New: Plans Update

We are happy to inform you that as of September 19, 2020, we adjust the prices and the structure of our plans. In place of our old plan schema (Small, Medium, Large), we introduce the new ones: Starter, Team, Organization. We prepared the new plans’ portfolio to better fit our customers’ needs, addressing various organizational arrangements.

The new plans

All paid plans include an extended set of features that allow the customers to mock the HTTP server in the broad spectrum of use cases. The features include template mocks, dynamic mocks, proxy mocks, stateful behavior, and others.

The Starter plan is designed to bring value to the customers willing to try all SmartMock.io features but not needing high request capacity and the collaboration with the team members.

The Team plan is crafted for the development team and supports collaboration between its members. It delivers a much higher monthly request quota to support more complex architectures and use cases.

The Organization plan is supposed to fit the need of small and medium-sized organizations consisting of several teams. It provides the highest monthly request quota and the capacity to create up to 100 workspaces and 2000 mocks.

Are existing customers affected?

Accounts of the customers signed up for the paid plans are not affected by the change. They still have capabilities of the old plans (Small, Medium, Large). However, the subscription plan’s adjustment is possible only to one of the new plans (Starter, Team, Organization). You may adjust your subscription in the Plan & Billing view.

You look for something else?

If you don’t find the new plan schema suitable for you (need more capacity, dedicated tenancy, or a custom SLA), please contact our sales team at sales@smartmock.io.

If you have any questions, please contact our customer support at support@smartmock.io.

New: Template Mocks 2.0

moustache

After three months of development and testing, we are pleased to announce we released improved template mocks. A version 2.0 of template mocks runtime was rewritten from scratch to be faster, more efficient, and feature-rich. Besides using the latest version of Handlebars – a simple templating language, we also included our implementation of helper basing on the newest version (5.0.0) of faker.js – the library generating fake data. We also bundled into the runtime the extensive subset of handlebars-helpers. Embedded libraries enable our customers to generate a large amount of fake data and include conditional output rendering to simulate real services better. We trust this release is another step to make SmartMock.io the first choice HTTP server mock software for our customers.

Support for version 1.0

All clients using the previous version of the template mocks runtime may use both versions (1.0 and 2.0). We’ll still support version 1.0 until at least September 2022.

All accounts created after September 1st, 2020, may use version 2.0 only. If, for some reason, you find using version 1.0 critical for your use case, please contact our support at support@smartmock.io and ask us to enable version 1.0 for you.

Documentation and examples

We also published extensive documentation describing available helpers, state, and request fields access. We’ll keep that documentation up to date with further improvements in the runtime.

How to upgrade

To upgrade your template mocks using runtime of 1.0, you should perform the following actions:

  1. Edit your workspace, select version 2.0 of the template mocks, and save workspace changes.
  2. Adjust your mocks to use the helpers provided by version 2.0 – usually, it is an easy task, but if you have any questions, please contact our support at support@smartmock.io.

New: Proxy Mocks

Not so long ago, we released a new feature of SmartMock.io – Proxy mocks. Proxy mocks allow for selective forwarding of the HTTP requests to other systems. It means that for some criteria, defined by request matching, SmartMock.io may give static, template, dynamic, or failure response, and for other criteria, proxy the original request to some user-defined HTTP address. These may be your own mock services that you migrate to SmartMock.io or real services.

Proxy mocks also allow to:

  • override some original HTTP headers before being forwarded to the destination service
  • add custom response headers
  • setup custom request timeout towards the destination service

Proxy mocks open completely new possibilities for our customers. We already see adoption and the first extension requests that will be a subject of further evaluation.

Proxy mocks are available for all our paid plans. If you would like to know more check https://docs.smartmock.io/proxy-mocks/
