I am trying to save my test class for a Rest a webservice (GET) but get the error Illegal assignment from void to String on line 16. If I change the void to string I get a missing return statement string error.

Could someone explain my error?

Testclass

@IsTest
private class InvoiceManagerTest {
    //GET
    @isTest static string testGetInvoice() {
        Invoice__c invoice = createInvoice();
        String query = '?customerId='+ invoice.customerId__c + '&month=' + invoice.invoiceDate__c.month();
        // Set up a test request
        RestRequest request = new RestRequest();
        request.requestUri =
            'https://aaXX.salesforce.com/services/apexrest/invoices/'+
            query;

        request.httpMethod = 'GET';
        RestContext.request = request;
        // Call the method to test
        string thisInvoice = InvoiceManager.getInvoice();
        // Verify results
        System.assert(thisInvoice != null);
        System.assertEquals(
            ' {'+
        '"customerId": "1",'+
        '"addressId": "2018AA12",'+

By my count this:

string thisInvoice = InvoiceManager.getInvoice();

is line 16 which means the getInvoice method (you have not posted) returns void.

You may find that rather than returning a value it is setting the result in the RestContext.response static field and your test can get the value from there:

InvoiceManager.getInvoice();
string thisInvoice = RestContext.response.responseBody.toString();
