Postman 7.35 just made its first appearance on our downloads page. You’re probably wondering what’s new in it so let me break it to you, it’s all about OAuth 2! It also turns out that my esteemed colleague @premang.vikani1 had already written about it so I’ll be stealing his words for this post.
Store token generation configurations
You can now save the information required to generate an OAuth token with the request or collection and you won’t have to enter these details again when you’re generating a new token. This information will be sharable with the request/collection as well.
This is helpful if you have multiple requests using different OAuth servers or if you’re sharing a request with someone and they need the details to generate the token.
A word of caution: OAuth token generation information can contain sensitive data. Like other authentication methods, we encourage you to use environment variables to mask this when sharing the request or collection.
Share OAuth 2.0 parameters
An OAuth token contains sensitive information and hence, it should be shared carefully. You can now optionally choose to share a token with the request or collection. All you have to do is sync the token. By default, we will not sync it. If you don’t sync the token, it will still be present in your local session and can be used by you in the app but it won’t be stored with the request on Postman cloud.
As usual we’ve also pushed various improvements and bug fixes. For example, if you’re working with a lot of environment variables, the experience should now be much smoother. You can find the complete list of improvements and bug fixes in the complete release notes.
Don’t forget to download the latest app, and let us know if you have any feedback!
