Achieve software reliability and security with API testing.
API testing is an integral part of API development and is considered to be one of the most challenging types of software testing. When performing REST API testing, it is not enough to know that clicking a button will send a request to the server. It is important to understand the parts of a REST request, to know how to create, formulate, and send requests without relying on the UI, also to realize what to expect as a response when sending a test request to make sure the API is functioning correctly.
Furthermore, there is also a number of points that should be considered: the accuracy of data, schema validation, data type, validations, order and completeness, HTTP status codes, authorization checks, and error codes API returns.
API testing requires a professional approach because of the complexity of APIs, which are often based on rarely encountered standards and protocols. QAwerk API quality assurance testing company helps businesses launch high-quality products by ensuring the integrated APIs meet the industry standards in terms of functionality, reliability, performance, and security.
Basically, API stands for application programming interface and allows us to connect and exchange data between separate program modules. API software has functions, classes, or subprograms by which one software can interact with other software. During API testing, it is essential to make sure it works correctly and fulfills its purpose across different devices, browsers, and operating systems; it can handle the expected load, and also to find all threats and vulnerabilities that can cause app hacking.
API Testing Types
API Performance Testing
API performance testing includes functional and load tests aimed to see whether API returns the desired output for a given input and determine the overall system performance under specific conditions. If you are looking for great professionals to conduct such tests, QAwerk team is here to help you.
API Automation Testing
API level testing automation means creating scripts, programs or setting up applications that can test API on a regular basis. It is a major key to perform the testing faster but requires strong technical skills. Only an experienced QA engineer can correctly automate API testing, and we have such experts in our big team.
API Security Testing
Every API should meet security requirements including authentication, permissions, and access controls that should always be safe. Even a single error in API security is more critical than in an individual app, as it affects every software that relies on that API so it can cause serious problems. Rest assured, our testing services are aimed at preventing this.
API Integration Testing
API integration tests simplify testing and make it possible to identify most errors already at the development stage. The goal of integration API testing is to verify that it meets expectations for functionality, reliability, performance, and security. QAwerk software testers are ready to ensure the perfect API testing process of your software.
Why is API Testing Important?
Our team of qualified QA engineers keeps up with the latest innovations, the best API testing tools, follows desktop, mobile, and web API testing best solutions. We apply modern testing tools and methods to guarantee that your software works flawlessly.
We know how to test API on the high level, as well as provide API documentation writing services. Our team can compose an accurate reference manual with the details on functions, classes, return types, arguments, examples, and tutorials on how to effectively use and integrate with an API of your software.
API Testing Benefits
Time and Cost Effective
API testing takes as far less time than functional testing and is easier to maintain. Also, API test automation requires less code and accelerate development workflows, thus reduced overall testing cost.
API testing allows to access the application without a user interface, so through the core access. In the case of working with the outsourcing team, it makes possible app testing in parallel with development.
API testing helps eliminate vulnerabilities since it requires certain conditions and inputs that protect the app from attacks. By sending more effort on testing API of your software, first of all, you guarantee your safety.
QAwerk’s efforts enabled internal developers to eliminate bugs and improve the app’s stability. Communicative and accommodating, the team proved capable of identifying technical errors.
We've worked with QAwerk to handle the QA of our native desktop app. They've done a tremendous job and even went out of their way to ensure the quality of the app. We'll continue working with them in the future.
