You don't need to know how to code to be an API testing hero.
Testing the logic tier of your application doesn’t need to be rocket science. API testing lets you create verifications against all common API requests with point-and-click ease. Not sure how to get started? Fire up the built-in demo application for useful cues on how to build meaningful verifications.
Easily test REST protocol to ensure APIs return the right data. Verify that the format and content of your API calls is what you expected. Use conditions to craft flexible verifications and build smart, non-brittle tests: get the test executed even if a step fails or go back to executing the previous step upon failure.
Solving hard to automate UI test scenarios sometimes requires making an API call to a web service. Running API calls while crafting functional web or WPF tests might improve these significantly. Typical scenarios that require utilizing API calls are:
Test Studio supports using API calls within functional UI tests through API test as step. Simply create API tests or reuse existing API tests as steps in a web or WPF test.
API Testing will help you create smart tests for your APIs. Use variables to extract values that can be easily added as a step later in the test. Set variables for dynamic values to test a wider range of conditions and truly simulate real life user scenarios.
Along with validating your APIs function as expected you can also test if API calls get completed within a certain response time to ensure the API layer meets the business requirements.
Test Studio for APIs adds support for Fiddler. Export your Fiddler recorded traffic into a SAZ file and easily upload it to Test Studio. You can now create a Test Studio API test from these Fiddler traffic logs or plug them into an existing API test.
Don’t just check the health of your APIs once in a while. Hook your API tests to your build system and leverage the built-in API test runner. Get your API test lists scheduled to start running whenever you want. This way you’ll be able to execute API tests as part of your build process and CI environment.
