🔥WebSocket API Support

Apidog's latest version supports debugging WebSocket API and is now available for public beta testing.

To create a WebSocket connection, click on the + button on the left sidebar and select New WebSocket API (Beta). Enter the URL of the WebSocket API and establish a connection to seamlessly send and receive messages. Customize the handshake by passing parameters like params, headers, and cookies to meet authentication and other complex scenarios.

Create New Websocket API

Once connected, you can draft under the Message tab. Besides writing messages in text, JSON, XML, HTML, and other text formats, binary messages can also be written using Base64 or hexadecimal.

Check out  Apidog Help Center to learn more about WebSocket API.

⚡️Upgraded Automation Testing Capabilities

The Iterations within automation testing now supports using variables to set the number of loops. This feature can set the number of loops based on the value of the API response, thus satisfying testing scenarios with a non-fixed number of loops.


Test steps now support referencing other test cases. Combine common test steps into a universal test case and reference it in other test cases to save time and facilitate updates and maintenance of universal steps.
