This feature allows you to create a test starting from a specification file.
From the interstitial page choose the ‘Build from SPEC’ icon.
Note: the process deletes your working copy, keep it in mind if you are doing it on an existing test.
The available specification files you can choose from are: RAML 0.8, RAML 1.0, Swagger, API Blueprint, I/O Docs.
There are two ways to do it: uploading a File or an URL. The dropdown on the top right of the screen allows you to choose your mode.
The File can be uploaded by dragging it in the dedicated area or clicking on it and upload the file from your computer.
Or you can reference it with a URL. Selecting the URL field in the dropdown shows up the SPEC Url field.
Once you have chosen the file type and the method, click the Save button and you will be redirected to the next step where the available endpoints are listed in a dropdown. Choose the one you want to test and tap Continue. That’s all, test will be created. Now you can make any adjustment, save and publish it for being able to schedule it.
Note: For RAML we suggest uploading the entire zip file. Here is an example video of building from a RAML file.
