With more teams using continuous integration and delivery to automate builds and deployments, being able to also automate quality assurance tests for an API or web app is a natural next step. In this post we'll describe how to integrate Assertible with a TeamCity build to improve the quality of your software.
This post contains the slides and resources used in a talk given at Index Developer Conference about High Level Lessons Learned in Automated API/application testing within continuous integration and delivery pipelines.
Testing and validating JSON APIs is an important aspect of running a quality web service, but managing checks for large and diverse response bodies can be difficult. Using JSON Schema to construct a model of your API response makes it easier to validate your API is returning the data is should.
Performance testing is an important aspect of running an API or web application, but where do you start? This post will go over the basics of performance testing, present best practices, and provide tools to get started.
Can your API be hacked? APIs are more commonly than ever being used to send sensitive data between clients. These guidelines will give you a starting point to testing your services for security vulnerabilites.
Testing and monitoring web services in production (TiP and MiP) helps software and testing teams improve overall quality and gain a better understanding of how systems behave with real users and requests. These are few reasons why you should be testing and monitoring in production.
Behind every great API is a reliable uptime monitoring system. In today's internet world filled with SaaS apps, there are many monitoring tools to choose from. In this post I'll outline some tips to help you determine what and how to monitor your API. Using these tips can help you build out API monitoring automation that works well for your needs.
Assertible and Postman are both great tools that with many benefits for testing and monitoring APIs. In this post, I'll illustrate a few important advantages that make Assertible a great choice for teams looking to choose an automated testing tool.
In this post I will outline why Assertible is a good fit for teams to test APIs and illustrate precisely how Assertible improves on features that both Assertible and Runscope offer.
In this post I'll illustrate how to run API integration tests during a CI build as part of a continuous testing strategy. The goal is to validate that the API or web application performs as expected under production-like circumstances. This strategy can be used to verify an app's functionality before a deployment or other parts of a continuous delivery processes.
AWS's API Gateway is a great tool that makes it easy for developers to create and publish an API. In this post, I'll show you how to set up automated API testing and monitoring for all of your endpoints.
In this post I'll describe how to automate API tests defined in a Postman Collection from a continuous integration or delivery pipeline using Assertible.
Testing your API or web app after deploying from a CI pipeline helps catch bugs earlier and faster in the development process. This post explains how you can test your API from a Jenkins build step using Assertible.
Learn how to run post deploy smoke tests against your API or website from any Codeship pipeline.
In this post, I will illustrate 3 simple examples for testing an HTML website using Assertible. The examples described in this post are perfect for continuously smoke-testing your site from a continuous integration pipeline or deploy script.
With the Zapier integration for Assertible, you can automatically open an issue on any GitHub repository when API tests are failing. This post will show you how to set it up.
This post illustrates 3 simple examples for testing a JSON API using Assertible. These examples assume you have an Assertible account and a test created.
How to continuously test an API using a Swagger / OpenAPI definition from a continuous integration or delivery pipeline.
In an ideal world, every continuous delivery pipeline would incorporate automated functional testing. Even if you are not automating deployments directly to production, there are several distinct advantages to automatically running integration, acceptance, and end-to-end tests against every release of your application immediately after it's deployed.
