Course Summary

The principle of Continuous Testing places the importance of testing not only in pre-production but also after release. When an API does not perform as expected, it can result in a serious issue with your app's functionality and user experience. BlazeMeter's API Monitoring allows you to test all of your API endpoints continuously, and monitor your APIs and services in real time, without any dependency on additional teams. In this course, we'll walk you through everything there is to know about BlazeMeter API Monitoring, end to end.

In this course, we will:

  • Introduce the app and orientation around it
  • Show how to monitor your APIs with precision
  • Demonstrate how to collaborate with your team within a bucket
  • Provide the best practices around configuring tests and automating them

BlazeMeter consists of five main product pillars - Performance Testing, Functional Testing, API Monitoring, Mock Services, and Test Data. To learn more about the other pillars, consider the following courses that are available on BlazeU:

Master BlazeMeter Performance Testing
In this course, we will provide initial orientation around the BlazeMeter app, explain best practices on running tests at any scale, and demonstrate performance test configuration in BlazeMeter. We will also set the foundations for working with BlazeMeter’s Continuous Testing platform and show breakdown of all the features and functionalities BlazeMeter offers.

BlazeMeter Scriptless Testing: Fundamentals
The focus of this course is on the Scriptless Testing features of BlazeMeter, designed to author automated GUI Functional Tests, all without knowing the underlying Selenium scripting language used behind the scenes to define and execute the tests. In this course, we will tour the BlazeMeter platform features used to store tests and reports, record tests with the BlazeMeter Chrome Extension, edit tests in the Scriptless Editor, and much more. 

Introduction to BlazeMeter Mock Services
The BlazeMeter Mock Services feature lets you dynamically create mock services that remove constraints and dependencies by standing in for external or internal resources that may not be readily available. The Introduction to Mock Services course teaches you how to leverage mock services in BlazeMeter to eliminate dependencies and constraints and to enable continuous shift left testing. We will describe the concepts behind mock services and key use cases, demonstrate how to import and build a shared repository of transactions, explain the best practices for creating and deploying mock services, and guide you as you create and deploy your own mock service through interactive exercises.
