Were you using Scratch Pad? Do you mean Collections or Workspaces?
Your Scratch Pad data can be Exported from the signed out Lightweight API Client, using ⚙️ > Settings > Data > Export data menu option. If your collections or environments contained data within the variable Current value, these will not be part of that exported file.
However, to Import these back into Postman, you will need to be signed in to the platform.
From a signed in account, you can use the ⚙️ > Settings > Data > Migrate data menu option, which will bring all of your Scratch Pad data into a new Workspace.
If you face any issues with the exporting or migrating process, please reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
From my perspective, they seem to be tone deaf to user’s wants and needs. That’s sad.
I rarely continue with a “take it or leave it” approach per their last reply to me. → (“We would absolutely LOVE you to continue to using Postman but we understand if that’s something that’s not going to work for you.”)
So many people moaning, you all seem to believe you’re entitled to something when in reality you’re using a FREE tool! …
I mean, seriously?? … You spent years using a FREE tool, didn’t back up your work?? and thought that at no point further down the line, the 3rd party company might want to change the way things work??
Even Insomnia have done exactly the same thing … why is this sort of decision such a surprise to people??
A business wants to trim costs by no longer developing a segregated tool that earns them NO money?? … SHOCKING!!
You mean non-paying users right?.. Do you really believe a company would continue to spend, who knows how much, developing a free tool FOREVER, when they had the opportunity to consolidate everything into one place, just because some free tier users say “I want”?
I was always taught, “Nothing good in life is free”… So best of luck to you all in finding an alternative that stays free to use forever!
I do not think it’s a matter of free or paid for, simply because many myself included asked for a paid for local option but it’s not even being considered.
They make enough money already to support everything they want IMHO the devs are just tired of supporting 2 different codebases.
Basically even if you pay enough when someone is already fat they will not do work they don’t like for you, so best looking for alternatives from people that are not that affirmed on the market and throw some more money their way.
