Question for Kin:
I discovered I have a lot of collections in Profile / My Collections, but only few of them are used in workspaces. I would like to know if there is an easy way, given a collection, to know if it belongs to a workspace or not, so that I can keep it or delete it.
Thanks in advance
Welcome to the community!
You can do this using the Postman API. You need to:
- List all collections associated with your user.
- List all collections associated with all your workspaces.
- Locate all collections from step 1 that aren’t present in step 2.
This can be a little cumbersome. I created a script that uses postmanctl and jq to help out. You’ll need to install both tools, which should work cross-platform. The script, however, will need to be modified for Windows.
This will only list the collection UIDs. You can use
postmanctl to get more details:
postmanctl describe collection <uid>.
Hope that helps,
Thanks a lot for your help!
I have installed your tool but failed when configuring the API key.
Do you have an example of the expected content for
An example config file is here: https://github.com/kevinswiber/postmanctl/blob/master/configs/example.postmanctl.yaml, but you don’t have to edit this directly.
Here are instructions for configuring access: https://github.com/kevinswiber/postmanctl/tree/master/configs#configuring-access. You’ll need a Postman API Key to add to your configuration, which can be generated here: https://go.postman.co/settings/me/api-keys.
Hope that helps.
I succeed in having the list of orphans and could compare and check it is correct!
Thanks a lot
