Functionize uses a webpage to format API test cases as they are created to ensure everything works properly. Open the link and work through the API test case as the test plan is built. Once the API test plan is written, there is no need to visit the page again, however, Functionize will open the page to duplicate the actions. This system allows a user to create API test cases using plain English, with no technical experience.
