What is most valuable?

The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds. The integration with Slack is very helpful. The… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Katalon Studio is useful because it helped us to generate reports to see which test cases passed versus which ones failed. It gives a good graphical representation of the… more »

What needs improvement?

We found that Katalon Studio crashes a lot of the time and it would be very good if it were more stable. When it crashes, the tests are not always saved and this means… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We were using the free version of this tool.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this solution, we were using TestNG. It is more about writing automation code as opposed to using an automation tool. Using it means that you have to write a lot… more »

What other advice do I have?

Products such as this one are a byproduct of artificial intelligence. It comes up with very nice code snippets that we can use, and it is good to see the industry moving… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Postman and SoapUI along with Katalon Studio. Ultimately, we chose Postman because it has been in the market for a while, it has good open-source… more »

What is most valuable?

ReadyAPI is one of the best tools for API testing because they have made a single platform for functional testing, load testing security, and also service actualization. We also have virtual work that can be an add-in within ReadyAPI. For… more »

What needs improvement?

I think the security testing with API could be improved as they provide limited templates. It would be helpful if they provided us with more capabilities and the flexibility of adding more custom verification for the security testing part… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When it comes to large enterprise, ReadyAPI is good. They also sell specific additional products but they don't force you to buy the complete package. You can select and purchase whichever products you want. The price is reasonable and I… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously worked with SoapUI Open Source, and also with ParaSoft SOAtest which is a similar product to ReadyAPI from the ParaSoft SOAtest. That is also a very good API testing tool and I think they recently added smart generator features… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you're testing mainly on API and then you want to have a full-fledged API testing on load performance, function, security, etc., this product will actually be a one-stop platform for that. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The variables part is good. We can easily define the variables and we don't have to manually do a change every time, it gets automatically updated. Secondly, I like the validation feature which is required for our automation testing. This way we can see that our test case passed. I think we could… more »

What needs improvement?

In terms of what can be improved, I would expect extra features that would make our work easier. I just saw that it's functioning is based on the machine. Meaning, if we have a certain build on one machine it won't work with another build even if we are using the same URL. It would give us a… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten I would rate it an eight.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also use SoapUI.

What is most valuable?

They have a feature where they can record traffic and create tests on the report traffic. That is one of the most valuable features that we've found. So we can run our UI automation tests and directly create services tests from that, which… more »

What needs improvement?

The product is very slow to start up, and that is a bit of a problem, actually. It is not as fast and it's a bit clunky, especially if you use it for the whole day or for a long time, it doesn't save the data, for example. So, it's a bit… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They do have a confusing licensing structure. Their licensing structure is really complex and being able to find out the right product for you, for an organization specifically, is a bit harder, but once you find the thing, their… more »

What other advice do I have?

It is a good solution, and if you're looking to migrate from an existing toolset as well, it's a pretty good solution. It is quite vast, and they have a lot of other toolsets in there. It has a lot of other toolsets like virtualize which is… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate the other options in the market, Tosca and SoapUI, which we evaluated. Ultimately, we went with this tool.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are scalability and technical support.

What needs improvement?

The definition of the APIs should improve because you can't easily validate the inputs and outputs. Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive. For a bank, it would not be expensive, but to implement this solution for a smaller company such as an insurance company, it would be too expensive. The pricing is complicated and not… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used several solutions previously, such as IBM API Connect, WSO2 API Manager, and many other API solutions.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good API tool. I think that this solution is very good in some use cases but not very good for some small companies. It can be complicated for licensing and pricing. This is a product that I can recommend otherwise. I would… more »
