By John Sheehan on .

API testing and monitoring has traditionally focused solely on outbound requests that simulate what a client of a particular API or endpoint would experience. But APIs are increasingly becoming a two-way conversation, with data flowing into apps asynchronously based on events happening (e.g. GitHub commits, Twilio text messages received, bots receiving requests, etc.).
