Integrated API Testing with API Fortress

Testing one’s APIs is a critical step in ensuring quality. An obvious statement to make, but an often overlooked one. Commonly, testing means engineering focused unit or functional tests that make everyone happy on the development and QA teams. That means that the end-users, the developers using your APIs, are often left as afterthoughts. Leaving the developer experience to be not fully tested, monitored, or improved on a continuous basis. To help our customers do a better job of testing their API facades - the APIs that they put into the hands of their developer partners - we have worked closely with API Fortress (http://www.apifortress.com) to make it easy to automatically generate API tests by leveraging your I/O Docs. If you are not using API Fortress, or a similar testing tool, be sure to check it out. They provide incredibly valuable testing and monitoring tech for APIs. Some sample screenshots of the integration and the product in action can be found below.
