How do you link to a Postman collection from a Confluence page?

I created some API documentation in Confluence and would like to link to a Postman collection (already saved) so the audience can actively test the API examples. Can anyone advise me on the best way to do this? I notice that Atlasssian uses links to Postman for their API documentation.

I used to 1) export boht the collection and the environment and place the *.json files in a cloud drive, 2) added a 'file' as a link to my page:foo1.png

But if you go to: https://learning.getpostman.com/docs/postman_for_publishers/run_button/creating_run_button/ you can "embed" a dynamic button into a page.

After I copied that content, I added an HTML macrofoo2.png

I then pasted the contents of the HTML from Postman and now I get:

foo3.png

OK, seems like I need to create the link from Postman. They have simple instructions on how to embed the link (which is what I need to do for Confluence) which creates a button. I copied the generated code for the button in Postman using the markdown option, then in Confluence I used the markup macro and pasted the code. It works, creates a Run in Postman button for your collection, and when clicked users are given the option of opening Postman collection using Chrome browser or their OS. I believe it installs the Postman app if they don't already have it installed.

We tried this but its not working.

@Deanne Gittens Is the Postman collection a web page? If yes, i think you can use something like iframe to include it onto Confluence
