A Proven Strategy for Higher Test Coverage with API Testing

A complete API testing practice has significant benefits, including easier test automation, reduced time between defect discovery and remediation, and faster feedback about the quality of your application from the CI/CD pipeline.

But most organizations are still struggling with low levels of API test coverage, with the #1 reason for this being the perception that in order to efficiently create the required libraries of test suites necessary for a complete, scalable API testing practice, there is a requirement for a highly specialized set of skills.

As a recognized leader in API testing, Parasoft has helped many enterprise organizations roll out successful and scalable API testing practices.

In this webinar, we share the strategies used at many of these organizations to rapidly build API test suites and achieve high levels of test coverage.

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • A “bottom-up” approach that starts with using your service definitions to create test cases for how your APIs are designed.
  • A “top-down” approach that leverages both your manual and automated UI interactions to automatically create your API tests for how the APIs are used.
  • How to visualize and quantify your API test coverage to ensure you are covering all the use-cases.
