Updated Postman, some cool new features and one I discovered on accident...

With all of the features coming to Postman over the last few months, I ran into something kind of cool. While testing an API endpoint, I could not for the life of me figure out why an endpoint wasn’t connecting. The person I was testing with didn’t tell me that they has just renewed the SSL cert on their domain, so I got the “Could not get any response” error message. Now had I read a bit closer, or gone to their Troubleshooting page I would have seen:

https://www.getpostman.com/docs/v6/postman/sending_api_requests/troubleshooting_api_requests

I could have asked them if they had recently renewed a lapsed cert, but reading directions is not my strong suit. To save other folks the hassle of trying other tools and working backwards, use the KISS methodology and ask the right questions.
