STAREAST 2021 Concurrent Session : Automate Negative Tests for your API


Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Automate Negative Tests for your API

Testing to ensure that your API does what it should, by returning the correct status and messages, are one of the first things that we normally do. We should also spend time on doing negative tests to ensure that our APIs don’t reveal data that it shouldn’t or have any security gaps. In this talk, Julia will go through the different types of API’s as well as respective negative tests that should be done. She will demonstrate how to test API’s using Postman as well as automating API testing in Javascript. This will help you to quickly test API’s in a way that improves quality and reduces issues and security gaps.
