How this template works

APIs Selection

The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the API requests to be executed. In this case, the filters include the response code range (between 200 and 300) and the extraction of the URL into a variable called "urlVar".

Execute request

The execute section defines the type of request to be executed, which is a single request in this case. It also specifies the request to be made, which includes modifying the URL by appending "/Dockerrun.aws.json" to the value of the "urlVar" variable.

Validation

The validation section defines the criteria for validating the response of the executed request. It includes checking the response code to be within the range of 200 to 300 and ensuring that the response payload contains specific keywords like "AWSEBDockerrunVersion" and "containerDefinitions".
