Move existing collections to Lightweight API Client?

If you have been using Postman and have existing collections/requests, is there a way they can be moved to the Lightweight API Client version?

Hi @ksmears !

This is a great question.

While it would be possible to run your existing requests by exporting them and re-importing as a cURL command, collections and environments do not exist in the lightweight API client and require you to be signed in to a Postman account to use.

Hope this helps!

If you want a working fully offline environment you’ll have to switch to a different tool, most of the postman competition is currently rolling out scratchpad like functionality to take advantage of the blunder by postman so you will most probably find something that suits your needs by looking at alternatives.

We’re building the most trusted API platform backed by the most trusted organization. More than 25 million developers and 500,000 organizations worldwide trust Postman.
