Apica Announces Next Generation Scripting Tools
July 11, 2018

Apica announced its latest version of Apica Scripting Tools.

New capabilities include two tools for creating scripts that meet the testing demands from modern DevOps and QA teams.

New trends of DevOps and automation are driving the need for an easy to use and API focused testing tool. Apica’s new suite of tools is a direct result of customer feedback requesting a user-friendly tool that leverages a modern GUI based web application, while delivering scripts in a more developer style by describing what the script should do in YAML.

Apica Scripting IDE: The new GUI based scripting tool includes a modern design which allows customers to create scripts by entering requests manually or by recording a session using a web browser. Apica Scripting IDE has complete functionality for extracting and assigning dynamic data and parameter files for much-needed correlation. Advanced scripting with Java plugins is supported for owners of IT and Development. Validated scripts can be uploaded to Apica Synthetic Monitoring and used/ran as monitoring checks.

Apica Scripting YAML: Application owners often use YAML to help store and transmit data. With Apica Scripting YAML customers can create scripts without a GUI in a “developer style.” The script is first described in YAML including the data correlation. Next, the described YAML determines what the script should do and then the script is generated. The YAML syntax includes full support for extracting and assigning dynamic data using for example JSONPath, XPath, Regex, etc. The advantage is that created scripts can then be used for both synthetic monitoring and performance tests.
