Workshop: Test Automation with Postman

Listen to “Postman Automation Workshoppin with Joyce Lin” on Spreaker.

Millions of people use tools like Postman to test their APIs every day. Some testers will use Postman to focus on frontend testing, backend testing, or anything in between. Some use Postman mock servers to isolate testing scenarios. Many testing roles require a minimum of 1 year using Postman or similar tools in this advanced capacity. Writing tests in Postman enables testers to automate testing using the collection runner, monitors, or Newman.

Even if you use Postman on a daily basis, but haven’t yet gotten the swing of using Postman for tests and automation, this session will introduce you to tools like Postman for API unit testing and integration testing.

As our applications and services grow, it becomes more and more time consuming to execute regression testing on the existing codebase every time new functionality is introduced. Learn tips and tricks for automating your API tests to save you time and give you peace of mind that your applications are functioning as you expect.

Workshop Takeaways:

  • API unit tests
  • Integration tests
  • Schema validation
  • Consumer-driven contract testing
  • Automation with the collection runner, monitors, or Newman
