Support for Postman API Key Authentication and Disabled Request Body Added

· One min read

Postman recently introduced API Key authentication in its latest app and corresponding Postman Collection versions. API Transformer and other APIMatic products now support this feature for all import/export purposes. In addition to this, we now also handle disabled request bodies (another new feature introduced by Postman) when importing Collection files.


New Authentication Type: API Key

Postman recently introduced API Key authentication in its latest app. This addition was also reflected in all Postman Collection versions 1.0, 2.0 and 2.1. More details about the changes can be viewed in the Postman Release Notes. An API key is generally defined by specifying:

  1. API key name
  2. API key value
  3. API key location (query/header)

Our Postman Collection parsers for versions 1.0, 2.0 and 2.1 now support this authentication type for all import/export purposes. Hence, any conversions made on API Transformer or imports on the Dashboard will reflect these changes.

Disable Request Body

Postman now allows its users to disable request body in which case a null body will be sent. Our parsers will ignore any disabled request body params during import from Postman Collection files.
