Cosmetics Leader Slashes Testing Efforts With API Automation

Challenges

  • Understanding Complex Business Cases: Understanding complex business cases for sections affected by MuleSoft API integration was a challenge, requiring a deep understanding of the intricacies involved.
  • Adapting to System Renovation: Adapting to the internal system’s renovation and ensuring integrity, security, standardization, governance, and management through a set of contracts or protocols posed challenges.
  • Designing API Call Sequences: Designing and managing potential API call sequences for integration with ownership required careful planning and execution.
  • Security Validation: Validation of scenarios involving security points for authentication was critical to prevent data breaches that could expose valuable data from crucial departments.
  • Updating API Testing Schema Configuration: Maintaining and updating API Testing schema configuration related to data formatting and storage of data with requests and responses throughout the testing lifecycle was necessary.

Solutions

  • API Integration Visualizations: Understanding and visualizing API integrations and call sequence validation ahead of developing API collections and test automation.
  • Security Validation: Implementing rate limits to validate REST API security points, restricting the number of requests to enhance security.
  • Efficient API Integration Strategies: Implementing API integration strategies that simplify multiple workflow processes simultaneously, bridging the gap between legacy and modern systems.
  • Schema Updates: Keeping the schema updated in response to changes in the API document, including the addition of new features or updates to existing ones.

Benefits

  • 100% Test Coverage: Achieved 100% test coverage of all core test API verifications, ensuring comprehensive testing.
  • Framework Reusability: Implemented a framework that could be periodically reviewed and adapted to support changes in product design or features, enhancing flexibility.
  • Integration Workflow Reusability: Achieved reusability of integration workflows across different collections, improving the efficiency of solution development.
  • Effective Call Sequencing: Handled call sequencing to check discrepancies in multi-threaded applications, ensuring smooth integration.
  • Automated Security Points: Created OAuth 1.0 Signature creation logic to automate security points for authentication, enhancing security.
  • Improved ROI: Improved return on investment (ROI) with reduced testing efforts through the provided automation solution, optimizing resource utilization.
