Current work in progress

The following features are in progress, and will be released soon...

Plugins, gRPC and Protobuf support

Bi-directional contracts with Open API Specification (Q1 2021 - available in developer preview)

We're adding support for a new model of contract testing: allowing teams to generate contracts from consumers and providers, and integrating with Open API Specification (OAS/Swagger). Our goals with this new approach are to:

  1. Expand the breadth of technology we can support (e.g. OAS, GraphQL, Protobufs, API Gateways etc.)
  2. Reduce the time-to-value of contract testing
  3. Simplify the adoption and scaling of contract testing
  4. Expand the types of ways a contract may be generated or verified, and allow the use of BYO tools (e.g. record/replay or instrumentation approaches to creating contracts, or tools such Cypress, MSW, Mountebank, Wiremock, Hoverfly and other such mocking tools)
  5. Expand the roles that can contribute to contract testing (such as Testers)

The first release is now available in developer preview (docs) and we are currently seeking feedback from our customers.

OAuth2 Support in Pactflow on-premises edition

Permission to set contract visibility based on team

We're adding a new permission to scope contract visibility to your team. This is useful in high security environments, and in use cases where you may involve third parties in a particular project, but don't want them to have visibility of your entire system.
