Set Up Connectors (For Notifications and Data)
You're viewing legacy documentation for API Fortress (deployed via an on-premises container). To view documentation for the new SaaS version of API Fortress — now known as Sauce Labs API Testing and Monitoring (with Sauce Connect tunnels) — see API Testing on the Sauce Labs Cloud.
Connectors are the way API Fortress integrates with other services and platforms to send data and/or notifications to them. A big benefit is how seamlessly API Fortress can be integrated into your day-to-day operations without disrupting workflows.
There are two levels of notification integrations:
- Failures Only Sends a notification only when a test failure happens; this is typical for stateless services such as Slack.
- Send All Sends all events, including successes; this is very handy when the service needs to log everything or alter a state.
