Load Test for Web API

We have a web api payment processing service in production. We'd like to get the performance measured by LoadNinja. We don't have front application because that is custom developed by our partners. The authentication method is a bit different than the standard. It is using private key file from the client and service. The authentication is done by the front end application code. My difficulty is if loadninja support this kind of process.

LoadNinja is intended primarily for the load testing through the UI (i.e. for web application running in the browser).

For UI-less API testing I would recommend to consider ReadyAPI Test and ReadyAPI Performance (former SoapUI and LoadUI) -
