API testing is a very common task that appears in almost any project that you could possibly think of. This time, we are going to discuss how we can improve our API checks using Postman. We will review the main points of API testing and help you explore Postman features that allow us to do more automated testing rather than a manual one.
We will talk about:
- Main API testing areas;
- Collections that help you organize your API requests;
- Environments that prevent the repetitive actions of requests and their variables updates;
- Pre-request scripts and tests, and how they can improve your API requests;
- Flows: the new Postman feature that helps create a chain of requests.
