#20 How To Import Swagger in Postman for API Testing

To import Swagger into Postman, follow these steps:

  1. Open Postman: Launch the Postman application on your computer.
  2. Create a new request: Click on the “New” button in the top-left corner of the Postman window to create a new request.
  3. Import Swagger file: In the new request tab, click on the “Import” button located next to the “Save” button.
  4. Choose the Swagger file: Select the option to import a file and browse your computer to locate the Swagger file (usually in JSON or YAML format). Click “Open” to select the file.
  5. Import the Swagger collection: Postman will analyze the Swagger file and convert it into a Postman collection. Review the details and settings for the imported collection.
  6. Customize the collection (optional): You can modify the imported collection’s name, description, and settings if needed.
  7. Import complete: Click on the “Import” button to import the Swagger collection into Postman. Once the import is complete, the collection will appear in the left sidebar under the “Collections” tab.
  8. Access Swagger endpoints: Expand the imported collection in the sidebar to view the individual API endpoints defined in the Swagger file.

You can now use the imported Swagger collection in Postman to send requests, test APIs, and manage your API workflow.
