TestModeller.io - QuickStart API Automation Tutorial

Welcome to the TestModeller.io QuickStart automation tutorial for API testing!

In this tutorial we will cover how to use Test Modeller with this framework, which requires no configuration.

This is aimed for beginners who have completed the Modelling 101 tutorial and do not have any experience in setting up automation frameworks.

A demonstration of Test Modeller using the QuickStart API Automation Framework covered in this tutorial.

1. How it Works

TestModeller.io is a browser-based solution that enables users to:

  • Model a system under test as BPMN-style flowcharts.
  • Automatically generate test cases from the model, optimising testing for time and risk.
  • Define test data at the model-level and generate data at the same time as test cases.
  • Define test automation, automatically executing tests generated in The VIP Test Modeller.
  • Analyse test results and manage existing artefacts, with visual dashboards and a file management system that introduces traceability between test assets.

This quick start guide provides an overview for new users to get started with creating automation for a Java Selenium based automation framework to quickly start creating models and associated automation.

For this QuickStart framework you will trigger an automation execution from the model level, allowing you to view run results from within Test Modeller.

TestModeller.io a modelling tool which creates the perfect set of tests into a wide array of test case management systems, and automation frameworks. Along with overlaying the right test data to support your testing.

This section is by no means comprehensive and intended as a quick start guide. If you wish to learn more about modelling we recommend you review our knowledge base and frequently asked questions page along with our video tutorials for a comprehensive guide to creating models and test automation.

The goal is to equip the reader with the working knowledge needed to run the first set of automated tests without needing to configure a framework locally. With TestModeller.io, this means automatically generating complete automated test suites from models that are quick to build and easy to maintain.
