Ability to keep variables 'private'

When using shared collections with teams, the environment variables that one person creates get shared out to everyone. This can be useful in 2 scenarios:

  1. In case of sensitive data, like internal URLs
  2. In case of dev instances of the same application. When dev teams are using the same collection to test their own individual endpoints, environments get really cluttered.

This feature may also partially solve the need for a private/onsite instance, see feature request on github by another user https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/5020

Hi @harsh.parekh, The latest version of the Postman exactly solves this.
So, here’s the good news: http://blog.getpostman.com/2018/08/09/sessions-faq/

After going through that blog, to turn off the current value from getting synced across the environment, you can go through this: https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/824#issuecomment-416910898

Thanks for the quick update! This is exactly what I need.

May I suggest a rewording? ‘Current value’ doesn’t exactly convey that it won’t be sync’d with cloud.
