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

Our teams have been using ReadyAPI tools ever since we decided to implement automated testing to test our API services. After successfully using ReadyAPI Test to test our RESTful services for many years, we're now also starting to use it to load test our APIs. It allows us to create extensive functional and performance tests and benefits greatly our entire department.
  • Ease of use (ability to automatically import API definitions, Jenkins integration for running in the pipeline).
  • Detailed test reports (allow to easily identify weak spots during both functional and performance testing).
  • One platform for all tests (allows to closely couple and reuse existent tests).
  • Sometimes Ready API Test performs poorly or freezes when REST response contains a lot of data
  • Performance Tests documentation could be updated to describe different assertion points with examples of usage.
  • Ability to disable certain test steps only in the Performance Tests section, while leaving them on for Functional Tests could be added.
  • It allowed us to identify bugs on early development stages and during regression testing.
  • It is easy to use and does not require a lot of time and effort to train new employees.
  • It saved time and eliminated the need for manual testing in most scenarios.
I have not used other API testing products but I am completely satisfied with the functionality and performance of ReadyAPI. It covers all required API protocols and database connections that are used in our organization. It also allows extending the functionality by adding external DB drivers and wiring custom scripts when the native assertion/data manipulation test steps are not sufficient.
It greatly reduced the time we used to spend on API testing. Ready API allows automating most of our testing with greater coverage than manual testing. Test cases can be created without much effort and can be reused for different testing goals.
Using ReadyAPI has been very intuitive. Its UI is not overly complicated while allowing to adjust a great number of parameters. Creating test cases is very easy because the application allows most of the tasks to be done with intelligent wizards that will suggest appropriate steps at each stage of test development.
