Importing API Calls

Key Concepts

It is possible to bulk import API definitions in a number of standardized formats into APImetrics. This makes it easier to setup API calls when a large number of tests for different endpoints are required.

You may import your API definitions either directly from Postman, from APIMATIC, or by giving us the URL of a specification. With the help of our friends at APIMATIC, we can import a wide variety of formats.

Supported Specification Formats

With the help of our friends at APIMATIC, we support the following API specification formats:

  • API Blueprint
  • OpenAPI/Swagger 1.0 - 1.2
  • OpenAPI/Swagger 2.0 JSON
  • OpenAPI/Swagger 2.0 YAML
  • WADL - W3C 2009

Using the Importer

For in-depth help, see the help pages for Postman, APIMATIC, or by URL of a specification.

Note: Once the import has completed, you may need to set up any environment variables your API calls require. You may also want to check that your API calls have the correct Authentication settings.

Once you've reviewed your calls, you should set up a schedule for your new workflows.
