Overview

API checks consist of two parts:

1. An HTTP request

This is where you configure the method, body, headers etc. which determines the response sent back by your API.

2. One or more assertions

This is where you determine whether the response of the HTTP request is correct or within acceptable bounds.

These two phases are executed under the hood by the Node.js request library and the chai.js assertions library. All checks are executed on Amazon’s AWS Lambda infrastructure.
