Postman collection

Sophos Firewall offers a Postman collection with preconfigured payloads for its API.

You can import the collection to Postman and use it. See Postman collection for Sophos Firewall.

Do as follows:

  1. In the firewall, check if you've turned on API and allowed access to API administrators. See API.
  2. Install the latest Postman application on your endpoint.
  3. Click Import and paste the following URL:
