good application for creating functional static test suits for REST interface.

Pros: If you're playing with APIs, you have a specific reason to do so. It's not just something that you just stumble upon.

I've started using Postman to help my work and understanding of the APIs that the LMS that I work for integrates with. APIs are a huge learning curve in general, and understanding who to leverage Postman is taking some time.

As far as I know, it's the standard in the industry and the interface is very intuitive if you know what things refer to.

Cons: So far, none. I'm working to understand more about APIs in general and the ways in which they can help admins of our LMS reduce some of the time it takes them to carry out different tasks.

Pros: I enjoy the UI of Postman because it is modern and visually pleasing while using the software. The software allows for various post data options such a JSON, plain text, and XML. This post data options are important because sometimes I need to analyze the data returned while fine tuning an implementation detail. The application allows you to share test cases from one system to another which is useful in team settings.

Cons: I can't point any specific negatives of the software because it is easy to use, user friendly, bug free, and offers many different features.

Overall: Overall, Postman is incredibly useful when testing API connections to different components of your applications. The software makes any integration between separate systems an easier and more enjoyable process. I highly recommend Postman for any API/integration needs.

Pros: Postman helps me test my APIs and what it does it does really good. I like that you can set-up multiple environments (in case you have multiple development instances), and it is really useful that you can export your configuration and share it with your colleagues.

Cons: One thing I don't like is that I couldn't find an option to export all my configuration (API calls and environments) with one action, but I had to do it separately - but this is not a big deal for me.
