Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are the next frontier of software development, the pillar on which modern architecture of cloud services and mobile rest, enabling exchange of data between two systems. Their performance, functionality, and security are as critical and need to be tested as comprehensively.
Indium assesses and validates the quality of API by verifying the code and finding defects using its unique, process-oriented approach to testing gained from almost two decades of experience. Our experience in API testing includes working with:
Big Data Engineering
GAIN THE INDIUM ADVANTAGE!
Poorly designed APIs can be vulnerable to malicious attacks. Therefore, Indium Security testing includes:
– Testing the security of APIs carrying sensitive data
– Checking the authentication and data encryption over HTTP for any security threats
– Adding security scans to the existing functional tests to help achieve the task.
Check the performance and scalability of the APIs through rigorous testing.
Create and execute REST APIs, and automate the process to reduce the complexity.
Coverage testing primarily include the following:
– Measure the SOAP or REST web service covered by client’s Mock Services, Mock Clients and Functional tests.
– Test the functions and source lines during unit test runs.
Indium overcomes the challenges faced during test coverage in API such as API call sequencing, schema updates, request data combination and parameter combination.
Test the robustness of the system under non-standard circumstances such as stressful environments and exceptional conditions, simulating all possible scenarios in which a system could crash. Determine the robustness of server-side and client-side. Make repeated API calls and measure the response times.
Indium ensures the best value for investment by implementing the following best practices:
Automated API Validation Testing facilitates DevOps practice, the preferred mode of software development for quicker time to market. Some of the top API Validation testing tools which we use for our clients include:
