Workshop Topic: How I Use JQ in My Testing


This is a session about analysis. Every tester must be able to discover and sort through the elements of the products that they test. What is this product made of? What are its functions? How does it process data? So many of us are testing in the cloud, these days, that we need good ways of analyzing web-based apps, especially. One of the keys to analyzing web apps is dealing with JSONs.

In this session, I’m going to show you a tool that I use a lot: JQ. I use it to help me extract and wrangle test data about the traffic moving between the client and server, as well as to explore JSONs that are sent down to populate screens in the front end. I will provide a little cheat sheet of my favorite JQ command-lines to get you started.
