The Postman web app can be accessed on GSIBs that allows Secure Internet Surfing.

What data can Postman handle?

Difference between the Web App and Programmatic APIs

Web App: Users can access Postman by going to https://postman.gov.sg. The web app has a user interface that allows users to send templated messages via campaigns.

Programmatic APIs: Users who manage their own systems could also call our APIs to send messages programmatically. In order to use this feature, you need to generate an API key from Settings in the Postman web app. You can find more by going to our sms API guide/emailAPI guide here.
