Forward 3-rd Party Request Manually to Debug and Test Webhooks

Forward 3-rd Party Request Manually to Debug and Test Webhooks

2021-02-24

As you might know already, QuickMocker provides a really great and unique feature called Local Forwarder that can capture and forward requests automatically from the 3-rd party services to your server app in order to debug and test webhooks even on the local machine that does not have any public URL. No need to install any 3-rd party extensions or apps because QuickMocker’s Local Forwarder works on the browser level.

In the first release of this feature it was working only in the “automatic mode” which means that requests were forwarded to your app’s webhook right after they were triggered by the 3-rd party service and intercepted by QuickMocker. The “automatic mode” was and is very dependent on the events that should occur on the 3-rd party side and that’s why sometimes it was difficult to use Local Forwarder, especially when you needed the same request to be sent multiple times to your app.

Search and filter request log records

Search and filter request log records

2021-03-30

Recently, after a few months of work, we have completed another cool feature that allows Expert mockers to search and filter request log records. Yes, probably you’ve guessed already that this is a premium subscription plan feature, because it does require extra resources and therefore we cannot provide it to everyone at the moment, though we do plan this in future.

Every mocker who owns an Expert subscription is able to filter log records by HTTP method(s), HTTP status code(s), URL Path (URI), date and finally by request or response text. As you might know already, each expert plan can contain up to 50000 records in the log and filtering/searching request records from the past might be crucial for many developers.

Import Response Body with Shortcodes Suggestions from OpenAPI Schema

Import Response Body with Shortcodes Suggestions from OpenAPI Schema

2021-02-23

Introducing an improvement for OpenAPI / Swagger endpoints integration. Now you can import not only endpoints with its HTTP method, URI, HTTP status, content type and description. Now you have a new option to import the response body from the OpenAPI model schema / definitions.

But we did not stop on this and went even a bit further. During the import, QuickMocker will try to guess an appropriate shortcode for each property of the model, so the response will become more dynamic. Currently it is using 3 methods to guess the shortcode:

Fake API Endpoint Cloning

QuickMocker continues to improve the user experience by adding on one hand simple, but on another hand pretty useful features that could be used from day to day work in order to speed up the API mocking process. One of those nice features is Endpoint Cloning that could be done just with a simple click.

We’ve received multiple requests about the cloning of the mock API endpoints. So, here it is! :)

QuickMocker added Monaco Editor for code editing

QuickMocker added Monaco Editor for code editing

2021-01-30

QuickMocker has recently introduced several UI/UX improvements and one of the most important is an embedded Monaco Editor for code related fields. For your information, Monaco is a code editor that is used in the VS Code and distributed under the MIT license.

From now on you may edit your fake API or dummy API endpoint’s response headers and body in a very familiar way for you. Just the same as you are writing code in your favourite code editor. Mouse right click for the context menu or use keyboard shortcuts like F1 for accessing commands list menu, Ctrl+Shift+I for automatic code formatting etc. Monaco editor has been also added to the OpenAPI import modal where you can paste Specifications JSON schema in order to create your stub API endpoints in bulk.

Import API endpoints from OpenAPI or Swagger Specifications

Import API endpoints from OpenAPI or Swagger Specifications

2021-01-25

As of yesterday QuickMocker supports import of API endpoints from OpenAPI (formerly Swagger) Specifications, particularly from its JSON schema. This means that the API mocking becomes even quicker and simpler. Just get the OpenAPI JSON schema from the software engineers or 3rd parties that are responsible for the API or web services development and restore all the endpoints inside the QuickMocker in seconds.

In other words now QuickMocker has a possibility to create API mocks in bulk. During the import process, our online API tool provides a nice preview of the endpoint to be imported with several options that might be useful. First of all you may choose the default response content type in case Swagger specification is missing it. Also you may select the HTTP response status code detection method. And finally make a call between grouping multiple HTTP methods in a fake endpoint by URL path or create each endpoint with a single HTTP method.

Subscription Plans Upgrades: New Features and Quotas Increase

2020-12-20

Holidays are really close and this is a perfect time for presents. So, we have prepared great presents for everyone who is using or willing to use QuickMocker by adding more features and increasing our free and premium quotas or limits.

First of all, we have moved multiple premium features of Expret plan to Advanced and Free Subscription Plans. Therefore, now you can:

  • Add endpoint(s) IP address(es) restriction: allows requests only from specific IP address(es)
  • Add Authorization Header restriction: allow requests only if the requests header includes provided Authorization Header.
  • Requests Proxy: proxy requests from your endpoint to any external URL
New Shortcodes: Dynamic or Fake Response Values

New Shortcodes: Dynamic or Fake Response Values

2020-12-18

Sooner than expected, we are introducing approximately 100 shortcodes additionally to the request related shortcodes that were already inside QuickMocker. Most of the new shortcodes are related to the fake random data. They are separated into the following groups:

  • Request Related (Contextual)
  • Boolean and Numbers
  • Text (Lorem and real)
  • User Profile (e.g. name, email, company data, address related info etc.)
  • Internet
  • Finance (Payment)
  • Date and Time
  • Hash
  • File
  • Color
  • Other
New Feature - Cache Response Body

New Feature - Cache Response Body

2020-12-17

We have developed and released a new feature called "Cache Response Body". This is a perfect solution for those who use shortcodes and especially fake random shortcodes which generate new data inside the response body on every request.

You can simply turn it on while creating or editing your endpoint, right below the response body field. By turning this cache property on, your data becomes static and won't be changed on the subsequent requests. It will be a really useful feature for those who use QuickMocker on a daily basis while developing both back-end and front-end applications, because your fake random data will stay the same as it was after each request.

2020-10-17

Finally we have completed the work on our second subscription plan called Advanced. This subscription plan allows you to remove most of the limits from our service usage and adds more features for you.

First of all now you may create up to 5 projects with no limitation for its endpoints, regular expressions, dynamic response properties and so forth. With Advanced plan you can perform up to 1000 requests per day witout any monthly limitation. Most likely this will be more than enough for all of your team or even company. The request log allows to store up to 5000 records for 2 months.

Regarding the new features. Now you can update or remove existing projects. So in case you have 5 projects and want to add another, you may simply drop one of your previous projects. But the main feature here is that you can set your own custom subdomain name, e.g. mydomain.api.quickmocker.com.

QuickMocker Released

QuickMocker Released

2020-05-08

Hey there and great to see you! This is the place where you'll be able to read our latest updates about the product and its features.

Just a quick heads-up on what is QuickMocker. It is a cloud-based online API mocking tool which is here to help you to mock your future and/or existing web services or in other words simply to "fake" your API. Our primary goal is to provide a solution for mocking RESTful services (API), but it does not mean that you cannot mock XML-RPC or SOAP web service :)

We support the following HTTP methods: 'GET', 'HEAD', 'POST', 'PUT', 'PATCH', 'DELETE', 'OPTIONS'. And we support any response format you like, for instance XML, JSON, JSONP or whatever else you want. You have a full control over the endpoint response headers and body. 

Obviously there are a number of existing solutions which are similar to this. So, what’s the crack?
