API testing tips?

So my team went over our latest project today, and we're building the APIs for a mobile app (mobile app itself will be outsourced). I've never tested this sort of thing before, so any tips to help with the testing would be much appreciated!

Some notes:

  • I'm the QA Analyst (I do the plans, cases, test strategy, etc) and do the manual testing. Is there even really any manual testing to do with just APIs?

  • I've pinpointed soapui and postman as potential test tools. Any others that are useful? Pros/cons?

  • Our automation engineer is planning to bypass Selenium interface and just work with C# directly with the APIs. Any pitfalls, things to consider, ideas, tips?

  • Any common stumbling blocks, errors, edge cases that come up with API testing?

Thanks in advance!
