What is ReadyAPI?
ReadyAPI allows teams to create, manage, and execute automated functional, security, and performance tests in one centralized interface – accelerating API quality for Agile and DevOps software teams. It allows importing API definitions like OpenAPI/Swagger or AsyncAPI, testing and recording live API traffic, or virtualizing web services to remove pipeline dependencies.
ReadyAPI is handled by SmartBear. ReadyAPI is not an open source tool, but a licensed tool.
In ReadyAPI, We can easily manage our APIs and project. We can easily create APIs from an openAPI, Swagger, WSDL, and WADL definition and use Discovery to record API requests and methods.
ReadyAPI can be used to perform
- Security Testing
- Functional Testing
- Performance Testing
