API testing can be one of the most challenging parts of software and QA testing because APIs can be complicated, they are often based on protocols and standards that we often do no encounter in other kinds of testing. While developers tend to test only the basic functionality they are working on, testers are in charge of testing functionality, performance and security of APIs, discovering how all components work together from end to end.
APIs are what gives value to an application. It’s what makes our phones “smart”, and it’s what streamlines business processes. If an API doesn’t work efficiently and effectively, it will never be adopted, regardless if it is a free or not. Also, if an API breaks because errors weren’t detected, there is the threat of not only breaking a single application, but an entire chain of business processes hinged to it
Our API Testing Services
API Documentation Testing
Types of API’s we Test
- Get- To get the information. For example getting longitude and latitude in case of location mapping API.
- Post- To insert some data in resource.
- Put- To update the resource.
- Delete- To delete from resource.
Our Approach for API Testing
Test for the typical or expected results first
Add stress to the system through a series of API load tests
Test for failure. Make sure you understand how your API will fail. Just make sure the API fails consistently and gracefully
Group test cases by test category
Prioritize API function calls so that it will be easy for testers to test quickly and easily
Limit the tests from as many variables as possible by keeping it as isolated as possible
See how it handles unforeseen problems and loads by throwing as much as you can at it
Perform well-planned call sequencing
For complete test coverage, create test cases for all possible API input combinations
Automate wherever we can
