Using Swagger Documents

API documentation is important to guide the users on what they can do using specific APIs.

When you create a REST API artifact or a RESTful data service from WSO2 Integration Studio, a default Swagger definition is generated. For REST API artifacts, you can also attach an additional custom Swagger definition for the API.

Swagger documents of API artifacts

If your REST API is deployed, copy the following URLs (with your API details) to your browser:

Note

If you have a custom Swagger definition attached to the API, the following URLs will return the custom definition and not the default Swagger definition of the API.

  • To access the swagger.json file, use the following URL:

    http://<MI_HOST>:8290/<API_NAME>?swagger.json

    Example:

    http://localhost:8290/HealthcareAPI?swagger.json

  • To access the swagger.yaml file, use the following URL:

    http://<MI_HOST>:8290/<API_NAME>?swagger.yaml

    Example:

    http://localhost:8290/HealthcareAPI?swagger.yaml

Tip

  • Replace <MI_HOST> with localhost. If you are using a public IP, the respective IP address or domain needs to be specified.
  • Replace <API_NAME> with your API's name. The API name is case sensitive.

Swagger documents of RESTful data services

If your RESTful data service is deployed, copy the following URLs to your browser:

  • To access the swagger.json file, use the following URL:

    http://<MI_HOST>:8290/<DATA_SERVICE>?swagger.json

    Example:

    http://localhost:8290/RDBMSDataService?swagger.json

  • To access the swagger.yaml file, use the following URL:

    http://<MI_HOST>:8290/<DATA_SERVICE>?swagger.yaml

    Example:

    http://localhost:8290/RDBMSDataService?swagger.yaml

Tip

  • Replace <MI_HOST> with localhost. If you are using a public IP, the respective IP address or domain needs to be specified.
  • Replace <DATA_SERVICE> with your service name. The service name is case sensitive.
