While most firms still hold on to Agile practices, in order to support the rapid release schedules in Continuous Delivery/DevOps development method, Automated Testing must shift from a GUI extensive approach to a User Interface-and-Application Programming Interface (UI and API) approach.

Unlike GUI testing or UI testing, API testing can be started much earlier in the development process. API tests run much faster and are more stable than GUI tests. Executing API tests early in the software development life cycle can provide quick feedback on application quality.

To reap the full benefits of API testing, testers need to go beyond typical record-and-playback testing. More advanced practices—such as coding tests, mocking/stubbing unavailable services, leveraging Docker containers, and running API tests in CI/CD pipelines—ensure you’ll make the most out of API Testing.

LogiGear’s API Testing Services

Our API testing services cover the following:
Micro Services: Web API, REST API, SOAP UI, JSON/XML, HTTP/HTTPs, Basic Auth/ OAuth, API calls,
API functional testing, data testing, interoperability testing, and load testing
API test case scripting and services mocking
API testing in CI/CD/DevOps environment and cloud environments
API testing tools/frameworks evaluation, selection, and customization
Public API testing: developer experience testing and documentation testing

LogiGear‘s solution includes proprietary and open source tools, as well as Test Automation professionals that work intimately with our clients to understand their specific pain-points, and then create a tailored Automation solution that can provide outstanding ROI.

API Testing Strategy
Through a Proof of Concept (POC), LogiGear consultants will audit your existing testing process, test suites, and test execution infrastructure to establish a roadmap for implementing and scaling API testing.
Tools and Frameworks
Our Automation experts can work with your preferred API testing tools, our prebuilt frameworks, or we can help you select and customize the testing tool of your choice to fit your needs.
Specialized API Testing Experts
Our technical testers have extensive experience working with leading testing tools (both open source and proprietary) including our own TestArchitect, as well as Postman, SOAP UI, MicroFocus UFT, and from other vendors, as well as popular open-source testing tool options like Selenium, Appium and Protractor. We also have engineering capacity to extend those tools beyond its existing capabilities to address your unique Automation issues.
Recommend Automation Best Practices
Our consultants recommend and help implement the best practices to test Apis. This includes increasing productivity, reducing post-production issues, creation of reusable artifacts, and improving your testing suites. This is achieved by setting up effective communication processes, creating or enhancing existing artifacts for future use, and creating a knowledge repository for cross-functional training.
Test Execution
We can help you automate your regression tests using VMs, Docker containers, or cloud services. We recommend executing API tests as part of the CI/CD pipeline to provide quick feedback on software quality.
Scalability and Maintainability
Our experience has shown that test design is the single most important factor in building a scalable and maintainable Automaton program. We employ test design best practices to ensure the optimal reusability & maintainability across business units’ projects.
Maintenance and Support
We can work with your in-house team to maintain the API test suites on an as-need basis, or provide best practices to let this happen in house.
