Tricentis Tosca

API testing for everyone and every app

Tosca’s API Scan allows teams to easily create, manage, and execute automated API tests with a simple, no-code solution that literally anyone can use and adopt. With support for multiple API technologies from REST to SOAP, enterprises can accelerate the quality of their releases at Agile and DevOps speed through fast, resilient API testing.

Why Tosca API Scan?

Think about it – the API layer of an application is usually the first thing that gets built. Unfortunately, API testing is a major challenge for organizations due to the programming skills needed to create and maintain API tests. Testing becomes slow and inefficient – ultimately, impeding the agility of your software delivery.

Tricentis breaks down this technical barrier and helps teams shift left by simplifying API testing with a codeless, model-based testing approach.

Test faster and shift left

Teams can create and execute API tests much earlier in each sprint – without having to wait for the full application to be built.

Increase test resilience and stability

API tests can often verify detailed “under-the-hood” functionality that lies beyond the scope of UI tests – allowing teams to test deeper and more thoroughly.

Reduce maintenance

Anyone can rapidly update API tests as applications evolve – allowing organizations to save time and costs from setting up specialized API testing teams and resources.

Get more coverage

Run 200 API tests in under one minute – as opposed to 10 hours for UI tests. This additional time gives teams more flexibility to find and fix bugs immediately.



Easy-to-use, codeless approach

Creating API tests has never been easier – non-technical testers and business analysts can easily build, maintain, and extend test cases without worrying about JSON, XML, or XPaths.


Reuse API tests for service virtualization

Tosca API tests can automatically be converted into service virtualization assets, allowing teams to speed up Agile development.


Migrate SoapUI tests to enterprise API testing

Convert your fragmented SoapUI projects to Tosca API testing for extreme reuse — dramatically improving maintenance, efficiency, and collaboration.


Integrate API tests into end-to-end flows

Combine API and UI tests in the same workflow to create fully automated end-to-end scenarios that span across web, mobile, SAP, and more.


Improve Agile collaboration

Developers can easily capture key request/response pairs through Tosca’s lightweight API Scan tool and automatically convert them into business-readable test cases. This jump starts the process for QA and reduces the learning curve.


High reusability

Create API tests once and reuse them as “building blocks” across teams, projects, and end-to-end tests.

Extensive API technology support

Most API testing tools only support REST and SOAP protocols. For enterprises with hundreds of integrated systems, this limited support simply won’t work. Tricentis supports your entire API journey, from web APIs to legacy backend protocols, ensuring true end-to-end testing.
