Traditionally, conventional networks had to defend just popular ports such as 80 (HTTP) and 443. (HTTPS). Today's online apps have several API endpoints that employ various protocols. As APIs tend to expand over time, even one API might make security problematic.
Most service or microservice APIs are accessed using mobile applications and other services. Web security technologies cannot employ browser verification since these clients do not use a browser. It is sometimes tricky to exclude artificial traffic from API endpoints in solutions that rely on browser verification to detect dangerous bots.
APIs snowball in a DevOps context, and most WAFs (Web Application Firewalls) cannot support this flexibility. Traditional security tools require manual tweaking and reconfiguration every time an API changes, which is an error-prone procedure that costs resources and time.
Mindfire provides developers and testers with automated tools and frameworks to validate and verify user interfaces, APIs, and databases.
We run tests with real-world data on virtualised infrastructure, actual browsers, or generated data.
Our test automation solutions include out-of-the-box plugins for primary CI servers like Jenkins and a CLI for others.
See immediate ROI and savings with simple tools you can test and deploy before purchasing.
We continually run automated tests to give your team faster feedback while minimising troubleshooting and resolution time.
Set up the API test environment
We configure the servers, databases, and every resource with which the API interacts, depending on the software requirements.
Create API testing guidelines
To plan API tests, we must first define testing boundaries and requirements. We answer questions concerning the API's purpose, intended customers, and testing goals.
Perform a test API request
We then ensure that nothing is broken and the API is working.
Establish the input settings
Further, we make a list of all potential input combinations. And then, use them in test cases to authenticate the results and determine if the API works as expected.
Develop API test cases
After completing all the preparations, we design and execute test cases before comparing the actual outcomes to the predicted ones.
