API Testing Services

Make sure any APIs you use — whether third-party or your own — work as expected no matter what. With automation, API testing becomes an easy task that can be completed faster.  

What is API Testing?

  • API’s form a crucial link in today’s interconnected world of programs, apps, websites, and servers. An Application Program Interface (API), standardizes and streamlines the flow of “computer speak” information and enables IoT. “API plug-ins” simplify and shorten the development life-cycle, making a developer’s role more agile.
  • APIs are a ubiquitous component in almost every software developer’s toolbox and should be part of every QA Teams’ test plan and test process. Application programming interface testing sits between end-user black-box testing and developer white-box unit testing; focusing on the “Program Logic Layer”. API testing ensures that the interfaces in internal and external systems (often times 3rd party) satisfy requirements not only for functionality but also for performance and security.
  • Testing APIs assures that all the data being accessed is properly processed by the API, ensuring better security and compliance testing. Lastly, because API testing occurs prior to any black-box UI related testing, every API defect found may save up to 10 GUI defects later in the project! So, if you’re interested in getting ahead of the regression curve and incorporating API testing automation before the front end is polished off, contact us today.

OptimumBrew offers the following API/Web Services Testing:

01

Unit Testing

For checking the functionality of individual APIs.

02

Load Testing

For validation of functionality and performance for the system under various levels of user/ transaction load.

03

Security Testing

Involves various types of security checks like penetration testing, authentication, encryption, and access control.

04

Functional Testing

For testing end to end functionality of the API layer.

05

Runtime Error Detection

Execution of Automated / Manual tests to identify problems, such as exceptions and resource leaks.

06

Web UI Testing

End to end testing of the entire system using the APIs.

OptimumBrew API Testing methodology includes the following steps:

API Testing Methodology

Phase

01

  • Test plan with an appropriate strategy to deal with client’s needs including individual API testing, smoke testing and full regression testing.
  • Recommendations on most appropriate test environment configuration to accomplish testing manual methods or via automated testing.

Phase

02

  • Fully functioning Test Suites prioritized to client requirements.
  • Source code matching test cases, incorporated into the Test Suite with suites structured according to Phase 1.
  • Complete documentation, including source code and details on environment configurations and settings.

Phase

03

  • Root Cause Analysis, highlighting trends with potential causes and providing actionable recommendations.
  • Determination of current health of the application and identification of critical application problem areas.
  • Detailed failure report, including a complete set of test results in appropriate format (e.g., graph; tabulated data) for either further analysis or presentation to management.
