You may be thinking, what’s the harm? Here’s why it makes a difference—and why you should choose another tool for API testing.

Glass bottlenecks Dealing with a Test Automation Bottleneck

The test team uses the test automation system to execute thousands of test cases because … why not? The tests are running automatically, for free, so there is no incentive to improve test efficiency. Just run them all! But eventually, as more and more tests are added, the system becomes overloaded. Test runs are delayed and you get a bottleneck. Don't throw more money—or new systems—at the problem; do this instead.
