SoapUI Pro - Powerful REST and SOAP API Functional Testing 

Advanced SOAP and REST API Functional Testing with SoapUI Pro

The Next Generation of SoapUI – easy-to-use and more powerful than ever

The world’s most trusted API testing tool

For REST, SOAP and other popular API and IoT protocols, SoapUI Pro provides the industry's most comprehensive and easy-to-learn API functional testing capabilities. Based on open core technology proven by millions of community members, SoapUI Pro helps you ensure that your APIs perform as intended, meet your business requirements, timeframes, and team skill sets right from day one.

It’s loaded with advanced technologies and features you won’t find in other test tools. The all-in-one automated SOAP and REST API testing tool that's one of a kind.

Prove that your API does its job

The first essential piece of API readiness is making sure that your SOAP or REST API does what it is supposed to do and returns the data it's expected to return. With SoapUI Pro, you can:

  • Create tests directly from Swagger and other popular API description formats
  • Analyze your functional test coverage to know what you're missing
  • Run ad-hoc tests without having to maintain temporary API client code
  • Use the command-line to hook your tests to your build system
  • Quickly flip between multiple environments: development, testing, staging, etc.
  • Test REST, SOAP, and other protocols in a single, unified framework

Protect your APIs with security scans

SoapUI Pro includes advanced security testing capabilities. You can now add security scans to your new or existing functional tests with just a click. Instead of security experts, with SoapUI Pro’s easy to create scans, security testing lands squarely with the testers and developers of your team. This helps ensure that critical API security testing occurs every time your tests run and is no more considered as an afterthought. SoapUI Pro allows you to:

  • Quickly generate security scans to run against all your API tests
  • Protect your APIs by running standard scans designed to mimic standard hacking techniques
  • Create custom scans or layer them over existing scans to cater to your own use case
  • Integrate API security with automation to ensure your APIs stay secure after every code change

Put dynamic data to work for you

Using realistic, dynamic data in your functional API tests is critical to covering boundary conditions, positive/negative testing, and truly simulating the way your consumers interact with your APIs in the real world. SoapUI Pro saves you invaluable amounts of time by enabling you to:

  • Use external data sources to keep your tests and data more maintainable
  • Avoid having to repeat tests for different scenarios by using multiple data sets
  • Validate results using data from either a database, file, or prior response
  • React quickly when new cases arise by simply creating new data sets, not tests

Create SOAP and REST API tests quickly and intuitively

Sometimes your APIs are complicated. That's why with SoapUI Pro, we've made it as easy as possible to create test scenarios by providing design tools that use point-and-click shortcuts to simplify advanced functionality down to a few clicks.

  • Import API descriptions like Swagger and others to rapidly build out API tests
  • Record API calls based on real-world web and mobile apps using API discovery
  • Use property transfer to extract data from one response for use in a later request
  • Avoid complex scripting by building XPath and/or JSON-Path statements graphically

Reduce Errors with Automated API Testing

Creating API tests manually based on a written description can be time-consuming and inaccurate. With SoapUI Pro, you can use our API Discovery feature to find APIs and generate test structures for them. You can also easily refactor your tests when any of your APIs change.

  • Use API descriptions like Swagger to ensure that you've got full test coverage
  • Capture API traffic from a website or switch to proxy mode for mobile devices
  • Use our refactoring capabilities to update your tests when API definitions change

Fit Testing into Your Continuous Delivery Pipeline

Who’s responsible for delivering high quality APIs on your team? Increasingly, the answer is: everyone. Developers are on the hook for shipping great code, testers are in charge of comprehensive quality validation, and operations teams are responsible for making sure things work around the clock.

But quality starts with good design, and SmartBear knows that the quickest way to making all teams more efficient is to squash problems earlier on in the API delivery lifecycle. That’s why ReadyAPI comes fully equip to integrate the varying skill sets on your team with:

  • Graphical API testing tools like SoapUI
  • Command-line support for automated regression testing
  • Results export to popular M2M (jUnit, XML) and other common formats
  • SDK and IDE support for developer-first testing patterns

Your REST API Testing Tool

Don’t let the name fool you – SoapUI Pro is the best REST API testing tool on the market. With all of the benefits of 10 years of evolution, SoapUI Pro is a robust and easy-to-use tool to automate your REST API tests.
SoapUI Pro supports extensive testing of RESTful web services and their resources and representations. For various formats SoapUI Pro is the #1 WADL, RAML, Swagger, XML and JSON API testing tool.
Additionally, SoapUI Pro offers REST Discovery, allowing you to capture REST traffic by simply using the service through a browser or client. After recording, you can view the traffic log and filter it for traffic type according to your needs.

SoapUI Pro – REST API test automation made easy.

Simplify your API strategy with tools that fit in

SoapUI Pro integrates with your entire API delivery ecosystem, from design and mocking to issue reporting and deployment. With an open core plugin framework, integrations to the following areas make ReadyAPI and SoapUI Pro the most extensible and connected automated API testing tool in the world:

  • API management platforms (3scale, IBM API Management, WSO2, Microsoft Azure API Management, CA API Management)
  • API description formats (like Swagger, RAML, API Blueprint)
  • API Performance Monitoring
  • Front-end functional testing
  • Revision control / repository in Git
  • Issue tracking in Atlassian JIRA
  • SDK generation
  • IoT and other protocols (i.e. MQTT, CoAP)

Moving from Open Source to Pro is easy

The same skills and testing knowledge you use in SoapUI open source are immediately applicable in SoapUI Pro. With an improved interface enhancing your experience, you can immediately switch from SoapUI and pick up on your projects right where you left off in SoapUI Pro. It's as seamless as it can get!
