Applies to ReadyAPI 3.53, last modified on May 15, 2024

ReadyAPI 3.7.0 includes support for testing Kafka APIs, support for assertion groups, and some more improvements. Below is the list of changes relative to the previous version of the product – ReadyAPI 3.6. For information on the changes made to other versions, see Version History.

Kafka support

ReadyAPI now supports testing of Kafka-based APIs:

  • You add a new Kafka API to your project and then add topics and operations to that API using special dialog boxes and editors:

  • Use the new Event-Driven test step to send and receive messages of asynchronous Kafka APIs. The test step operates in one of the following modes:

    • In Subscribe mode, it connects to a Kafka topic and receives messages from it as long as the connection is open.

    • In Publish mode, it connects to a topic, publishes a message there, and disconnects.

  • You can add assertions to the Event-Driven test step working in Subscribe mode to check incoming messages:

  • ReadyAPI can also serialize and deserialize Kafka messages using connection to Schema Registries.

Assertion groups

Assertions in a functional test can now be grouped into an assertion group:

An assertion group behaves like a regular assertion: it can either pass or fail. Its status depends on the statuses of assertions included in it and the conditions applied (AND / OR).


  • We’ve removed some rarely used tabs:

    – The Resources tab from the REST service editor.

    – The Objects tab from the GraphQL service editor.

    – The Operations tab from the SOAP and XML-RPC service editors.

  • We’ve updated a few third-party libraries to make the product even more reliable and secure. If your scripts refer to classes from these libraries, you might need to update the scripts.

  • We have fixed a few bugs reported by our customers.
