As you create new tests for your web app and push new features to production, you'll want to run your tests on a schedule to continuously validate your web services availability and data integrity. These new schedule features will help you improve your web service monitoring.
We've spent a lot of time gathering feedback and use-cases about different approaches to testing and monitoring web services. The more we learn about these use-cases, the more we're able to improve Assertible, and particularly Assertible's API monitoring features.
Today, we're excited to announce new features and updates to web service monitoring in Assertible.
Multiple monitoring schedules
One of the biggest use-cases we've seen is the need to run multiple schedules. Sometimes you want to run web service health checks more frequently than data validation tests. Assertible now supports this with multiple monitors.
Schedule tests against specific environments
Production isn't always the only environment you want to monitor. Many
teams have dedicated environments for
need to be available at all times. Further, issues that pop up on
staging environments over time can often indicate problems that may
eventually work their way to production.
Assertible now supports schedules that monitor any environment on your
web service. For example, if you have a
environment, you can set up a separate schedule for each.
Next steps to improve web service monitoring
This is the just the start. At Assertible, we know how critical it is to continuously test and monitor your web services. Downtime hits at unexpected times and our goal is to provide a tool anyone can use to improve their QA pipeline.
