    API Blueprint to Postman


    1. Install the package globally

      npm i -g @apib/2postman
    2. Obtain an API blueprint definition file. This is usually created with markdown using API blueprint syntax. You can then feed this blueprint into the following command to have a Postman collection generated from it.

    3. Run the command to generate a Postman collection and environment

      apib2postman <your-blueprint.apib> -o collection.json -e environment.json

    Command Line Options

    apib2postman <api-blueprint.apib> [options]
    • -o <output>, --output <output>

      Default stdout

      Specify a file for where the collection will be saved.

    • -e <env-output>, --environment <env-output>

      Default API.postman_environment.json

      Specify a file for where the environment template will be saved.

    • -t <test-template>, --testTemplate <test-template>

      Default templates/postman/actions/js-tests.hbs

      Specify a handlebar template to be used for each action's Postman tests. Variables are listed below which can be used within the template.

    Postman Test Template

    Some JS tests have been created which get templated and attached to every action. The default tests exist at templates/postman/js-tests.hbs

    This template is applied to every action and the variables which get passed to this template are as follows:

    Name Description Example
    pathName The path of the group collection as a standardized name. networkDevices_ for /api/networkDevices/:id
    isPageable Returns true if the response schema has a collection within true
    sortParams The accepted sort parameters parsed from the sort query parameter description [ "name", "category" ]
    request The same request definition passed to the postman collection template { }
    response The same response definition passed to the postman collection template { }
