API testing is an essential part of the software development process because it helps to ensure that APIs are working as expected and that they can handle the load that will be placed on them when the software is released. Additionally, it can help to identify potential security vulnerabilities in the API before the software*is*released.

There are many API testing tools available. Here are a couple of tips to watch out for.

Ability to integrate the tool with a continuous integration pipeline.
Possibility to run asynchronous tests to improve the execution time.
Easy-to-use interface and ability to group API requests or organize them into collections.
Quick sharing options or synchronization options for teams.
Ability to generate API documentation directly from the API*testing*tool.

Here are a few popular API functionality testing tools that you can consider:

Postman: Postman is a widely-used API testing tool that offers a user-friendly interface for designing, testing, and documenting APIs. It provides features like automated testing, request/response inspection, and collaboration capabilities.

SoapUI: SoapUI is a powerful testing tool specifically designed for testing SOAP and RESTful APIs. It offers a comprehensive set of features for functional testing, security testing, load testing, and mocking of APIs.

Insomnia: Insomnia is an open-source API testing tool with a sleek and intuitive interface. It supports various types of APIs, provides code snippets, supports collaboration, and allows for automation through plugins.

JMeter: Apache JMeter is primarily known for performance testing, but it can also be used for API functionality testing. It offers a wide range of features, including load testing, functional testing, and scripting capabilities.

Karate: Karate is an open-source tool that combines API testing, test automation, and mocking in a single framework. It uses a simple and expressive syntax and supports both REST and SOAP APIs.

Newman: Newman is a command-line tool that runs Postman collections, allowing you to automate API tests and integrate them into your CI/CD pipeline.

Consider factors such as your specific requirements, ease of use, documentation, community support, and compatibility with your development environment when choosing an API functionality testing tool. It's also a good idea to try out a few options and see which one best fits your needs.

These factors can really help you get up to speed quickly. One tool that might catch your interest is ZAPTEST. It's not just for regression testing; it also offers API functionality testing features. The tool supports a wide range of technologies and allows for scriptless test case generation, which can be a great advantage if you're still getting the hang of things.
