API Fortress Releases Mass Functional Test Generation for API Testing and Monitoring

API Fortress, the leader in functional uptime monitoring and collaborative API testing, announces Mass Functional Test Generation. For the first time, engineers, architects, and QAs can import OpenAPI or Swagger spec files and have a large number of functional tests generated for them. The current beta release of Mass Functional Test Generation will become a generally available release on January 31, 2020. Current and new API Fortress customers may begin using Mass Functional Test Generation at no additional cost.

Fortress Launches Innovative Collaboration To Help Protect The Power Grid From Cyber Threats

A critical advantage of Mass Functional Test Generation from API Fortress is the ability to generate large batches of tests that do more than simply contract tests against the spec.

Patrick Poulin, CEO, and Co-Founder of API Fortress explains:

With over 95% of API vulnerabilities caused by human error or functional error, it’s very important to functional test all APIs prior to release, and then monitor them with the same functional tests. As more companies accelerate releases and incorporate automated CI/CD pipelines, detecting and fixing functional errors before they are released is more important than ever.

Augmented AI Defining the New Reign of AI Advancements

Functional tests generated via Mass Functional Test Generation can be easily reused as monitors and load tests. Monitoring with API Fortress functional tests allows companies to differentiate between uptime and “functional uptime,” a far more important metric that goes beyond simple ping tests.
