What is Cycle Cloud?

Our patented and business-focused automated testing software is now available on the cloud, which allows users to access the platform without having to install anything on their computer. The Cycle Cloud platform allows users to access updates and new features seamlessly without needing to download the updates manually, while providing users with a modern interface. Cloud-hosted projects and assets also free up local disk space and provide tighter integrations with Features, Scenarios, and Steps. Additionally, Cycle Cloud enables users to easily view historical data, test results, and trends allowing us to prioritize product releases and enhancements based on real time user data.

Web API Testing Now Available in Cycle Cloud

Professional testers and business users alike can use our new Web API Steps to create small, targeted web API tests of individual operations before validating typical use cases via broader end-to-end UI tests. 

In addition, our Web API Steps can be used to set up environments with data to facilitate more targeted UI tests, and can help with environment cleanup and teardown after a test is run. 

If a user can write a UI test, they can write a web API test using our handy predefined Steps.


Continuous Confidence with Less Maintenance

By leveraging Web API Steps in their test suites, users can be armed with more reliable tests that require less effort to maintain. Also, because web API tests are more targeted, they can be run consecutively in a faster timeframe than typical UI tests. Speedy, repeatable, reliable tests mean fewer surprises are released into production environments.
