Import Postman Collection

Hello there,

 

We are having issues with the 'Import Postman Collection' functionality in SoapUI Pro.  After importing the V1 postman collection with no issues, we get a URISyntaxException when executing any of the imported requests.  It sort of looks like the application is not properly doing property expansion when it imports the postman collection.  For example if you have 'http://{{host_property}}' defined in your postman request URL, the app does not do a property expansion substitution as stated in the docs: https://www.soapui.org/docs/postman-collections.html.

 

We also tried this in SoapUI community edition and ReadyApi version as well.  We suspect the same issue, even though we get a different error message. (e.g.SoapUI community edition gives null pointer exception).

 

Please let us know if there is any work around/solution.

 

thank you.

Re: Import Postman Collection

works like a charm boss.  I was able to load the jar with the plugin manager on readyAPI and successfully import the postman collection.  Thank you.  

 

FYI: i went ahead and tested this with the community version as well, by manually replacing the default postman plugin jar with the one u sent.  Result: 'import from postman' menu option does not show up.

Re: Import Postman Collection

I am glad that the plugin worked for you. I can only guarantee the fix would work for ReadyAPI since that is what we actively support.

 

SoapUI Open Source is supported by open source initiatives.

 

Please make sure to mark this post with the solution so that other users can see it as well. 

 

Have a great day!

Re: Import Postman Collection

sorry about that.  Thought I accepted it.

 

one more ReadyApi issue i did notice over the weekend: the import functionality only imports the requests.  Which is ok if you are only doing simple collections.  However,  If you have tests associated with the collection, ReadyAPI tries to create testcases for them, but ends up creating empty testcases.  Instead of testcases with respective assertions per the conversion rules.

Re: Import Postman Collection

Hi,

 

the previous post before yours was during September last year.

 

I installed the plugin today into my ReadyAPI! and the version installed was v1.2.0 - rather than what was attached earlier in the post (which was an earlier version).

 

Cheers,
