Today, REST APIs power most modern applications. Despite the risks of low-quality and insecure APIs, many application teams neglect API testing and focus on UI front-end testing only. The challenge that software development teams face when testing API’s lies with the code needed to write the logic behind tests, which are often hard to maintain and debug, as well as the tedious work involved in preparing datasets. In this session, you will learn about the common pitfalls and best practices around API test automation. Learn about the common ways to standardize API testing, prepare and share reusable datasets and how to integrate testing into CI/CD to ship code faster and with confidence. You will also learn about the various API security testing techniques including fuzz testing, command injection, unauthorized endpoints, and parameter tampering.
