What are Zebra IDE and Zebra YAML?

These two scripting tools are both installed by the Zebra Scripting Tool (formerly called Apica Scripting Tool/AST):

  • Zebra IDE is the web-based graphical scripting tool.
    • Ideal for performance and load testing web application responses or API-driven applications.
  • Zebra YAML is the non-graphical command-line scripting tool.
    • Ideal for creating DevOps style load testing scripts (without a need for a rich GUI UI or where passing through a web proxy could interfere with scripting).

Together, these tools offer a range of features to make your load testing scripting easier.

They both produce Zebra Scripts can be used for either Apica Load Testing (ALT) or Apica Synthetic Monitoring (ASM).
