Postman is an API platform for developers to design, build, test and iterate their APIs. Now let’s connect Travis CI with Postman and learn something new!
To get started on the integration with Postman in Travis, first you’ll need to login to Postman, and setup Newman. Once you’ve added Newman, add the Newman configuration you copied from Postman to the
.travis.yml file. My current
.travis.yml file looks like this:
language: node_js node_js: - "12.18.3" install: - npm install newman before_script: - node --version - npm --version - node_modules/.bin/newman --version script: - node_modules/.bin/newman run https://api.getpostman.com/collections/4946945-3673316a-9a35-4b0d-a148-3566b490798d?apikey=$KEY --environment https://api.getpostman.com/environments/16724969-8e6c6119-ed57-4665-b4f9-f648c5637484?apikey=$KEY
Note, you’ll need to eplace all instances of
$KEY with a valid Postman API key. The Newman GUI will look a little like this:
So now make a commit, and push your code. To view the test results in Postman, open your API and select the Tests tab.
You now have an idea on how Postman and Travis work together using Newman. As always, if you have any questions, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org for help/and or if you need assistance with this tutorial.
