Laravel API to Postman

This package allows you to automatically generate a Postman collection based on your API routes. It also provides basic configuration and support for bearer auth tokens and basic auth for routes behind an auth middleware.

For POST and PUT requests that utilizes a FormRequest, you can optionally scaffold the request, and publish rules in raw or human readable format.

Postman Schema

The generator works for the latest version of the Postman Schema at the time of publication (v2.1.0).


Install the package:

composer require andreaselia/laravel-api-to-postman

Publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AndreasElia\PostmanGenerator\PostmanGeneratorServiceProvider" --tag="postman-config"


You can modify any of the api-postman.php config values to suit your export requirements.

The output of the command being ran is your storage/app directory.

To use the command simply run:

php artisan export:postman

The following usage will generate routes with the bearer token specified.

php artisan export:postman --bearer="1|XXNKXXqJjfzG8XXSvXX1Q4pxxnkXmp8tT8TXXKXX"

The following usage will generate routes with the basic auth specified.

php artisan export:postman --basic="username:password123"

If both auths are specified, bearer will be favored.


This is with the default configuration and a bearer token passed in:

php artisan export:postman --bearer=123456789
