The Public REST API

Jenkins is a very popular tool to orchestrate and administer build and release pipelines. Test automation is growing into a tool like Jenkins, and the community around Leaptest has build a native Jenkins plugin, that makes it very simple to trigger test cases in Leaptest to run.

The LEAPWORK Automation Platform is built on a public REST API that you can easily explore and integrate with other systems such as software build systems, bug-tracking tools and much more.

The API is hosted on the Controller, by default on port 9000. The easiest way to get started is to use the browser-based REST API explorer, which is located on http://{controller}:9000/help/index:


From there, it’s possible to dig into each part of the API and try it out. For instance, to understand how to get a list of Projects, use the “Projects” endpoint:


The REST API can be used to control all aspects of the LEAPWORK Automation Platform, including triggering automation runs and polling for results.

The in-line documentation for the API is currently a work in progress. If you have any questions, please contact priority support on:
