Postman Collections allow you to group multiple requests together which you can store in folders and reuse later on as needed.

Advantages of using Postman Collections

Postman Collections gives you the following advantages:

  • Keeps your workspace organized. You can keep all your requests in one location so that you can reuse them whenever you need.
  • Share collections with your teammates for easier collaboration. For example – if you create a signup API request with user details in the body, when you share the collection they will have access to the same information
  • Postman can generate API documentation by taking advantage of the collections
  • Run your collections together. For example, if you have 10 API requests in your collection, you can now run all of them together instead of running each one of them individually and you can then automate your test runs using collections

Collections are a really powerful concept in Postman and understanding how to create and use collections effectively will really help you a lot in API testing.
