In Postman, what is a difference between Folder and Collection?

Experience Level: Junior
Tags: Postman Tools


  • The collection can contain folders and HTTP requests.
  • A folder is always stored in a collection or in another folder (folders can have subfolders)
  • A HTTP request always belongs to some collection, but if you have too many requests, it is helpful to organize them to a folder structure
  • The collections can be exported/imported and shared among the team members
