Postman is an API development tool that streamlines API building, testing, modification, and simplifies the process of working with APIs for developers. You can use a webhook in the Postman platform to forward change events to the Sumo Logic HTTP endpoint. Using these logs, you can monitor API test results, collection changes, monitor alerts, environment modifications, and custom automation workflow triggers in Sumo logic. For more details, refer to the Postman Documentation.

Event types

The Sumo Logic integration for Postman ingests Postman events into Sumo Logic through an outgoing webhook available in Postman. For more information on supported events that are ingested through the Postman webhook, see the Postman Documentation.
