Testing OpenAPI definitions for better and consistent APIs

In this tutorial, we will discuss how we test API definitions in OpenAPI at Postman. We will cover the objectives of testing, which include ensuring correct structure, completeness, consistency, uniformity, style, and documentation. Additionally, we will explore the tool used for testing, Spectral, and where testing fits in our software delivery lifecycle. Furthermore, we will discuss the challenges we faced, such as testing the tests, scaling the number of tests, and scaling the number of engineering teams involved, and how we overcame them.
