This article introduces what sprint branch is and how to use it in Apidog.

Maintaining and managing the consistency of endpoint projects can be a challenging task during rapid sprint development.

The sprint branch feature in Apidog is designed to offer a flexible mechanism for managing endpoint sprints. It allows team members to iteratively upgrade existing endpoints and swiftly develop new ones, all without disrupting other team members or affecting released endpoints.

Use Cases

  • Agile Endpoint Development

    The sprint branch feature allows developers to design and debug endpoints in isolated branches, ensuring the main branch remains stable. This separation ensures that testing and continuous integration processes are not disrupted, maintaining the consistency of the original endpoints until new versions are merged.

  • Agile Endpoint Testing

    In the sprint branch, updated endpoints are automatically flagged within testing scenarios. Testers can quickly duplicate, adjust, and execute automated tests for the endpoints to be tested within the sprint branch, ensuring that the changed endpoints pass the new testing tasks.

Key Features of Sprint Branches

  • Version Control

    Each sprint branch can be viewed as an independent version of the endpoint specification, including schemas, response components, and other data. Data between branches does not affect each other. You can create corresponding branches for different needs, separating production versions from development versions, ensuring the accuracy and consistency of the main branch.

  • Parallel Collaboration

    Different team roles can work concurrently on separate branches, enhancing work efficiency and collaboration flexibility without causing interference.

  • Quick Merging

    Once the functional development in a new branch is complete, developers can seamlessly merge the sprint branch back into the main branch, integrating new features without introducing unnecessary risks during updates.

  • Automatic Matching

    The sprint branch feature automatically identifies updated endpoints in the new branch and marks them in relevant testing scenarios. Testers can swiftly create test scenarios for the new or modified endpoints within the sprint branch, ensuring that all changes meet functional expectations.
