Rest API testing using behave in Python

by: Jason Campos – Senior QA Engineer – GlobalNow IT

API testing is an important component in a company’s QA strategy since their client’s often consume the API endpoints to get the necessary information for execution of the business. In most cases, manual testing is initially performed at the most important endpoints to ensure the customers retrieve the information needed; followed by automation of the test scripts for daily execution using Continuous integration.

I recently implemented test automation for a client’s REST API; using Python + behave as the primary framework, and I would like to share my experience and techniques used for this automation project.

Why and How we used Docker for our QA automation project

In my previous blog, I talked about the first phase of a successful QA automation project built on a Docker environment. Now, I would like to describe the advantages we realized by using Docker, and some of the techniques we used to implement.

Typically, when we begin a new automation project, we spend significant time configuring our environment and fixing associated issues as they surface. With Docker technology, we just need to build a file that configures an environment that normally works “issue free” – avoiding the time spent in configuration and problem solving.

Docker is an open source software that allows us to package applications in a container, Containers are like a VM. However, they have a very important difference –  a container can share the system kernel with others, which means we can run multiple containers (with their own user space) simultaneously run on a single host machine.

My QA Automation Project – Key Steps to Success

I recently finished the first phase of a successful QA automation project built on a Docker environment.  Below are some of the key steps we took as part of the project:

Setting expectations and choosing the framework:

My first step was to help educate the client on what could be accomplished for their project with automation, which was important to ensure they were aware of both the benefits and limitations of an automation initiative. Once we had a good understanding of the project scope and underlying development technologies (knowing we will need to further integrate the code with the Automation framework in the future), I provided a recommendation for the QA languages and framework. We decided to use Selenium Webdriver, Java, Maven to manage the libraries, TestNG and AWS (docker containers) to run the tests scripts in a Linux with headless browsers.

Accelerating Software QA Automation ROI with Templates

It’s been a while since I started working in QA Automation.  I began  in 2007 and since that time I have been part of a variety of teams, with different methodologies and objectives that included some type of an automation initiative.  Of course they were all striving for more stable code and a more effective way to find and fix bugs – but they had something else in common: they all wanted to have the automation framework deployed as soon as possible.

Innovation – by a QA team?

We often hear how innovation is now one of the key considerations to building and maintaining a successful business.   I don’t consider myself very creative, especially when it comes to designing and developing technical solutions.  So, it’s always rewarding (and impressive to me) when I see our team members innovate for their clients – taking an idea (based on need) through to developing a tangible solution, that generates actual tangible results. There is no doubt that necessity is still the mother of invention.
