Variable type at the collection level

Good afternoon Postman peeps.

I have to say, I really like the addition of the variable type for global variables. That has really helped me when demoing to customers, etc to hide sensitive data.

I was wondering if you were planning on adding this option to collection level variables as well? I was a bit surprised it wasn’t an option at the collection level variables.

Hi @psavage_jtv,

As per postman documentation, we can use secret type in global and environment variables. But not in collection variables.

If we are dealing with multiple environments, then keeping sensitive data in environment will make more sense than keeping in Collection variables.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
