Automate Your API Testing Process

Add to calendar

Creating automated tests for your team stories, integration, or regression test cycles within agile sprints is almost every tester’s top challenge. Usually it consumes many hours and requires a great deal of effort to achieve, especially in complex and large agile projects. Teams need to deliver software as quickly as they can while producing the best possible product quality. Talal Ibdah shows how you can achieve these goals and automate your API functional and performance tests; define test environments and configuration files; make chaining requests; continuously deliver your test scripts; and monitor uptime, performance, and correctness of your production APIs. He explores the use of Postman, Newman, GitHub, Jenkins, and Slack to achieve this. Join Talal to learn how his team automates and monitors their API tests faster than with manual testing using best practices.
