Functional Testing 07: Using Response Data – Part 1

Seventh in a series focusing on using JMeter for functional testing of an API.

Quite often you will need to use data from one API response to make another subsequent API call. In this tutorial we we will see how to use the token returned by signing in to make an authorized API call to another API end point which requires you to be signed in (we will get a list of folders).

We are really going to start testing now!

Functional Testing 03: Let’s Be Lazy

Third in a series focusing on using JMeter for functional testing of an API.

Sometimes laziness is a good thing. Sure laziness can result in nothing getting done. But laziness can sometimes result in MORE getting done. So let’s strive to be lazy, but lazy in a way that empowers us to do more!

In this tutorial, we will take what we’ve learned about Samplers and Variables, and combine it with some new concepts that will make our work reusable across our test plan. We will learn how to create a library of samplers which are parameterized to allow us to call them many different ways in many different tests.
