Postman, the world’s leading API Platform, today announced the general availability of Postman Flows, a visual tool for creating API applications. Postman Flows simplifies building software by using APIs as the building blocks, allowing anyone to produce workflows, integrations, and automations in a collaborative environment without needing to write a single line of code.
With Postman Flows, the company is leaning into demand for a low-code solution that lets people build software without extensive programming experience. Using tens of thousands of readily available APIs, business users can manipulate data with API calls and create workflows. This allows everyone, from financial analysts and customer service agents to senior business leaders, to devise solutions to problems they encounter every day.
“APIs are the building blocks of modern software. However, those blocks have not always been accessible to everyone,” said Abhinav Asthana, co-founder and CEO of Postman. “We are on a mission to change this. With more than 25 million users across every continent, we believe Postman can accomplish this at a massive scale so that any user, anywhere, can build and participate in today’s API-first world.”
Postman Flows makes it simple to construct API applications without needing to write code or fiddle with a command line. Inspired by the concept of “blocks” to form and visualize an application, users simply drag the blocks, build the application, and deploy the workflow. And Postman Flows leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to enable users to manipulate data returned by APIs by simply typing out what they want to do in natural language, making it easy for all. Hundreds of thousands of users have already built API applications using Postman Flows during its beta program.
“Postman Flows is the sweet spot for us, as it gives our non-technical team members a low-code tool to build, document, test, and implement an API workflow,” said Thomas Schlegel, distinguished engineer at Built Technologies. “We can accomplish tasks faster with fewer errors, and we look forward to maximizing these benefits across the organization.”
“Postman Flows makes prototyping and testing easy,” said Sid Verma, partner engineer at Notion. “Building connections visually is more intuitive and clear, which results in spending more time building and less time digging through code. I’m excited to see the future of Flows and Notion!”
Postman is the world’s leading API platform, used by more than 25 million developers and 500,000 organizations, including 98% of the Fortune 500. Postman is helping developers and professionals across the globe build the API-first world by simplifying each step of the API lifecycle and streamlining collaboration—enabling users to create better APIs, faster. The company is headquartered in San Francisco and has an office in Bangalore, where it was founded. Postman is privately held, with funding from Battery Ventures, BOND, Coatue, CRV, Insight Partners, and Nexus Venture Partners.

Fivetran | February 09, 2023
Fivetran, a world leader in automated data movement, has launched Fivetran Lite, a new offering that brings more SaaS connectors to market faster. The Lite connectors are backed by Fivetran's commitment to high quality, data integrity, and security, and they can be developed in a fraction of the time it takes to develop Fivetran's standard connectors.
The Lite connectors meet the increasing demand for managed connectors for a growing number of SaaS services. The By Request Program enables Fivetran to build new Lite connectors in as little as 30 days, and the company expects to introduce hundreds of new connectors over the next year, bringing the total number of fully-managed connectors to over 500.
Head of Product at Fivetran, Alexander Lovell, said, “Our customers, like all enterprises, are under enormous budgetary pressure and are looking for every available way to streamline their operations and cut infrastructure costs. Developing homegrown connectors and maintaining data pipelines is a heavy economic burden they do not need to take on.”
