Session: Codeless Testing with POSTMAN
APIs are one of the limelight topics in recent years, everywhere we can hear this term. Even though APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) have existed ever since software existed, in recent years it has become a critical requirement for being able to scale and grow your Product. APIs allow pieces of code to bridge together as applications so they can work cohesively together.
API Testing has reached stardom nowadays. This process helps to ensure that performance, functionality, security, and reliability of software meet expectations - in other words, that the server (API) is able to serve several visitors simultaneously, return to the client, bring the exact response that was hit on the browser and so on. If this testing wasn’t performed then consequently, ineffective APIs can result in integration difficulties, poor software quality, user frustration, and revenue losses.
POSTMAN is an API development environment used by more than 7 million developers today. With POSTMAN you can design, mock, debug, test, document, monitor and publish APIs all at the same time. Postman is very convenient when it comes to executing APIs. Postman is preferred due to its handy and simplified features. Many would be familiar with POSTMAN testing essentials, but in recent times POSTMAN team has introduced a new codeless feature “Flows”, which is an API workflow builder. These days Codeless testing is more popular where the tester never has to write a single line of code, in similar lines "Flows" will help you to automate your API requests without any coding. Flows is basically a codeless approach to chaining processes together. It really opens up Postman to a whole new audience.
