What’s new in Postman 7.29?

:cowboy_hat_face:Howdy!

Let’s see what’s new in version 7.29 of Postman. Update your app or download the latest version of Postman to see these enhancements.

Here’s what’s new:

Autocomplete in the Postman sandbox

The Postman sandbox comes pre-installed with certain Node.js libraries and other powerful capabilities. Now, when you’re writing pre-request and test scripts, Postman will help out with autocompletion and syntax suggestions. Use your arrow keys and Tab / Enter to accept the suggestions.

This will let you code a bazillion times faster :rocket: And you can learn about new methods, properties, and parameters - it’s Just-in-Time learning!

New $isoTimestamp dynamic variable

If you need to include a timestamp with your API calls, now you can use the $isoTimestamp dynamic variable. This is an ISO-formatted timestamp - just one of the many dynamic variables included in Postman, so you don’t have to generate random inputs on your own.

Validate OpenAPI 3.0 while importing / editing

Authoring and validating API schemas can be cumbersome. Postman is making it easier to do your schema validation :mag:

If your team uses OpenAPI version 3.0 for API-first design and development, now you can view all schema validation issues in-line while you’re editing the definition. Issues are also summarized at the bottom, so you can find them all in one spot and fix them quickly.

And that’s all she wrote! If you’d like to see the complete list of improvements and bug fixes that were part of this release, check out the full release notes.

Don’t forget to download the latest app, and let us know if you have any feedback!

Autocomplete was a specific requirement for a client of mine when I pitched using postman to them back in September last year… thank you for adding it now, this will be a great thing going forward I am sure.

@Whersh - you can let them know that you’re responsible for it :grin: - and be sure to let us know what you think once you have a chance to try it out.
