Create Your First Mock

This tutorial shows you how to create a workspace and a mock, and test that mock.


  • Sign in and log in to
  • (Optional) Install curl tool development machine

Create a workspace

Before creating a mock, you need a workspace. A workspace has a unique subdomain assigned and is a container for mocks. Go to the Dashboard section and click Create/Import -> New Blank Workspace.

  • In the Name field, enter the descriptive name of a workspace, for instance, Order Manager.
  • In the Domain field, enter the name of the subdomain you'll use to access your workspace. Please note that the subdomain may contain letters, digits, and hyphens. You may also generate a new random name. Your workspace's subdomain must be globally unique.
  • In the Team field, select a team. Every workspace created must belong to only one team.
  • In the Template Mocks Runtime Version and Dynamic Mocks Runtime Version fields, select the values marked as current.
  • Click Create.

Workspace Form

Create a New Mock

  • Click the workspace created in the previous step (Dashboard section).
  • Click Create Mock.
  • Enter a descriptive name for the mock. For instance, Returns order by ID.
  • In the Path field put /api/v1/order/{orderId}.
  • Leave HTTP method set to GET.
  • In the Content Type field select application/json.
  • Select Template Mock (more details).
  • Leave the Status field value as 200 - OK.
  • In the Content Type field put application/json
  • Set the following code in the Response Body Template field:
    "id" : "{{req.pathParams.[orderId]}}",
    "description" : "Star Wars DVD - exclusive collection",
    "status" : "DELIVERED",
    "deliveryReference" : "{{randomUuid}}",
    "deliveryAddress" : {
        "name" : "{{faker 'name.firstName'}}",
        "surname" : "{{faker 'name.lastName'}}",
        "street" : "{{faker 'address.streetName'}}",
        "streetNumber" : "{{randomNumber min=10 max=100}}",
        "city" : "{{faker ''}}",
        "zipCode" : "{{faker 'address.zipCode'}}"
    "created" : "{{now format='YYYY-MM-DD[T]HH:mm:ss[Z]' offset='-1 hours' timezone='UTC'}}",
    "updated" : "{{now format='YYYY-MM-DD[T]HH:mm:ss[Z]' offset='-20 minutes' timezone='UTC'}}"
  • Click Save. You'll be redirected back to the Workspace Details view.

Mock Form

After the mock is saved, it's immediately available for service consumers.

Test the Mock

  • In the New Mock view, click the Test request button.
  • Put /api/v1/order/1234 into the URL field.
  • Enter application/json in Content Type field.
  • Click Send.

You should see the output of the test (request, response, rendering logs).

Test Workspace

Test the Mock (curl)

It's also possible to test the mock from your development machine using the curl tool.

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json"

You will see a similar output:

    "id" : "1234",
    "description" : "Star Wars DVD - exclusive collection",
    "status" : "DELIVERED",
    "deliveryReference" : "6a3d23da-f8ed-49e4-9d05-5d02336bdf08",
    "deliveryAddress" : {
        "name" : "Elwin",
        "surname" : "Kuphal",
        "street" : "Sienna Valley",
        "streetNumber" : "39",
        "city" : "Lake Judsonton",
        "zipCode" : "14636"
    "created" : "2018-10-08T04:29:46Z",
    "updated" : "2018-10-08T05:09:46Z"
