About the Service

API Testing is categorized into four categories depending upon the requirement of the software or the client. These categories are as follows,

  • Unit Testing

    This testing process is carried out manually via the command line and a cURL command. It is executed when an API has to test a single endpoint by applying a single request and waiting to receive a single response or multiple responses.

  • Integration Testing

    It is the most commonly used form of API testing. APIs are at the center of integrating networks between internal and third party services and hence it is the easiest way to test an API.

  • End-to-end Testing

    It is carried out to ensure that the data being communicated between services remains within that network or channel itself.

  • Performance Testing

    It is carried out to understand and analyze APIs behavior under peak conditions.

TESTRIQ is always accommodating our diverse needs and we feel like they are a part of our company rather than an external supplier.
