Lessons Learned on Testing API

Viktor Slavchev shares some hindsight about an API testing project. API is one of the areas where it makes sense to invest in test automation, because it is an interface that is consumed by code or by an application. So, it fits perfectly the description of easy to test with code application. However, Viktor Slavchev is amazed how little information is available about API testing basics.

The main insights learned from this API testing project are
* Testing endpoints as a separate entity is not even half the work to be done.
* Auto-generated docs are absolute trash as an information source.
* More bugs come out of questioning rather than test execution
