How this template works

APIs Selection

The API selection filters in this template specify the criteria for selecting the API to be tested. In this case, the filters include checking the response code to be greater than or equal to 200 and less than 300, and extracting the URL from the response to be used in the subsequent request.

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 "/actuator/configprops" to the extracted URL from the previous step.

Validation

The validation section defines the criteria for validating the response of the executed request. It checks that the response code is equal to 200 and that the response payload contains specific strings, such as "org.springframework.boot.actuate", "beans", and "contexts". If these criteria are met, the validation is considered successful.
