"Simple to use and you can easily store your projects.""What is most valuable for me is that we can create and share collections between the team members.""The user-interface is very good.""The variables part is good. We can easily define the variables and we don't have to manually do a change every time, it gets automatically updated.""We can also submit requests multiple times and it allows us to capture the response each time by using utility scripts.""It is nice to have different workspaces. You have your personal workspace, and then you have a team workspace. In general, I like its UI. It is quite cool.""The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution.""With Postman you can do automation. Automation has increased efficiency by more than 30% or 40%. Because the speed has increased, it's also possible for us to do in-sprint automation testing."

Cons
"From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly."

More Parasoft SOAtest Cons →

"There needs to be more flexibility surrounding the testing of SOAP APIs.""The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan.""Testing API is pretty straightforward in Postman, but it falls short when testing web services. For example, when we test web services, there is a visual component that we can import in SoapUI but not in Postman.""To get this email reporting function, we have to integrate Postman with Newman. If the two are not integrated, we won't be getting all these things in one group.""I have recently noticed that, for some reason, I am not able to import collections in JSON. It is weird because I was able to do it before. When you create a new collection and documentation, in tests, you usually have to click Save. If you don't click Save, your collections don't sync with other devices, which is something I don't like. It is not clear for the users in a shared workspace, and I usually forget to click Save and end up losing all the collections that I created. I create a lot of routes, and clicking Save all the time isn't efficient. Instead of clicking Save all the time, there should be an option to save everything in one go.""I would like that if you click on one of the fields you should be able to see the entire row of fields, names, and values.""The request encryption could be one thing on which they can work a little bit. If we don't want to expose our production data but we still want to test our APIs on the production data, there should be a way to do that. It is not only with Postman. I think no tool in the market is doing that right now.""Could be more user friendly."

    Top Answer: 
    From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly. Some aspects were difficult and therefore less useful for us, perhaps we lack the coding knowledge on that.
