I did export however I got an empty set. I logged in and didn’t see the data. How to get them ? where are they stored ?
Did you not see a
Migrate Data option, to bring the data from Scratchpad to a Workspace?
For me on macOS the following worked out:
Create new Workspace
In the prompt click on “files” button
Select a backup file from when last time you worked with Collections. Backup files are located in
so so much thanks man, Thanks for the solution
we should show a small window showing a alert as part of this update to all user
as many peoples facing the same issue.
I lost my collections too and I don’t know how to bring those back. I lost hours of work I don’t even want to think about it. I can’t find any local files. Can someone help me please?
Have you tried to either to
Migrate the data from Scratchpad into a Workspace or used the
These can be accessed via the Settings > Data section.
In order to Import the data into Postman, you’re going to need to Sign In.
I lost all of my collections also. I was working locally on Windows and was not using ScratchPad. I tried looking for them. I found “Users[myusername]\Postman” but it was empty except for an empty “files” sub-directory. Please tell me how to restore my collections so I can import them into my online workspace.
UPDATE: I did find "Users[myusername]\AppData\Roaming\Postman" with multiple sub-directories, several of which appear to be “databases”. Is this where my missing collections might be?
Gracias idiotas por cambiar todo y hacerme perder todo. Sigan asi, asi se hace.
Hey all ,
Are the options listed here not working for folks, who have moved from Scratchpad to a Workspace?
Yes, the Migrate Data did work for me.
However it showed this message although it seems everything was correctly restored but I cannot be sure since I have tons of data
I DO NOT suggest to click “Try again” because it will duplicate all data already imported… and then will show the same message.
I would send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org but what info should I include?
If you include all the information that you have posted here, that will be very useful.
If any additional information is required, the team will let you know.
I had the same condition. I found the backup files in the folder C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Postman. The files, there were some, are named like backup-2023-09-18T08-00-30.744Z.json. I created a collection and restored the json file created the day before Postman was update. This way I got my collection back.
@santiapostoli Many thanks! I missed those in my searching. I was focusing on the multiple sub-directories and completely overlooked these! Thanks again!!!
Well, POSTMAN used to be a very nice tool - with this move I will never use it AGAIN!
Just losing all my local collection before a meeting with customer. Standing in the rain and then being forced to do thing - bullshit - absolut bullshit.
Adam, have you went through this process of migrating your data?
Does that solve your issue?
unfortunately, only the history of the last few days remains
How do I export old local client Collections and Environments to JSON?
Now that I was updated to 10.18, I don’t have access to my local Collections and Environments from the old local client.
Thank you. Very helpful. It’s good that Postman does backup (I didn’t even know about it). I have recovered the files. Thanks to the Postman team for coming up with the idea of doing backup. By the way, I found the path to the backup file through Double Commander, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen it through a regular Finder.
I am having the same problem only that I signed in to my desktop app with an account that I have. Now I cant find any local backups. Anyone able to recover their collections after signing in ? I am using Windows.
Bump. Posted another thread about it. The latest update on MacOS in fact erased all collection data. There are no backups at all in the application support folder.
