How to use single auth method for every request in a Postman collection

If you are just like me tired of messing with authorization header for every request in a collection then you’re welcome for a very helpful solution.

Solution

All you have to do is:

  • Click edit on a collection;
  • Navigate to ‘authorization’ tab;
  • Choose and set up an authorization type, that will be used for every request in this collection;

postman-collection-authorization-tab

Once it’s done, you need to ensure that an authorization type of every request is set to Inherit auth from parent:

postman-collection-authorization-tab

If everything has been done properly, you won’t have that problem again.
