Build a Solid API Testing Strategy to Enable Continuous Testing

Businesses are prioritizing customer experience as part of their go-to-market strategy, knowing that applications that suffer from bad behavior can negatively impact their brand’s reputation. To ensure a positive experience that meets consumer demand, teams have to finally go beyond the GUI layer and embed a comprehensive API testing strategy, to dissect an application to its core and test the end-to-end user journey. 

In this webinar, we show you how to integrate API testing as the first step of your continuous testing strategy. You’ll learn the key techniques to shift-left your API testing practice and create broad coverage of your application at the earliest stage possible. Then, we demonstrate how to leverage modern technologies like AI and service virtualization, to move you faster towards the path of continuous testing. 

Key takeaways:

  • How to simplify and set up your API test automation with test creation and validation
  • Bridging the gap between the UI and the API layers, leveraging AI to understand the underlying business logic that aligns API testing with user experience 
  • Why and when to bring in service virtualization as a key enabler for continuous testing
