Performance Testing

Bard provides the ability to assert that the API responses are returned within a specified timeframe. This can be asserted at a test level or globally for an entire Scenario.

Individual API Call Assertion

The test below show an individual assertion for a specific end point.
public void The_slow_running_endpoint_should_return_within_two_seconds()
.LessThan(2000); // Time in milliseconds.

Global Configuration

The scenario configuration below demonstrates how to set a global benchmark for all API calls so that they do not exceed 2000 milliseconds.
var scenario = ScenarioConfiguration
.Configure(options =>
options.MaxApiResponseTime = 2000;
// Other configuration goes here..
