API Fortress supports REST and SOAP web services. As a modern, cloud-native platform, API Fortress makes it easy for developers to work in parallel with QA engineers, automation engineers, and manual testers (technical and non-technical). Simplify management and execution of end-to-end API tests at any scope and scale.
Ensure that APIs function and perform as they should in real world scenarios: API tests run continuously in API Fortress as monitors
Catch a wide range of API issues that synthetic monitoring tools and traditional monitors cannot find
Deploy unlimited API monitors without paying for cap limits and seat licenses
Mass generate functional API tests that can be reused as end-to-end API monitors
Turn any database into an API for data-driven API testing and monitoring (read this DZone article for more info)
Compare API Fortress to Any API Testing and Monitoring Tool
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.
API Fortress offers a proven library of assertions along with a Quick Start Guide and API Testing University to help teams start quickly or improve existing API testing and monitoring. If you only want to monitor public APIs, our affordable Hosted Plan include automated test generation of your functional API monitors. Or if you want unlimited API testing and monitoring across the organization, check out our self-hosted plans.
