How to check the SoapUI version?

SoapUI is a widely used software testing tool for web services and APIs. It allows users to create, execute, and analyze test cases, ensuring the functionality, reliability, and performance of these digital interfaces.

Knowing the SoapUI version is crucial for compatibility, troubleshooting, and accessing the latest features and updates, ensuring efficient and effective API testing and management in line with current requirements.

To check the version of SoapUI, you can follow these steps:

  • Launch SoapUI: Open SoapUI on your computer.
  • Check the Title Bar: Look at the title bar of the SoapUI application window. In most cases, the version number is displayed there. It usually appears as “SoapUI [Version Number]”. For example, “SoapUI 5.6.0” or “SoapUI Pro 2021.1”.
  • About or Help Menu (if applicable): Some software applications include version information in the “About” or “Help” menu. Check if SoapUI has an “About” or “Help” option in its menu bar, and then click on it. A window should pop up displaying version information along with other details about the software.
  • Command Line (Pro Version): If you’re using SoapUI Pro and are comfortable with the command line, you can use the following command to check the version: testrunner.bat -v
  • This command will display the version information in the command prompt or terminal.
  • Check Documentation: If you have access to SoapUI documentation or release notes, you can refer to those resources. The documentation often includes version information and details about the latest updates and features.
  • Check Installation Folder: If none of the above methods work, you can navigate to the installation folder where SoapUI is installed on your computer. Inside this folder, you might find a file like “version.txt” or a similarly named file that contains version information.

Keep in mind that the specific method for checking the version may vary depending on the operating system and the version of SoapUI you are using. Typically, the version information should be relatively easy to locate using one of the methods mentioned above.
