Hello Community 🙂

I'm looking for importing Postman Collection into HTTP Monitor.

Is there any way or tool to automate this ?

Maybe converting Postman Collection in HTTP monitor script ?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @JeanBlanc you can do some scripting or pre/post executions scripts in HTTP Monitors

May be is an approach for your goal.

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

Hi @JeanBlanc ,

I do not have idea for converting postman collection to http monitor.

But you can use to import http monitors via simple API calls or Monaco (also API calls, gitops way).

I would suggest to create manually one http monitor in DT and then donwload it with Monaco. Then you can use it as a template. In my case there were three http and one browser monitor in a test environment.

If you created your http monitoring collections based on the tempalate you can delpoy it with Monaco. From a test system I downloaded a sample collection of http monitors. In these test monitors I used different frequency, locations and simple gets.  

I hope it helps.

I don't think there is anything yet. 

Shouldn't be to hard to write a small script that converts an exported postman collection into one/multiple HTTP monitors you can import via API though.
