Postman is an API calling tool. When we're thinking about APIs testing, we'll use it for operating and checking that the APIs work correctly. But not today. Today, I'll show you how to use Postman to do exploration testing of APIs.
Why would you want to do that? Because APIs are so complex, it's our duty to learn as much as possible on their behavior, before releasing them into the wild.
So we'll discuss what is exploratory testing, what we need to get started, and how to use Postman to learn about the APIs behavior. We'll learn how to prepare a "charter" for our testing, and how to report our findings. And on the way I'll throw out some Postman tips that are always useful.
It's exploration time!
