Adding a collection to the team library

To add a collection to the team library, (1) click on share button(next to each collection), which opens up a modal window. This modal is similar to the one that we had earlier but with an extra ‘Team sharing’ option.

Sharing a collection

(2) Tick checkbox ‘Read only’ if you want to make the collection read only for other team members. (3) Click on ‘share’ button under ‘Team Sharing’.

Read Only – What it means : When you create a read-only collection, your team mates can subscribe to it, but they cannot edit it. Any changes that you(owner) make propagates to all its subscribers instantly. They cannot save requests or add new request to the collection or update the collection documentation. They can however create a duplicate copy of the same and make changes to it.

On an editable collection, the changes made by your team member, propagates to the owner as well as other subscribers of the collection.

Subscribing to a collection

Click on “API Library” on the top of the app.
