Applies to ReadyAPI 3.52, last modified on April 18, 2024

ReadyAPI 3.1 includes a number of improvements to make API testing easier and more powerful. Below is the list of changes relative to the previous version of the product – ReadyAPI 3.0. For information on the changes made to other versions, see Version History.

In version 3.1

Overall improvements

  • You can now create GraphQL tests faster by using the new Code Completion window in the request editor of GraphQL queries and mutations. The window helps you view and quickly insert fields and objects declared in your GraphQL schema. To invoke the window, simply press Ctrl+Space:

  • You can now use signed headers for the AWS Signature authentication type.

  • To protect you from running malicious code, ReadyAPI now disables the Load and Save project scripts by default. If needed, you can change this behavior in the Global Security settings.

  • Use the new Format JSON menu item to format and beautify JSON data of REST requests’ bodies. You can find this new item in the context menu of the request content editor:

  • To improve security, VirtServer now has two types of users: regular users who work with virtual services and administrator users who manage users, change VirtServer settings like logging options, and view license information.

  • The VirtServer web interface has new pages for user management (they are available for administrator users).

  • VirtServer now stores user information in a database rather than in a .txt file.

  • VirtServer command line now supports deploying virtual services stored in composite projects.


  • ReadyAPI 3.1 includes newer versions of some libraries which were used in version 3.0. If your scripts refer to classes from these libraries, you might need to update the scripts.

  • We’ve fixed a number of bugs reported by our customers.

Discontinued Support

  • ReadyAPI no longer supports 32-bit Windows operating systems.
