API Testing Tool

Automate Codeless API Testing With Parasoft SOAtest

Fulfill your API testing needs, from simple to complex, all without scripting.

Parasoft SOAtest Is the Leading Enterprise API Testing Tool

Select the industry-leading, one-stop shop for your complete functional testing needs, from REST & SOAP APIs and web services, to microservices, databases, and more. Parasoft SOAtest automates API testing by providing advanced test creation capabilities that leverage AI and machine learning to process service definitions and recorded traffic, produce maintainable and reusable test assets, and enable continuous functional and load testing.

How Does It Work?

Parasoft SOAtest’s API testing solution is widely recognized as best-in-class, with innovative tooling and broad support for over 120 message formats and protocols. With visual drag-and-drop tooling, users can create the most complex test scenarios without having to write a single line of code because things like test flow logic, complex assertions, looping, data driving, and keyword association, such as BDD with Cucumber, can all be easily built with minimal technical experience.

Leverage your manual testing to create scriptless, automated RESTful API tests

Creating RESTful API tests has never been easier. SOAtest’s integrated SMART API Test Generator analyzes API traffic from a source such as the Parasoft Recorder plugin for Chrome and converts the behind-the-scenes API behavior into meaningful API test scenarios. To go beyond simple record and playback, SOAtest applies artificial intelligence to understand and extract the correlation between API requests and responses, building reusable, dynamic, extendable, and impactful tests. These tests are displayed in the Parasoft SOAtest tool’s Test Case Explorer window as scriptless automated API tests, where they can be reviewed and edited.

But it doesn’t just stop at API interfaces. SOAtest is a complete omni-channel testing solution that can also test systems like databases, ESBs, mainframes, and mobile devices, with integrations for your existing software development ecosystem, including test frameworks (such as Cucumber, BDD, TDD, Selenium, and Appium) and CI infrastructures, all within the same user interface.

Users can comfortably traverse complete end-to-end test scenarios right within one test case inside SOAtest, to comprehensively validate the complete user experience. All tests created in SOAtest can then be leveraged for reuse to be run as security and performance tests, to efficiently validate nonfunctional requirements for early-stage testing.

Acceleration to support true continuous testing

On top of all of this is rich support for continuous testing. Through SOAtest’s tight integration with existing CI/CD systems (i.e. Jenkins, TeamCity, Bamboo, Azure DevOps) and Parasoft’s virtualization tool, tests can be executed on demand to accelerate the feedback process required from agile development methodologies. Results from testing provide meaningful and actionable tasks in SOAtest’s rich and dynamic reporting system that can take the form of a simple PDF report to a dynamic multilevel HTML document outlining which tests were executed, what the status was, and to which requirements they were associated, allowing multiple stakeholders to understand the health of their critical applications.

Parasoft DTP’s centralized reporting and analytics dashboard correlates functional and nonfunctional test results with the underlying API and code coverage, so stakeholders can pinpoint risky functionality that needs to be tested, with a holistic view of the entire software development process.


Benefit From the Parasoft Approach

Achieve High Levels of Test Automation Leveraging AI and Machine Learning

Many organizations struggle to achieve high levels of API test automation. Comprehensive test coverage of the APIs requires not only knowledge of how the API is designed but also how it is used. SOAtest’s Smart API Test Generator captures the interactions of your application with the underlying APIs and applies AI and machine learning heuristics to identify patterns and relationships in the data to automatically construct real API test scenarios.

Make Continuous Testing a Reality

Continuous testing isn’t just about having automated tests — the tests also need to be executed continuously and provide continuous feedback into your software delivery pipeline. With powerful CI/CD plugins and the ability to reuse API tests for load and performance testing while tightly integrating with service virtualization, Parasoft enables continuous testing to become a reality so your test automation can run anytime, anywhere.

Easily Manage API Change

APIs change, and with the adoption of microservices, these changes become even more frequent. When change happens, you need a way to efficiently update your test suites to bring them into alignment. Parasoft SOAtest’s Change Advisor streamlines this process, reducing the burden of maintaining and refactoring your test suites.
