Overview

A mock server allows you to emulate your API’s behavior without the need for configuring an actual API server. Utilizing a OneTab Collection, you can establish a mock server. Upon sending a request to the mock server, OneTab generates a response based on the extracted data from your collection.

Get Started with Mock Servers in OneTab

To initiate the use of mock servers in OneTab, begin by assembling a collection that includes the API requests you aim to replicate by including saved instances for each request containing the data you desire the mock server to provide in response to these requests.

Once your collection is complete, proceed to establish a new mock server. Afterward, you can utilize OneAPI to make calls to the mock server. This server imitates the behavior of your API, allowing you to conduct API testing or develop new functionalities before your API is fully operational.

Level Up with Step-by-Step Resources

To begin with mock servers in OneTab, start by compiling a collection of the API requests you aim to mock. Then, incorporate stored examples into each request. These examples contain the data you desire the mock server to furnish in response to each request.

Once your collection is complete, proceed to establish a new mock server. Subsequently, you can initiate calls to the mock server via OneTab or a client application. The mock server emulates the behavior of your API, facilitating the testing of your API or the development of new features before it reaches production readiness.
