Introducing Functional API Testing
1. Reuse your existing JMeter scripts and run them as Functional API tests, with the click of a button. Test single APIs or complete business scenarios and add them to your continuous testing process. You can also schedule tests to run periodically.
Functional API testing reports include: requests, responses, pass/fail indications based on assertions, and trends of multiple test executions. Read more here.
2. We’re also introducing the first version of the Functional API Test Maker for Automated Test Case Generation. Just upload your Swagger file and API testing scenarios will be auto-generated for you. Simply choose which of the scenarios to execute, at the click of a button or through your CI/CD process. You can also manually override or create tests.
Are your APIs complex? The Functional API Test Maker provides full test coverage.
- Oh… and we also redesigned the test creation selection page.
New geo-locations available:
- GCE Asia Southeast (Singapore)
- GCE US East (Virginia)
- BlazeMeter now supports JMeter 3.2!
- Manage your invoice details
Do you need to update your company or personal details in your invoice? Now you can make the changes by yourself.
In the Billing section of your Account Settings we added a section for “Billing Details”.
You can add your Name, Email, Company Name, Phone, Address details and VAT Number.
- Disable Legacy API Keys Yourself
As announced in our March 28 release, we will be deprecating existing API keys and moving to a new model that incorporates a key + secret and support for expiration dates to make them more secure. To make the upcoming deprecation process of the legacy API keys smoother, we added a new ability. Now, each user can disable their own API key.
Disabling Legacy API Keys can also be enforced by the account Admin. Just go to “General Settings” under the account settings.
- Apache JMeterTM Version Automatically Detected
We updated the Apache JMeter™ version choosing mechanism in BlazeMeter. From now on, the default version will be “Auto Detect”. This means BlazeMeter will automatically choose an Apache JMeter™ version according to your script. If you choose to, you can override that version by selecting a different version from the dropdown menu, just like before.
- UI Upgrades
As part of our continuous effort to improve user experience, we updated the button you can use to invite users to collaborate. It now looks like this:
