Supporting collaboration between developers and testers, Parasoft SOAtest enables teams to test APIs automatically for quality, safety, reliability, and security. Teams can extend easy-to-maintain tests to increase coverage and repurpose them for nonfunctional testing like load, performance, and security.

How It Works

Developers and testers can leverage SOAtest’s AI to analyze traffic patterns and create test scenarios that make the API calls represented by that traffic. It’s easy to maintain the created tests and reuse them for load, performance, and API security. 

Here’s how teams can put our API testing solutions to work:

  1. Use the SOAtest Smart API Test Generator to automatically convert recorded traffic captured through proxies or from actions on a web UI into maintainable, scalable, and automated API tests that fit into DevOps workflows. 
  2. Test fast and effectively. Determine exactly which tests need to be executed to validate changes and fixes with AI-augmented test impact analysis.
  3. Manage and create simulations of unstable or unavailable dependencies and generate virtual test data that complies with privacy regulations to test at any time without delays.
