Overall Satisfaction with ReadyAPI (formerly SoapUI Pro, LoadUI Pro, & ServiceV Pro)

We use ReadyAPI mainly for API test automation and with the ReadyAI it has become easier to integrate with Jenkins. We use it only for one of the test automation projects where API test automation is also into scope.
  • Easy to use user interface
  • Lot of inbuilt controls to easily do API test automation
  • Good reporting
  • Easier way to integrate with Jenkins
  • Needs good documentation
  • Need to improve the performance of the tool
  • Setup is very complex and for such [a] commercial tool, it should easy and straightforward
  • Tool says it supports security testing but in reality, it is not at an extensive level.
  • We were able to achieve our needs in API test automation with the tool
  • In terms ROI, I would say that we have gotten what is basically needed
  • Though the initial setup was tough, after that we were able to continue it with user friendly UI and reporting.
  • Overall, it had [a] neutral impact in terms [of] ROI.
We have considered only Postman as an alternate option and ended up with Ready PI for its in built features like reporting and easy maintenance.

Are you happy with ReadyAPI's feature set?


Did ReadyAPI live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of ReadyAPI go as expected?


Would you buy ReadyAPI again?


Being a commercial tool, there is a lot of expectation to have very smooth set up [of] the framework for the API test automation, but in reality we had challenges in doing that so it would be nice to have an easier setup. The main problem is performance of the tool, which is something SmartBear has to work [on] in all [of] their products. It hangs quite often [and then you] need to restart the application.
