Runscope is joining BlazeMeter

By Heitor Tashiro Sergent on .

For the past couple years, Runscope has gone through a lot of changes. We were acquired by CA Technologies back in September 2017, and CA Technologies was acquired by Broadcom in November 2018. Our team has grown, and we have worked hard on improving the product and adding features such as Secrets Management, Role-based Access Control, and more. We have also done a lot of work behind the scenes to improve our infrastructure, and have grown from running 300 million API calls a month to running 1.2 billion API calls a month.

Coming soon, there are going to be even bigger changes happening to Runscope. We are going to be joining BlazeMeter, a market-leading product for Load Testing and Performance Testing.

BlazeMeter is a company that was also acquired by CA Technologies, back in 2016, and is now a part of Broadcom. They have an amazing team and product, and we're really excited to be joining our API Monitoring capabilities and expertise with their Performance and Load Testing knowledge […]

New Runscope API Monitoring Locations with Google's Cloud Platform

New Runscope API Monitoring Locations with Google's Cloud Platform

By Heitor Tashiro Sergent on .

One of the biggest advantages of API monitoring is the ability to test and monitor your API from locations around the globe. This can help teams get an accurate measurement of the performance API users are seeing when working with their APIs, and help monitor and improve the user API experience.

That's why we offer multiple locations for our users to run their API tests from, and why we are excited to announce that we're expanding from 16 to 19 locations! The three new locations we've just added are:

  • US Iowa

  • US South Carolina

  • Finland

Another big part of this announcement is that […]

How To Send Runscope Webhook Notifications to Google Hangouts Chat with EventN

By Sam Aybar on .

I’ve written before about how you can use webhooks with Runscope to extend the functionality of Runscope. In case you missed that post, Runscope has a number of built-in integrations, but some users want custom notifications with apps that we may not currently support. Webhook notifications are POST requests that are made at the completion of a test, and include a payload with details about the test run. If you can listen for these notifications, you can write your own code to deliver Runscope notifications anywhere that has an API you can use.

One service we don’t yet have a built-in integration is Google Hangouts Chat, the GSuite tool that facilitates group communication. In this blog post, I am going to describe how you can integrate Runscope with Hangouts Chat so you can get your team notified about Runscope tests in this GSuite tool.

Here is a snippet of what the webhook […]

New Feature Roundup

New Feature Roundup

By Heitor Tashiro Sergent on .

In this post we wanted to do a quick recap of some of the features we have launched in recent months that you might have missed.

A lot of our work has been behind the scenes, making sure our infrastructure is able to support the growing number of API calls being made through Runscope. We're at a point now where our systems are running over 880,000,000 API calls a month! That's 880 million, or an average of over 29 million API calls a day!

Besides the infrastructure work, we have also released 5 user-facing features in the past few months that we would like to highlight here […]

Keeping Sensitive Information Secure with Secrets Management

Keeping Sensitive Information Secure with Secrets Management

By Heitor Tashiro Sergent on .

We are very excited to announce a new feature for our enterprise customers: secrets management! Users can now easily create and manage sensitive information, such as API key or access tokens, and include them in their API monitors without exposing them in test results or 3rd-party integrations.

This feature request has been brought to us by a few customers, especially ones in highly regulated spaces such as finance, or healthcare, but we believe all of our enterprise customers will be able to benefit from it. Here at Runscope, we take extreme care with the security of our users' information, and we also like to provide tools for customers that will help them maintain any security standards they might have internally.

So, how does secrets management work?
