Graphql Requests contain query string and response is in JSON.
Any options available to test this in Soap UI ?
GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data.
This is similar to REST request.But we have an option to test REST and SOAP request in Soapui tool.I wanted to know if there is any option to use soapUI for testing this.
Graphql API request url:
I am using SoapUI tool for testing soap and rest services from past 2 years.
My question is will SoapUi support the testing of GraphQL API in a similar way how we tested soap and rest ?
And if yes can you help me with it ?
A good place to start is the trial version of Ready API that has a plugin to convert Postman collections.
GraphQL is not the same as REST, it is an alternative protocol, also based on HTTP. https://graphql.org explains it well. TL;DR: It's an HTTP POST of JSON, with a JSON response. Rather than being defined by swagger (or RAML) the way REST is, GraphQL's schema definition and validation are built into the GraphQL spec. Theoretically any HTTP testing tool that can do POST and accept a JSON response could be used to test GraphQL, but of course having the tools understand what they are doing would be more productive (e.g. a query builder is much faster and more accurate than hand coding queries, data driven testing beats manually coding each test call, etc.). And by that standard, there's no sign that SoapUI supports GraphQL at all.
