I’m happy to address your follow-up questions:
Use collection variables.
I actually have no environment. I just have a collection, which has variables. Does this mean that collection variables not in an environment are not shared?
Not necessarily, your collection variables are still shared if you’re working on a shared collection in a team workspace and collection variables are created. They just won’t be exposed in the Web Interface the same way Environments do. As seen in the following screenshot:
When creating collection variables here, let’s say you have initial values set for the variable the will be shared with the Team.
What I’d like to understand is whether I can view my working directory files via the web interface.
No, that isn’t possible.
Can you do everything that the Postman Windows app does through the Postman web interface? The answer seems to be no. For example, I can edit collection variables using the app, but not through the web interface.
You are correct here. Currently, not everything can be accomplished via the web interface. It complements the native app but doesn’t necessarily imply all feature are available. You’ll also notice that sometimes the Native app will redirect to the Web Interface for certain things example when clicking on
Manage Team for your Team or more information on Usage etc…
I hope this helps.
