Your First Autokin Test

Step-by-step guide on creating your first Autokin test


Creating your first test

For example we do have an endpoint as https://reqres.in/api/users/2, which is to fetch a user information. So let's start writing our Feature and Scenario, open the first.feature file that was previously generated. The file should have the following content:

@autokin
Feature: My Feature
	As Autokin tester
	I want to verify that all API are working as they should

Scenario: My First Scenario

Accessing REST Endpoint

Now I want to say that I want to access the endpoint:

@autokin
Feature: My Feature
	As Autokin tester
	I want to verify that all API are working as they should

Scenario: My First Scenario
    Given that a secure endpoint is up at reqres.in
    When I GET /api/users/2

We added 2 lines, first we define that we want to access a secure (https) endpoint at the domain reqres.bin. Then on the second line, we said that we want to do a GET to /api/users/2.

Run our test

At this point we already access the endpoint, and we can run test.

./node_modules/.bin/autokin -e
Autokin Test Run
Feature: My Feature > My First Scenario - ✔ Passed

Adding HTTP Status Code assertion

Let's add some test on it. We know that the endpoint will return a 200 status code. Let us add that as verification item, but instead of 200 we expect 400 for it to generate an error. We add the new step after the When.

Scenario: My First Scenario
    Given that a secure endpoint is up at reqres.in
    When I GET /api/users/2
    Then response status code should be 400

Yes, it should be that sentence, we can only change the value that we expect. Let's run the test again.

./node_modules/.bin/autokin -e
Autokin Test Run
Feature: My Feature > My First Scenario - ✖ Failed

│ My Feature │ 66.66666666666666 │         1 │     3 │
└────────────┴───────────────────┴───────────┴───────┘

├────────────────────────┴──────────┴───────┴────────┴────────┴─────────┴─────────┴───────────┴─────────┤
│ My Feature                                                                                            │
├────────────────────────┬──────────┬───────┬────────┬────────┬─────────┬─────────┬───────────┬─────────┤
│      My First Scenario │ ✖ Failed │     3 │      2 │      1 │       0 │       0 │         0 │       0 │
└────────────────────────┴──────────┴───────┴────────┴────────┴─────────┴─────────┴───────────┴─────────┘

As expected it will generate an error. Fixing the expected value to 200 and running the test will have a clean successful run.

Scenario: My First Scenario
    Given that a secure endpoint is up at reqres.in
    When I GET /api/users/2
    Then response status code should be 200

Yes, it should be that sentence, we can only change the value that we expect. Let's run the test again.
