  • Get coverage testing results for OpenAPI/Swagger definitions to determine what portion of your API the tests covers.

  • Export test results in the Allure report format.

  • Use the extended HTTP methods (PROPFIND, LOCK, UNLOCK, COPY and PURGE) when exploring APIs in the Endpoint Explorer.

  • Use the new test.history.disabled property in Maven builds to control collection of run history data.


  • Take advantage of more stable distributed load tests. ReadyAPI now automatically re-establishes the connection to LoadUI Agents if the connection is lost.


  • Use the Swagger compliance assertion to check if an incoming request meets the OpenAPI/Swagger definition.

  • Use the new MockRunListener.beforeRoute and MockRunListener.afterRoute event handers to change the data of routed requests. See Handling Events.

Overall improvements

  • Create more powerful validations by using the improved Message content assertion. The assertion now supports new conditions: Contains, Not Contains, Exists, Not Exists and RegEx.

  • Support for OpenAPI specifications ver. 3.0.1 and 3.0.2.

  • A number of UX improvements:

    • The list of available Integrations has now sections for different integration types.
