There's mounting pressure on software companies to automate their API tests. The more complex the test, the higher the pressure. You can no longer get away with manual plans for integration tests that mimic entire user journeys and involve inter-dependent requests to dozens of endpoints.
The problem is, as we keep hearing from test engineers and test leads that relevant products currently on the market are just not getting the job done. They find it really difficult to manage different environments, use specific methods of authentication, integrate tests into CI/CD pipelines, or generate proper reports. Apparently the lack of reusability alone (...of requests, test cases, preparation steps, etc.) is such a turn-off, that they resort to borrowing developers to have the tests coded in Java, Python, or some other programming language.
One major drawback is, well, developers are expensive, and their managers would be much happier if their time was spent on product building. If only there was another way - to create and maintain sophisticated integration tests - without coding.
This is where CRANQ enters the picture. CRANQ looks like no-code-ing, but under the hood, it is coding. It's friendly enough for even manual testers to hit the ground running, but capable of expressing the granularity that comes with tests coded by developers.
CRANQ equals: manual testers acing automation
