Title: API Automation - scenarios to consider
Abstract: UI automation is pretty popular and offers valuable feedback on the quality of software. In addition to doing UI automation, it is of great value that you also automate your API tests. API automation provides faster feedback and a wide test coverage of key areas. When testing api’s we normally ensure that the API does what it should, by returning the correct status and messages. In addition to that there are several other scenarios that should be considered. We should also spend time on doing negative tests to ensure that our APIs handle errors appropriately, follow the specified schema, and don't reveal data that it shouldn’t or have certain security gaps. In this talk I will go through test scenarios that are important to consider when performing automated tests for API’s.
1. Understand API's
2. Positive and Negative scenarios to automate on API's
3. Tools and Techniques to test APIs
This session would be relevant for Testers.
