Auto generate REST API test scripts
I am an automation tester in a company where I will have to test a bunch of APIs.
I was wondering if there is any tool out there which can auto generate at least a part of the tests for me?
Do you recommend any tool for this? I was thinking about using Java and RestAssured.
If the APIs are following a strict standard, such as swagger or RAML, it is possible. Commercial Tools ? Swagger, Test Your API | RAML
Otherwise, I'd probably just create a several utility method that can do all the boilerplate checks like status is 200, well formed xml/json, etc... Then that'll leave you with just adding the specific validations on the fields you need.
