REST API Testing Strategy: What Exactly Should You Test?

Mike Cohn’s famous Test Pyramid places API tests at the service level (integration), which suggests that around 20% or more of all of tests should focus on APIs (the exact percentage is less important and varies based on needs).

So the importance of API testing is obvious. Several methods and resources help with HOW to test APIs — manual testing, automated testing, test environments, tools, libraries, and frameworks. However, regardless of what will use — Postman, supertest, pytest, JMeter, mocha, Jasmine, RestAssured, or any other tools of the trade — before coming up with any test method need to determine what to test…
