Initial value & Current value
Variable in Environment contains Initial value and Current value,Initial value is shared with your team,but Current value only store in your local. Request will finally use Current value.
Restful Fast Request in fact sync the Initial value of Environment.
So, if the environment values are updated in the plugin and sync successfully to Postman, when executing a request, Postman will not immediately use the synchronized values. Instead, you will need to manually replace the values in the environment tab or perform a complete replacement by clicking on "Reset All".
Pre and Post script
Due to language differences, the plugin does not synchronize pre-request and post-request scripts. Therefore, when using the plugin, it is recommended to write common scripts in the project-level config. This way, after synchronizing with Postman, you only need to write pre-request and post-request scripts at the collection level in Postman.
