Postman Monitor / error : getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND

Dear all,

I’m configuring Postman Monitor to schedule night executions.

However I’m facing the following error in the monitor console log:

Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND ...

Note that I’m working on the private network of my company.

When I send the request manually without the monitor it is working fine.

Thank you for help.

Hi @nicolas.lamblin2,

Welcome to the Community :wave:!

I believe this has been addressed a few times in the forum but happy to help here. You mention:

Note that I’m working on the private network of my company.

The URL has to be publically available on the Internet for Monitoring. More information can be found here:

Monitors require all URLs to be publicly available on the internet as they run in the Postman cloud. A monitor cannot directly access your localhost or run requests behind a firewall. However, to overcome this issue, static IPs are available on Postman Business and Enterprise plans.

I hope this helps!

Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND {{host}}

Hi SabriH,

I am getting exactly same error for below command

POST : http://{{host}}/api/v1/oauth/token.json

I am not able to find variable {{HOST}}, which I didn’t define.


Please respond or suggest something.
