When UI Testing Hits the Wall, Break Through With API Testing

Presented by

Jeff Peeples, Senior Product Manager, Adam Attanasio, Product Manager

About this talk

The user experience for web applications is critical. If your application’s user interface isn't fully tested, it likely won't work as expected and your customers may seek another option. But UI testing only goes so far. It can’t validate the full functionality of the software. Most user experiences in today’s applications are a fancy frontend that calls numerous backend APIs or services. To increase UI testing efficiency and ensure proper operation, you need to add API testing to your workflow. API tests run faster and provide more comprehensive testing for the overall functionality of the application. You can also address corner cases more effectively to verify functionality under multiple conditions. Key takeaways: • Test web UI browser-based applications faster and more reliably with AI-driven record and playback. • Use recordings to create no-code API tests for better application coverage and shorter testing cycles. • Easily convert UI tests to intelligent API tests to optimize test execution.
