Why we use SOAPUI?


SOAPUI is not only a tool for functional API testing but also allows us to perform nonfunctional testing steps like Performance and security testing.

Some important features of SOAPUI that I have collected from many sources, hopefully useful for everyone!


  • functional test

A powerful tool that allows Testers to test functional APIs in SoapUI
Support Drag-Drop feature to speed up script development
Supports debugging and allows testers to perform test data.
Multiple Environments Support - Easily switch between QA, Dev and Prod . environments
Advanced scripting support (Testers can customize their code depending on the script)


  • Security testing

Capable of performing a complete vulnerability scan
Prevent SQL Injection to protect the database
Scanning Stack overflows caused by very large data sizes
Scan for Cross Site Scripting, usually occurs when service parameters are displayed in messages.
Perform Fuzzing and Boundary scans to avoid erratic behavior of services.


  • Load testing

Distribute Load tests over all random numbers of loadUI Agents.
Simulate big and real data with ease.
Enables advanced custom reports to capture performance metrics.
Enables End-to-End system performance monitoring
