I think the good idea is to have the tests in your repository.
Is there a way to place insomnia/postman configurations in our own repos?
It's not a problem to open another program to me.

Hi @cirelli94 , yes you can. You could export your Postman calls into a json config file and store it into your repository. But, each time you make an update into Postman, unfortunately, you have to re-export file. You can't just open your versioned json config file into Postman, make your updates, and just make Ctrl+S, it doesn't work, because Postman save it into the Postman application directory.

Mm maybe insomnia?
The problem is that in an office you can't impose a IDE, my coworker would kill me 😆

I understand ^

Don't know about Insomia, as VS Code fit our needs based on our stack, it's for us the best IDE in term of IDE and save a lot of time (versionning, unit tests, integration tests, lint etc..) :)

Why can you impose Insomnia or Postman, but not VSCode?

VS Code is pretty perfect for our stack, so actually, if I would change my IDE, I still did not find better. About Postam, Insomnia, I do not impose it to my team, but if I want, in repositories, everyone can share API Calls, REST Client is perfect and free.
