    API Testing in Python with Requests


    99 Minute Workshop


    In this, you'll get hands-on with requests, a popular Python library for consuming RESTful APIs. You'll learn how to write tests that check basic properties of REST API responses, such as HTTP status codes, as well as header and body element values.

    We'll also see how we can create an object in Python that represents a JSON request payload and how to successfully POST it to an API. You'll also get a list of resources for further learning.


    • Create a JSON request payload and POST it to a REST API endpoint
    • Perform a GET call and write assertions for JSON response body element values
    • Perform a GET call and write assertions for basic response characteristics


    Bas has prepared a document for you to download with all the pre-requisites. 

    Read through it carefully and let Bas know if you have any questions ahead of the workshop.
