Pros
Overall, it is a nice tool to test web services, specially if you work with both SOAP e RESTful services and want to concentrate your tests in a single tool.
It is very easy to set up an start with API Test. You don't have to huge know-how about this tool to start your first test and this is great.
It is the best tool on the market for testing SOAP connections. It has advanced options that allow a wide range of complex tests.
Cons
You have to be careful if you have two sessions open at the same time. If you give the wrong answers when closing out both sessions, you may loose some changes you just made to a SoapUI project.
Sometimes it took too much time to load the heavy data file and also crashes sometime. Because of which all the data can be lost.
When you are new to SOAPUI its been difficult to understand the tool in one go.

As a QA Engineer "Soap-UI" is my day maker. It's very easy to test API's with this product.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It helps to complete my day to day testing tasks with more efficiently. It saves my time.

Pros

01 . Any type of users (Beginners or Experts for API testing) can easily adopt to the user-interface and testing process by using "soap-UI" for couple of hours. And now i'm expert at this software. 02. By defining variables, you can customize parameter values without hard coding the values in whole test-case. 03. You can also use external data sheets to retrieve data to your executions. 04. ...

Cons

01. Some times it's little bit slow when you work with large test cases. 02. When generating test results, soap ui open source doesn't give you much options comparing to pro version. 03. you need to know about "Groovy Scripts" If you want to create automated test plans in SoapUI open source version. 04. Subscription plan prices are bit high if you planned to go through Pro versions. Other than that there are no any cons to mention about this product.

Excelent tool for development / testing SOAP and REST apis.

Reviewed a month ago

It was the first API testing tool I used, like 10 years ago and I am still using SoapUI for a bunch of API testing project, even Soap and Rest.

Pros

Simplicity and easy-to-use. It is very easy to set up a Soap/Rest project and start working with those APIs. I use SoapUI mostly for testing purpose, it is possible to generate differents request for the same end-point and test different combination of data.

Cons

The community edition contains some known bugs related to the UI Editor. Sometimes the software crashes and user needs to reset it.

Review of SoapUI from Smartbear

Reviewed a year ago

SoapUI does the majority of what we need fine. We like that it loads sample requests from the service you attach to it, it is useful for cases like ours where you are not provided documentation on the request format. However, our biggest issue came from this feature being unable to be used for any large service, which unfortunately for us means we cannot load requests for several of our more important services.

Pros

We use an antiquated / custom Soap service which we found was unable to be read by some other SOAP parsers. This software was the only one we found that was able to do the job.

Cons

I believe the program was written in Java and has a huge fault when we use it. One of our SOAP services has 100+ endpoints, so much so that SoapUI can't handle loading sample requests for the entire endpoint and will freeze the computer. We have never been able to find a workaround for this. It works fine for our smaller services but once the services get big with large requests, it will crash 1/4 or 1/3 of the way through its loading.

API Testing made easy

Reviewed 4 months ago

I have been using it to test APIs between two or more different systems. It is free to use tool which has been leveraged by our project and has been helping us to automate API tests. It helps with debugging of the APIs since it supports REST and SOAP troubleshooting. Additional plug in support and integration with GIT and Jenkins helps with CICD pipeline. Execution on multiple environments such as on datasource layer, integration layer and end to end layer has never been made so easy. One of the best open source API tool.

Pros

- Support calls to RESTful APIs - Easy script assertions and easy to debug web services and locate errors - Easy to use and implement, very user friendly interface - Additional Plugins available, Docker Support. - Integration with JENKINS and GIT. - OpenSource, free to use

Cons

- Performance issues, sometimes it is difficult to find if a request was sent. - Compiling errors before running should be inbuild for groovy scripting - Documentation needs to be improved. - Requires knowledge of groovy scripts in order to use it
