What is contract testing and why do you need it

Contract testing answers the question “will my API behave the way that we agree it should?”. A technique growing in popularity, it calms the chaos caused by complex, scaling microservices architectures. Here’s why companies like M1 Finance, Cera Care, Forto and Wesfarmers love contract testing:

How it works

Getting started is simple. You'll need to have both a PactFlow account (any plan) and a SwaggerHub Team or Enterprise account. You can set up and run the integration in 4 simple steps. Then you're ready to start contract testing in the SwaggerHub Editor:

Frequently Asked Questions

Contract testing provides an instant compatibility check so API designers can confirm changes to an API will not result in a breaking change to their consumers. Without this, teams must rely on other downstream teams and processes to catch breaking changes, and needlessly guard against backwards-incompatible changes in the API, leading to bloated APIs, excessive versioning and technical debt. Read the case for contract testing vs integration testing.

This integration enables the API provider to confirm their compatibility with their consumers using the OAS. The compatibility check can be completed instantly in the SwaggerHub Editor as the API designer creates or updates the specification or embedded in CI/CD pipelines. The integration is facilitated by PactFlow's bi-directional contract testing feature - read more here

Gate consumers from releasing unless they are compatible with a new API specification. When making changes to an existing API, instantly obtain feedback about the compatibility of the change with the consumers of the API.

Yes, you will need both a PactFlow and a SwaggerHub account to use this integration. All PactFlow plans are applicable with the integration – free Starter, Team and Enterprise plans. With SwaggerHub, you will need to be on a paid plan to use the integration.
