the followed the instructions i linked which were for soapui not readyapi!
see the following link - it all says soapui not readyapi!
you can download the plugin using the link embedded in the next page - https://www.soapui.org/extension-plugins/install/
Sorry - all the pages I was searching on I was searching for soapui - NOT readyAPI! - the following page says the postman plugin works for SoapUI v5.3 above
however - Ive seen conflicting info on stackoverflow suggesting it doesn't work for soapui any longer.
You could download the trial version of ReadyAPI!, download and install the postman plugin, import the collection, save the new project (which converts the collection file into the project .xml) and then you can then open the project (that was generated from the postman collection) in SoapUI.
I wouldn't normally advocate avoidance of licensing - but it looks like the postman plugin used to work for soapui and they just stopped the support....and its not like youd be going beyond the trial
one thing though - before trying to use the postman plugin read all the details of its requirements to ensure your postman collection doesnt contain 'stuff' that the plugin wont import. i played with the plugin about 3 years ago and the plugin wouldnt work with various conditions (it wouldn't import any parameterized attribute etc.) and in the end I just dropped it and just created the endpoints manually in ReadyAPI! instead. The plugin just didnt support importing all the setup and config you can do in a postman collection. that was a number of years ago and things may have changed - but its something worth thinking about before going to all that effort for no reason.
Don't know about soapui 5.4.0
but it is there in soapui 5.5.0, in File -> Import Postman Collection
