If your team already uses SoapUI, you can still make REST calls.
You will need:
- Install the latest version of SoapUI
- Some programming experience
- A Project Insight account
To use the REST API's for testing purposes
Figure 1 - Creating a new SOAP Project
Next, make a REST call to authenticate and receive an authentication key
Figure 2 - Make a REST call to return an authentication key Tip: This REST call expects a JSON user object. To learn more about JSON, click here.
If you have created your JSON user object correctly and supplied the correct Project Insight credentials, the method will return a key successfully.
Figure 3 - JSON object returns a successful session key when authenticating Tip: Provide your Project Insight API Token, username, password and set the token timeout expiration value.
This is just one example of using a 3rd party tool, such as SoapUI, to test and validate Project Insight REST services.
