postman-runtime

This is a low-level library used as the backbone for all Collection running & Request sending functionality, in the Postman App, and allied systems (Postman Monitoring, Newman)

If you are looking to execute collections, you should be using Newman, this is very low level.

Development Notes

  • npm run test: Runs lint, system, unit and integration tests of runtime
  • npm run test-integration-newman: This command runs tests of newman with the under-development variant of runtime
  • npm run test-coverage: This command runs postman-runtime tests and generate overall coverage
  • npm/memory-check.sh: This bash scripts performs first-level memory usage analysis, and plots a graph out of the results

Options

Postman Runtime supports a lot of options to customize its behavior for different environments and use-cases.

var runner = new runtime.Runner(); // runtime = require('postman-runtime');

// a collection object constructed using the Postman Collection SDK.
var collection = new sdk.Collection();

runner.run(collection, {
    // Iteration Data
    data: [],

    // Timeouts (in ms)
    timeout: {
        request: 30000,
        script: 5000
    },

    // Number of iterations
    iterationCount: 1,

    // Control flags (you can only specify one of these):

    // - gracefully halts on errors (errors in request scripts or while sending the request)
    //   calls the `item` and `iteration` callbacks and does not run any further items (requests)
    stopOnError: true,

    // - abruptly halts the run on errors, and directly calls the `done` callback
    abortOnError: true,

    // - gracefully halts on errors _or_ test failures.
    //   calls the `item` and `iteration` callbacks and does not run any further items (requests)
    stopOnFailure: true,

    // - abruptly halts the run on errors or test failures, and directly calls the `done` callback
    abortOnFailure: true,

    // Environment (a "VariableScope" from the SDK)
    environment: new sdk.VariableScope(),

    // Globals (a "VariableScope" from the SDK)
    globals: new sdk.VariableScope(),

    // Execute a folder/request using id/name or path
    entrypoint: {
        // execute a folder/request using id or name
        execute: 'folderName',
        // idOrName in case of execute and path in case of path
        // is chosen to specify the folder/request to be executed
        lookupStrategy: 'path',
        // execute a folder/request using a path
        path: ['grand_parent_folder_idOrName', 'parent_folder_idOrName']
    },

    // Configure delays (in ms)
    delay: {
        // between each request
        item: 1000,
        // between iterations
        iteration: 1000
    },

    // Used to fetch contents of files, certificates wherever needed
    fileResolver: require('fs'),

    // Options specific to the requester
    requester: {

        // An object compatible with the cookieJar provided by the 'postman-request' module
        cookieJar: jar,

        // Controls redirect behavior (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        followRedirects: true,

        // Redirect with the original HTTP method (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        followOriginalHttpMethod: false,

        // Maximum number of redirects to follow (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        maxRedirects: 10,

        // Removes the `referer` header when a redirect happens (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        removeRefererHeaderOnRedirect: false,

        // Enable or disable certificate verification (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        strictSSL: false,

        // Enable or disable detailed request-response timings (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        timings: true,

        // Implicitly add `Cache-Control` system header in request (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        implicitCacheControl: true,

        // Implicitly add `Postman-Token` system header in request (only supported on Node, ignored in the browser)
        implicitTraceHeader: true,

        // network related options
        network: {
            hostLookup: { // hosts file configuration for dns lookup
                type: 'hostIpMap',
                hostIpMap: {
                    'domain.com': '127.0.0.1',
                    'ipv6-domain.com': '::1',
                }
            },
            restrictedAddresses: {'192.168.1.1': true} // Allows restricting IP/host in requests
        }
    },

    // A ProxyConfigList, from the SDK
    proxies: new sdk.ProxyConfigList(),

    // A function that fetches the system proxy for a given URL.
    systemProxy: function (url, callback) { return callback(null, {/* ProxyConfig object */}) },

    // A CertificateList from the SDK
    certificates: new sdk.CertificateList(),

    // *note* Not implemented yet.
    // In the future, this will be used to read certificates from the OS keychain.
    systemCertificate: function() {}
}, function (err, run) {
    console.log('Created a new Run!');

    // Check the section below for detailed documentation on what callbacks should be.
    run.start(callbacks);
});

Callbacks

You can pass a series of callbacks for runtime to execute as a collection is being executed.

runner.run(collection, { /* options */ }, function(err, run) {
    run.start({
        // Called any time we see a new assertion in the test scripts
        assertion: function (cursor, assertions) {
