Description: Postman Chrome Plug-in is a testing application for running tests against application programming interfaces (APIs). The technology runs in the Google Chrome web browser as a Plug-in. An application programming interface (API) is a collection of software functions and procedures through which other software applications can be accessed or executed. In API testing, one uses software to send calls to the API, get output and log the system`s response. Postman allows one to organize, test, and monitor application API requests in one collaborative chain.

This technology comes in three editions: Postman, Postman Pro, and Postman Enterprise. All three editions have the same base capabilities. Postman Pro offers additional capabilities for collaboration. The enterprise edition includes single-sign-one capabilities and additional support. These additions are applicable to the Postman Chrome Plug-in as well as the native Postman application.

All data is stored in MySQL databases on Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).

Note: This entry only covers the Chrome plug-in, not the macOS, Linux and Windows desktop applications. The native application includes features which include the ability to work directly with cookies, a built-in proxy to monitor network traffic, and the ability to add headers.

The TRM decisions in this entry only apply to technologies and versions owned, operated, managed, patched, and version-controlled by VA. This includes technologies deployed as software installations on VMs within VA-controlled cloud environments (e.g. VA Enterprise Cloud (VAEC)). Cloud services provided by the VAEC, which are listed in the VAEC Service Catalog, and those controlled and managed by an external Cloud Service Provider (i.e. SaaS) are not in the purview of the TRM. For more information on the use of cloud services and cloud-based products within VA, including VA private clouds, please see the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office (ECSO) Portal at:
