Solution to Postman Collection Created as Read only

I just tried to create a Postman Collection and I wasn’t able to add any requests to it because it was created as read only.

I did a bunch of Googling and Githubbing to no avail.

I happened to go to my accounts profile page and noticed this at the top. A message that my email address had not been verified.

I had a hunch that the collections were being created as read only because I was using a non-verified account.

I verified the email address.

I created a new collection…and boom it wasn’t read only.

So, if you create a collection and it is read-only, then make sure your profile is activated.

I filed a bug with Postman here:
