Introduction to Manual and Automated API Testing with Postman

API testing is a critical aspect of software development that ensures the functionality, reliability, performance, and security of an application programming interface (API). Postman is a popular tool used by developers and testers for manual and automated API testing. This course provides an introduction to both manual and automated API testing using Postman, covering essential concepts and techniques to help you become proficient in testing APIs effectively.

Throughout the course, you will learn how to create and execute test cases, work with variables and environments, perform data-driven testing, and handle authentication mechanisms. You will also explore how to set up and run automated API tests using Postman's collection runner and Newman, a command-line collection runner for Postman. By the end of the course, you will have a solid foundation in API testing methodologies and best practices.

Key topics covered in this course include:

  • Understanding the fundamentals of API testing
  • Creating and organizing API test cases in Postman
  • Performing manual testing of APIs
  • Automating API tests using Postman's collection runner
  • Using Newman to run Postman collections from the command line
