In this article, we will show you how to install Postman in CentOS and Redhat systems.
Postman is an API platform for building and using APIs. Postman simplifies each step of the API lifecycle and streamlines collaboration so you can create better APIs—faster. So, this app is basically used for creating, testing, and managing the APIs(Application Programming Interface).
The Postman API Platform delivers high productivity for developers, great quality for APIs, and airtight governance for organizations across the world.
So, Just follow the steps below to install Postman:
- Update your system packages by running the following:
yum update -y && yum upgrade -y
- By default, Postman is not available on Redhat or CentOS or even Rocky Linux base repositories. So we can download and install it using snap manager.
Snap is a software packaging and deployment system developed by Canonical for operating systems that use the Linux kernel. The packages, called snaps, and the tool for using them, snapd, work across a range of Linux distributions and allow upstream software developers to distribute their applications directly to users. Snaps are self-contained applications running in a sandbox with mediated access to the host system.
Snaps applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
- Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions, So install snap then install Postman via snap manager as shown below
sudo yum update sudo yum install snapd sudo snap install postman
- Once installed, you will get that it has been installed as shown below.
- Access Postman through the command line by running the command
- Postman will be launched as shown below
- Then, you can create a new account or just skip and go to the APP as follows.
That’s it, I hope that was useful.
