Feature Friday: Seamlessly Testing Boundaries with GraphQL and SOAP APIs
Can you tell us how Qyrus tests GraphQL and SOAP APIs on Qyrus API testing?
In the ever-evolving landscape of software testing, Qyrus continues to push the boundaries of innovation, consistently enriching its platform with new features to elevate the testing experience. These integrations empower testers with an expanded array of customization and usage options, revolutionizing the way they build test cases. One capability we’d like to shine a light on is the different types of APIs we can test on the platform. We’ve talked about API testing in the past, but today we’d like to expand more on how Qyrus can test GraphQL and SOAP APIs and how Qyrus can empower users to perform faster, simpler, and better API testing.
Qyrus’ API testing allows you to test both functionality and behavior for both SOAP and GraphQL APIs. You can also test the client-side performance of these APIs and chain them together in our API Process testing section to test full business processes.
Many organizations out there use REST APIs in their business processes, but still, there are also organizations that utilize SOAP and GraphQL APIs in their applications. That being said, it’s important to be able to test those types of APIs. Qyrus is expanding its capabilities to include even more types in the future.
How does testing this feature impact the testing process overall?
Users can be more all-encompassing when it comes to what they’re able to test on the platform. As we mentioned, REST APIs are widely used but providing the user with the ability to test SOAP and GraphQL as well means that test coverage can be expanded and more of the testing across the application can be automated.
I agree with Brett. These capabilities make testing more efficient, using fewer resources and improving overall application performance.
How might this feature help testers, developers, and business technologists? What value can this feature bring?
For testers, they can build functional tests to test the behavior of their APIs. They can, again, test the client-side performance of those APIs and test them in an end-to-end business process.
Developers can import their APIs to Qyrus and quickly add assertions to them to validate that the APIs are working as expected. And they can test them across different environments like staging, dev, or production.
Since Qyrus has simplified the testing process, business technologists can quickly and seamlessly create API tests using the same import feature Brett mentioned. Assertions can be easily added and in a codeless manner, again simplifying the process for less-technical users.
Does the same or similar functionality exist without Qyrus, and how do competitors address similar problems?
With Qyrus, you truly don’t need to code at all to create test scripts. Codeless testing can improve product quality, increase development efficiency, and expand test coverage. With the amount of reusability that Qyrus offers, users will find the entire process to be much quicker compared to using other similar API testing tools. Another advantage with Qyrus is that everything is on the cloud, including the test reports, which provide a great amount of detail and troubleshooting capabilities.
How do you see the implementation of testing GraphQL and SOAP APIs on Qyrus impacting day-to-day operations across organizations?
As we mentioned multiple times earlier, users can import APIs to create test scripts and everything is codeless, day-to-day operations will greatly speed up and the amount of effort it takes to perform the same amount of testing will be greatly reduced.
As we conclude our exploration of Qyrus API testing, with a special focus on the testing of GraphQL and SOAP APIs, it becomes evident that the platform continues to take leaps in empowering users. The expanded range of customization options and the flexibility to utilize various API calls reflects Qyrus’ commitment to providing testers with a wide range of capabilities to choose from. Qyrus remains steadfast in its mission to provide users with a plethora of features. Embrace the power of Qyrus API testing and unlock a world of possibilities to elevate your testing endeavors to new heights.
