Good API testing and RIT feature; clarity could be improved

Pros and Cons

  • "Good write and read files which save execution inputs and outputs and can be stored locally."
  • "From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly."

What is our primary use case?

We are a large company based in India. The primary use case of this solution is for our REST architecture. Parasoft uses different languages like JSON, XML and SORBS. It's like an API testing tool and can be used for both automation and manual testing. We are customers of Parasoft and I'm a senior software engineer.

What is most valuable?

I like the write and read files which save execution inputs and outputs and can be stored in a local system. The solution also has a comparison feature that works well. Another good feature is the broad Rational Integration Tester and I like the API testing or microservice testing which is very cool. The solution has key store use for coding and decoding which is useful. You can also automate your request parameters in a broader view, which is great. You can take data from Excel, from tables, or from the database. 

What needs improvement?

From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly. Some aspects were difficult and therefore less useful for us, perhaps we lack the coding knowledge on that. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for about two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is very good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't done much scaling, there are 40 people in my team using the solution and maybe another 10 throughout the company. 

How was the initial setup?

The solution is installed in our system and requires setting up a workspace. There's no deployment process as such, it's just a matter of installing it.  

What was our ROI?

I don't know how beneficial or how profitable the solution will be. I think that requires a long-term perspective. 

What other advice do I have?

In general, this is a hassle free, user friendly tool and it doesn't require much knowledge if you're using the manual testing. Automated testing is also good but requires some knowledge in that field. It has some great features. It's a good tool compared to some of the other paid tools; input and output can be stored before extension and there is also a verification assessment that can be implemented by using some different methodologies inside the tool. If the licensing cost is suitable then I recommend this solution. If you have automation people with in-depth knowledge in coding that will be helpful. 

I rate this solution a seven out of 10.
