RapidAPI Studio is a tightly-integrated set of tools used used by API providers to build, test, publish, and manage high-quality APIs. RapidAPI Studio especially excels at providing important tools for teams that build and maintain complex APIs of many types (REST, SOAP, GraphQL, etc.).

RapidAPI Studio's primary tools include the following:

Requests - This is a team-based API request client. Teams can create groups of requests that can be easily parameterized for different environments and contexts. The groups of requests are automatically synchronized in multiple clients, including RapidAPI Studio, the Mac-native RapidAPI Client, and the RapidAPI Client VS Code extension. Groups of requests can reside in separate branches, enabling members of teams to do things like experiment with requests before adding them to the team's main branch. For more information on Requests in RapidAPI Studio, see API Requests - Overview.

RapidAPI Testing (Tests) - RapidAPI Testing enables you to easily convert your API requests into API tests. These tests can be used to verify the API contract (for example, an OAS document or GraphQL Schema) as you commit changes to your API. You can also use RapidAPI Testing to monitor your API, verifying that it continues to function properly over time. For more information on RapidAPI Testing, see API Testing - Overview.

Hub Listing - This enables you to do things like describe and define your API, invite developers and teams to consume your API, create API plans, view usage analytics, and publish your API to the API Hub. For more information on Hub Listing, see Hub Listing - Overview.

Message Center - The Message Center is a single location for you to view all of the announcements, discussions, and direct messages to and from your API consumers. This location applies for all APIs in which you are provider, whether you own the API in your personal account or own them as part of a team. For more information, see RapidAPI Studio - Message Center.
