SoapUI Tests

SoapUI is an open-source tool used for end-to-end testing of REST, SOAP and GraphQL APIs, as well as JMS, JDBC and other web services. Testkube supports the SoapUI executor implementation.

Running a SoapUI Test

In order to run a SoapUI test using Testkube, begin by creating a Testkube Test.

An example of an exported SoapUI test looks the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Using Files as Input

Testkube and the SoapUI executor accept a project file as input.

$ kubectl testkube create test --file example-project.xml --type soapui/xml --name example-test
Test created  / example-test 🥇

Using Strings as Input

$ cat example-project.xml | kubectl testkube create test --type soapui/xml --name example-test-string
Test created  / example-test-string 🥇

Running the Tests

To run the created test, use:

$ kubectl testkube run test example-test

Type          : soapui/xml
Name          : example-test
Execution ID  : 624eedd443ed8485ae9289e2
Execution name: illegally-credible-mouse



Test execution started

Watch test execution until complete:
$ kubectl testkube watch execution 624eedd443ed8485ae9289e2


Use following command to get test execution details:
$ kubectl testkube get execution 624eedd443ed8485ae9289e2

Using Parameters and Arguments in Your Tests

SoapUI lets you configure your test runs using different parameters. To see all available command line arguments, check the official SoapUI docs.

To use parameters when working with Testkube, use the kubectl testkube run command with the --args parameter.

An example would be:

$ kubectl testkube run test -f example-test --args '-I -c "Testkube TestCase"'

Type          : soapui/xml
Name          : successful-test
Execution ID  : 625404e5a4cc6d2861193c60
Execution name: currently-amused-pug
