I am new to Rest API testing and this questions might be asked already.
We are building a Rest API for our react applications using Laravel Framework (PHP). We want to test it but we are confused what automated tests approaches we needed.
We went to look for the best way to test our API and found Postman, which is far most popular of all. Now our questions are:
- since we are gonna use Postman, do we need to forget about writing automated tests for our API using curl programmatically?
- do we still need to write Unit Tests for certain sections of the API?
- what are your suggestions to accomplish the same goals of testing Properly our Backend API?
