Easy Automation For Your API Tests

API test automation has the potential of significantly accelerating the testing and development process. API test automation ensures consistency in testing and enables continuous improvement in the software quality. Automation enables API tests to be executed either at pre determined intervals or to be triggered by an event, like code commit. 

Increasingly testing and development teams are moving towards API test automation and integrating their testing tools with automation frameworks like Jenkins. SoapUI Pro provides easy to use 'point and click' capability that lets teams to bring REST and SOAP tests into automation platforms with just a few clicks without writing any scripts.

SoapUI Pro includes a configurable command-line interface tool, this enables you to run your tests from any task scheduler or as an integrated part of your build process. 

Three steps to full API test automation

Below are the three steps to quickly set up a test and integrate it with automation frameworks.

Step 1: Create an API Test through the intuitive 'New Test' item in the SoapUI menu or on the dashboard
