Pricing Advice

What users are saying about SoapUI Pro pricing:
  • "We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member."
  • "My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years."
  • "The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
  • "I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
  • "The cost is not that bad."

Has out-of-the-box database support and can be easily used by non-technical staff

What is our primary use case?

Most of our automation is for REST API, and it involves requested response validation, database validation, and some level of UI automation/validation. The UI is done using Selenium, and SoapUI Pro is used for database validation and file-based validation.

Pros and Cons

  • "The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature."
  • "It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there."

What other advice do I have?

Your choice totally depends on what kind of scope you have. If it is just limited to SOAP and REST services, then SoapUI Pro is the best option. Also, the cost is very much less compared to those of other solutions, for example, DevTest, which is the most expensive tool on the market. I would recommend that if you have any SOAP or REST service automation requirements that you should try out ReadyAPI, which has an evaluation version of SoapUI for 30 days. You could try it, and if you feel that it is a good fit for your automation requirements, then you should definitely think of SoapUI Pro. I…

Easy to set up, great for testing APIs and is very easy to understand

What is our primary use case?

Currently, I'm using this solution to test the API email applications Usually, our clients are in IT. They have web services - more than 300 web services. We are calling those web services in our front-end applications. In order to verify the actual values from the web service, we use SoapUI to connect with the current client endpoint.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution scales well."
  • "Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang."

What other advice do I have?

This solution is stored on the database. For individuals, this solution is great. For teams that would like to collaborate, it's likely not an ideal option. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. We've been very happy with its capabilities.

Good usability and reliability, but needs scripting consistency and more features

What is our primary use case?

We use it for testing SOAP protocol API. We also started with the REST API recently. We use it to manually test as well as to automate a few API calls.

Pros and Cons

  • "It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly."
  • "There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend it to others. It is super easy to master once you know what you need to do. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

An open source solution for mocking, load testing and developing

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a very simple solution to use."
  • "If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give SoapUI Pro a rating of eight. If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating. I don't expect a huge level of information, but at least a high level of information. Overall, I think this solution is very cool and easy-to-use.

Easy to use solution for API testing with lots of support online, but the automation needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for API testing.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are that it is user-friendly, it's easy to use and easy to teach to others."
  • "We tried automation but it's not easy to integrate with the synching and some of the mission tools that we use for automated testing of APIs."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. You should proceed and know that communication is very easy to use, and it's user-friendly. There is a lot of support online. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Flexible, with great API speed and offers very good integration capabilities

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for automatic testing and API testing.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution offers excellent integration capabilities."
  • "Stability has been an issue for us. It needs to be looked at and made a bit better."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We don't have a special relationship with the company in any way. The solution is quite good. I'd rate it overall an eight on a scale of ten. I'd recommended it. One of the main things that's great is the excellent integration into the DevOps tool-chain and the reuse of code between SoapUI and LoadUI.

How are customer service and technical support?

We were in contact with technical support and they were useful. We are satisfied with the support.
