Ready! API tabs: Projects and SoapUI NG

Hi,

 

On the main menu of Ready! API, there are Dashboard, Projects, SoapUI NG Pro, Secure Pro, LoadUI NG Pro, ServiceV Pro.  I'm confusing a little bit because the test project that I'm inheriting use both tabs "Projects" and "SoapUI NG Pro".  In that test project there are a few test cases that I have to enter some values before running the test.  So I have to swap back-and-forth between "Projects" and "SoapUI NG Pro" tabs to enter all the required values.  So my question, what is the different between "Projects" and "SoapUI NG Pro" ?  Can I just create test project under "SoapUI NG Pro" only?

 

thanks.

    Hi Everyone,

     

    On the Projects screen, you add and manage your API definitions (WSDL, Swagger, RAML, etc), tweak your REST API resources and methods (add or change parameters, etc.) and make test API calls. On SoapUI screen, you create automated functional tests for your APIs.

     

    You can find more information in the Project Page documentation: https://support.smartbear.com/readyapi/docs/projects/about.html

    I've found that the Projects tab is really where you add your WSDL and bindings and maybe have some default requests. Everything I do I put under the SoapUI NG Pro tab, since they are then accessible for Test Suites, Test Cases, and Test Steps and I can better control the flow of data.

      Thanks for your response.

       

      If you dont mind, can you give example of the test case scenario where we need to use both tabs "Projects" and "SoapUI NG Pro" ?

        Unfortunately I cannot, since I've found the Projects tab to not meet my needs when it comes to testing. I design all of my tests on the SoapUI NG Pro tab, as it allows for much better control and flow of tests.
