Easily set up functional tests for monitoring to accurately track the true uptime of your APIs. Go beyond a ping test, and ensure satisfaction of the contract and SLAs. Leverage continuous feedback with enough detail to accurately and quickly diagnose API problems before they are discovered by end users or cybercriminals.
Easily Reuse Functional Tests for Monitoring
Automatically create your first tests in seconds from a payload, spec files, or recorded API traffic.
Then edit tests in your own IDE, our downloadable IDE Forge, or our simple drag-and-drop GUI. Then use your existing tests for monitoring functionality and performance of important environments.
Validate Functional Uptime and Performance
Validating functional uptime allows you to confirm that APIs respond as expected, rather than simply checking for a 200 OK.
Detailed reporting and notifications from API Fortress integrates seamlessly with your existing workflows: export data to Kibana and get notifications in Slack.
Execute Monitoring via Built-in Scheduler
Gain unrestricted control over how and when monitoring is executed against any environment.
Schedule existing tests to act as uptime, functional uptime, and performance monitors, running automatically as desired. Run them individually, by tag, or by entire collections.
Standardize Performance Monitoring Across Teams
Give all team members access to performance monitoring capabilities on a centralized platform.
This allows you to enforce a standardized testing and monitoring strategy that saves time and eliminates bottlenecks from performance and load issues that are not found until late in the development lifecycle.
Get Detailed Reporting and Real-Time Status
The most detailed test reports in the market help teams understand and diagnose API flaws faster.
Our platform includes APIs that allow all data to be exported in real-time to any platform. With test results stored on a collaborative platform, your entire organization gains a single vision of real-time API health.
Additionally, API Fortress automatically generates a real-time status page that unifies insights about API performance and functional uptime for all key stakeholders.
Common Use Case
Internal API Monitoring
Uptime alone is a false metric. Monitor your internal APIs for functional uptime by leveraging our monitoring feature that far surpasses what traditional monitors can do.
Our monitors use data-driven functional tests to catch more types of bugs, including human error. Maintain internal SLAs with the highest uptime guarantees while also supplementing API security by monitoring for functional vulnerabilities. Deploy unlimited internal API monitors without paying extra usage fees. Keep our Internal Monitors in a self-hosted cloud behind your perimeter.
Roll out a complete API monitoring program without increasing IT resources. The optional On-Demand feature will autonomously build functional uptime monitors for your partner, public, and mobile app APIs.
On-Demand Monitors come with built-in best practices for the primary use cases in retail, banking, financial services, healthcare, telecom, transportation, and other industries.
