Assign Endpoint to Interface Requests Query

Hi,

 

I was looking at another post by someone (link) and I noticed that I didn't understand something - so I'd appreciate any help.

 

Within the ReadyAPI! tab the user can select a service, hit the 'endpoints' button on the far right of the screen which has a tabular view of the various endpoints for the service - and it's here you can 'assign' the endpoint to either Test Requests or Interface Requests. 

I've just been reading and playing with the 'Assign' button functionality and I can see how most of the options work - e.g. (All requests with no endpoint, All Test Requests) but I can't see any visible change if I select the 'All Interface Requests' option.  I know what a Test Request is - but I must not be understanding what an Interface Request is.

 

Does anyone know what an 'Interface Request' is within this context?

 

I have a single endpoint - see image:Image1.PNG

Currently at this point, there is no endpoint selected on the REST test step that is contained within my TestCase.

 

I select the 'All Interface Requests' option as follows:

But when I select the SoapUI tab and click on the REST test step - the endpoint is still blank - see as follows:

So obviously I'm guessing I don't know what an 'Interface Request' is in this context considering it's not going to mean the same as a 'Test Request' and I've already proved assigning the endpoint to a 'Test Request' populates the endpoint on my REST request test step.

 

Can anyone tell me what is meant by an Interface Request please?

 

sorry about the length of the post - I just wanted to make sure I was nice and clear and not confusing (which is something I struggle with!)

 

Cheers to all!

Re: Assign Endpoint to Interface Requests Query

Hi Rich,

 

Using the "All interface Requests" in the drop down affects the interfaces in the Projects module in ReadyAPI.  If you click the Projects module you should notice the change in the requests listed under the interfaces (the items with the arrows in opposite directions).  Please see link below.

Hey @MarcusJ 

 

Yeah - I actually found the help page you referenced - but I wasn't finding anything that actually told me what an interface was in regards to this - but you have - so cheers!

 

Thanks man,
