In this video, you are given a challenge that requires you put into practice everything you have learned so far in order to find 500 errors in a sample application.
- [Narrator] Okay I think it's time for another challenge.…You've been learning a lot about API testing,…so let's take a few minutes to try and put it into action.…The challenge that I have here is called the Find the 500.…And what you'll need to do is find some 500 errors…that I've hidden in the sample API.…To successfully solve this challenge,…you're going to need to use post put,…delete, and git calls as you investigate this.…So it should help you put into practice…everything we've been talking about so far.…If you've already followed the instructions…in the setup video for setting up the challenges,…you should be able to start the server by…going into the directory that you've cloned everything.…
So I'm in here.…API testing foundations.…And then just start it by calling node…and then find the 500 server.js…and just hit enter and they'll start the server up for you.…And then you can take this URL…and that's your base URL for the testing challenge.…So you can use that in Postman…or whatever tool you're looking at to test the API.…
