API testing is about more than the healthy functioning of your APIs. Governance, oversight, and API security all rely upon strong API testing capabilities. In a world where APIs are the leading security threat vector, your organization’s API testing capabilities are how you keep customer and company data secure. BlazeMeter by Perforce offers an integrated CI/CD approach to API testing and monitoring. This allows you to achieve:
Akana and BlazeMeter offer comprehensive functional API testing capabilities to ensure your APIs are operating according to their specification. This includes the following:
Akana and BlazeMeter offer robust API performance testing capabilities. This includes the following:
When you add BlazeMeter to your existing Akana deployment, you can more easily test all your APIs in one place.
Akana customers already have access to robust API monitoring features in the API Management Platform. BlazeMeter by Perforce provides enhanced continuous synthetic API monitoring capabilities, with integrations that streamline CI/CD pipelines and notify team members when issues arise in a preventative fashion.. Many customers wonder what the difference is between API testing and synthetic API monitoring:
With BlazeMeter, you can monitor API performance from 19 global locations to ensure optimal functioning in your customer’s geolocation. Quickly compare endpoint performance and workflows via simple dashboards to spot issues or slowdowns. Combine API testing and performance monitoring metrics to narrow hard-to-track issues and improve the quality of your applications. With Akana and BlazeMeter you’ll have access to the following monitoring capabilities:
With Akana and BlazeMeter you can detect challenges early on and simplify the API pipeline for your developers. Keep tabs on how APIs are performing at various stages of their lifecycle to ensure CI/CD processes and API products are in sync across disparate environments. Akana and BlazeMeter also provides integrations that streamline CI/CD processes and notify team members when issues arise in a preventative fashion.
BlazeMeter enables teams to separate CI/CD code development processes from API product tasks. Utilize BlazeMeter mock services to test virtual API endpoints at the build phase regardless of whether downstream endpoints are available.
Perform functional, UI, and API load testing to ensure optimal performance prior to QA and production. Gain critical early-phase knowledge of API product performance.
Ensure API products meet the highest standards for real-world use with use case tests and synthetic API monitoring. Take advantage of extensive QA testing capabilities to prepare APIs for future use.
After being promoted to production, BlazeMeter offers continuous synthetic API monitoring to maintain health and viability of APIs. When paired with Akana’s operational API monitoring features, this offers enterprises a best-in-class solution. Mock services can also be used for the “try-it” capabilities before switching client applications to the production endpoints.
With BlazeMeter and Akana in your environment, you’ll have access a full lifecycle API testing and monitoring suite and features including:
