One of the great features of Postman is that it is really easy to integrate it with CI/CD tools like Travis CI, Jenkins, etc… In this post, we will take a look at how to run Postman tests on Travis CI.

Initial Setup

To get the tests running on Travis CI, you’ll need to do some initial setup –

  • Create a GitHub Repository and push collection and environment-related files to GitHub
  • Connect your GitHub repository with TravisCI Creating .travis.yml file Once GitHub and Travis is connected, you can focus on creating the Travis configuration file which will look something like this –
language: node_js
  - '14.4.0'
  - npm install newman
  - node_modules/.bin/newman run tests/Trello.postman_collection.json -e tests/Production.postman_environment.json
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Once you push this file to GitHub, Travis will pick up the configuration file and start building your project and run all your tests in your collection.
