With the advent of microservices based infrastructure, APIs are now the drivers behind product architecture. With so many APIs to consume, developers have a hard time staying up to date. They spend hours fixing bugs due to the lack of documentation and it takes months to onboard new hires. Tools like build systems and internal documentation portals also fall out of sync and have to be updated manually, sucking up hours of development time.
We are launching Postman Cloud to help you solve these problems, supercharge your team, and help you produce awesome APIs.
Postman Cloud lets your team share and manage collections of APIs they consume in real-time. Collections are groupings of API endpoints that include documentation and test scripts. Cloud makes your team faster because every developer gets a complete list of API collections your team utilizes and all updates are made in real-time. With Cloud, you will now have an auto-updating source of truth for all your APIs. As collections are edited, everyone is notified and changes are reflected in their collections automatically. Cloud also creates documentation web-pages automatically from Collections. You don’t have to do a thing!
Cloud was built with feedback from thousands of developers who were part of our team sync beta which we are now sunsetting. Hundreds of teams have already signed up for Cloud, including companies such as 23andMe, Jet, Groupon, and Real Networks. Read one company’s experience here.
All this while, we haven’t forgotten our champions – the individual developer. As we’ve built Postman Cloud, we realized a Mac app gives developers a better user experience. Today, we are releasing a beta app which gives individual users the full testing suite for free. If you have a Postman account, you can sync your data to the Mac app and get started right away.
We are excited about the potential Postman Cloud unfolds for team collaboration and efficiency. More benefits are being added every day. Get started with Cloud today.
Note: Postman Cloud is now called Postman Pro.
