In my API testing workflow in Postman, I often find myself repeating the same tests, functions, and function calls across multiple requests and collections. This can lead to redundancy and decreased efficiency in my testing process. I’m looking for tips and best practices on how to effectively organize tests, functions, and function calls in Postman to streamline my workflow and make it more manageable.
I have a variety of requests with similar test scenarios, and I want to avoid duplicating test scripts and functions.
Postman runs on the principal of collections, folders and requests.
With a tests tab at each of those levels.
If you want to run the same test for every request in a collection or folder, you would put it in the appropriate test tab, but it does mean it will run for every request at that level. (which ultimately means I hardly ever use this feature).
It doesn’t have the concept of shared test cases in the traditional sense (which would probably be a feature request).
