Salesforce APIs are the most forked and popular APIs in the Postman ecosystem. Taking the legacy a step further, we are pleased to introduce a brand new MuleSoft Anypoint Platform APIs collection for Postman. This new collection was released in July 2023, deprecating the older versions of MuleSoft Postman APIs.

To access these APIs, you will need:

  • MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform:  To access the Anypoint Platform APIs, you need to have an Anypoint Platform account. You can sign up for a free trial account.
  • Postman: To use the collection, you’ll need a Postman account. Sign up for a free account and download the Postman desktop app or use the web version.
