One Test, A Million Uses: Introducing Variables Override

We are happy to announce that API Fortress 4.4.0 is introducing a new feature: variables override. Again, we are not great at naming things but this is actually pretty great.

This new feature allows you to alter variables of a test when you schedule it. Easy example: you can create a new schedule to execute a test at 5pm every day, but instead of hitting the live environment (api.company.com), you can change the URL variable to hit the staging environment (StagingAPI.company.com). Basically, this would be a staging environment regression test scheduled daily.

Change the domain you’re hitting, update the ID of the retrieved test, alter the keyword you search, unlimited options at your disposal. Efficiency is everything for us. Now one test can have multiple uses.
