Hafiz Waheeduddin Ahmad has a new post to his site, part three of a series he’s posted on API testing, looking at the use of Codeception for testing API output and functionality.
In this post, we will have a look on how we can use Codeception for API testing.
He starts by helping you get Codeception installed through Composer through a „require“ command line call. He then walks you through the setup of the project and how to use the „codecept“ command line tool. He covers the generated directory structure the bootstrapping created and how to set up a sample configuration for your API. He then gets into writing an example test, showing how to check things like authentication, HTTP header information, response codes and response contents. Finally he shows how to run the tests in both a normal and more verbose way.
