kandi X-RAY | OpenAPI-Specification Summary

OpenAPI-Specification is a JavaScript library typically used in Web Services, REST, Swagger applications. OpenAPI-Specification has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.

The OpenAPI Specification is a community-driven open specification within the OpenAPI Initiative, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project. The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) defines a standard, programming language-agnostic interface description for HTTP APIs, which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of a service without requiring access to source code, additional documentation, or inspection of network traffic. When properly defined via OpenAPI, a consumer can understand and interact with the remote service with a minimal amount of implementation logic. Similar to what interface descriptions have done for lower-level programming, the OpenAPI Specification removes guesswork in calling a service. Use cases for machine-readable API definition documents include, but are not limited to: interactive documentation; code generation for documentation, clients, and servers; and automation of test cases. OpenAPI documents describe an APIs services and are represented in either YAML or JSON formats. These documents may either be produced and served statically or be generated dynamically from an application. The OpenAPI Specification does not require rewriting existing APIs. It does not require binding any software to a service – the service being described may not even be owned by the creator of its description. It does, however, require the capabilities of the service be described in the structure of the OpenAPI Specification. Not all services can be described by OpenAPI – this specification is not intended to cover every possible style of HTTP APIs, but does include support for REST APIs. The OpenAPI Specification does not mandate a specific development process such as design-first or code-first. It does facilitate either technique by establishing clear interactions with a HTTP API. This GitHub project is the starting point for OpenAPI. Here you will find the information you need about the OpenAPI Specification, simple examples of what it looks like, and some general information regarding the project.

            DocuSign Admin API OpenAPI / SDK
            Asked 2021-Jun-07 at 14:19

            I'm using the DocuSign eSignature API, and am generating client code with the help of the openapi codegen (via these

            Now I have to use the DocuSign Manage API (, too, but I can't find any Swagger / OpenAPI definition for that?

            Is it somewhere hidden, does it not exists, and are there plans to make it available at one point? Are there any other options, SDKs, anything or do I have to make these calls "manually"?



            Answered 2021-Jun-07 at 14:19

            Unfortunately, the Swagger file for the Admin API is not yet available. That's also why DocuSign doesn't yet have SDKs for the API yet. I don't have access to any scheduling information on it.

            I suggest that you handle any Admin API calls you need to do manually for now.

            What language are you creating SDKs for with CodeGen? (Please answer in a comment or by editing your original question.)

            Are those OpenAPI 3 paths ambiguous?
            Asked 2021-May-04 at 10:22

            Are those OpenAPI 3 paths ambiguous?



            Answered 2021-May-04 at 10:22

            My reading of the spec is that they are not ambiguous, because one is more concrete than the other. The more concrete one takes precedence if the {petId} parameter value is set to _search.



            How to use inherited classes with API-Platform
            Asked 2021-Mar-30 at 12:05

            I wish to use API-Platform to perform CRUD operations on object hierarchy classes. I found little written when using inherited classes with API-Platform and some but not much more when used with Symfony's serializer, and am looking for better direction on what needs to be implemented differently specifically for inherited classes.

            Let's say I have Dog, Cat, and Mouse inherited from Animal where Animal is abstract (see below). These entities have been created using bin/console make:entity, and have only been modified to extend the parent class (as well as their respective repositories) and to have Api-Platform annotation added.

            How should groups be used with inherited classes? Should each of the child classes (i.e. Dog, Cat, Mouse) have their own group or should just the parent animal group be used? When using the animal group for all, some routes respond with The total number of joined relations has exceeded the specified maximum. ..., and when mixed, sometimes get Association name expected, 'miceEaten' is not an association.. Will these groups also allow ApiPropertys on the parent apply to the child entities (i.e. Animal::weight has a default openapi_context example value of 1000)?

            API-Platform does not discuss CTI or STI and the only relevant reference I found in the documentation was regarding MappedSuperclass. Need a MappedSuperclass be used in addition to CLI or STI? Note that I tried applying MappedSuperclass to Animal, but received an error as expected.

            Based on this post as well as others, it appears that the preferred RESTful implementation is to use a single endpoint /animals instead of individual /dogs, /cats, and /mice. Agree? How could this be implemented with API-Platform? If the @ApiResource() annotation is applied only to Animal, I get this single desired URL but don't get the child properties for Dog, Cat, and Mouse in the OpenAPI Swagger documentation nor the actual request. If the @ApiResource() annotation is applied only to Dog, Cat, and Mouse, then there is no way to get a combined collection of all animals and I have multiple endpoints. Need it be applied to all three? It appears that OpenApi's key words oneOf, allOf, and anyOf might provide a solution as described by this stackoverflow answer as well as this Open-Api specification. Does Api-Platform support this and if so how?




            Answered 2021-Mar-30 at 12:05

            I don't think a reputable source is available on this subject but i do have long experience with frameworks, abstract user interfaces and php and created MetaClass Tutorial Api Platform so i will try to answer your question myself.

            The tutorial aims to cover the common ground of most CRUD and Search apps for both an api platform api and a react client generated with the api platform client generator. The tutorial does not cover inheritance and polymorphism because i do not think it occurs in many CRUD and Search apps but it adresses many aspects that do, for an overview see the list of chapters in the readme of the master branch. Api Platform offers a lot of generic functionality for the api of such apps out of the box that only needs to be configured for specific resources and operations. In the react branches this led to recurring patterns and refactoring into common components and eventually to an extended react client generator to accompany the tutorial. The scheme of serialization groups in this answer is a bit more generic because my understanding of the subject has improved over time.

            Your classes worked out of the box on Api Platform 2.6 except for the repository classes that where not included. I removed them from the annotation as right now none of their specific methods seem to be called. You can allways add them again when your need them.

            Against the common preference for REST in general to use a single endpoint /animals i chose for individual ones for /dogs, /cats, and /mice because:

            1. Api Platform identifies instances of resource classes by iri's that refer to these specific endpoints and inludes them as values of @id whenever these instances are serialized. The client generater, and i suppose the admin client too, depend on these endpoints to work for crud operations,
            2. With Api Platform specific post operations work out of the box with doctrine orm. An endpoint /animals would require a custom Denormalizer that can decide which concrete class to instantiate.
            3. With serialization groups specific end points give more control over serializations. Without that is it hard to get serialization compatible with the way it is done in chapter 4 of the tutorial,
            4. In many of the extension points of Api Platform it is easy to make things work for a spefic resource and all examples in the docs make use of that. Making them specific for the actual concrete subclass of the object at hand is undocumented and may not allways be possible.

            I only include the /animals get collection operation because that allows the client to retrieve, search and sort a polymophic collection of animals in a single request.

            In line with chapter 4 of the tutorial i removed the write annotation groups. Api Platforms deserialization already allows the client to only include those properties with post, put and patch that hold data and are meant be set, so the only purpose of deserialization groups can be to disallow certain properties to be set through (certain operations of) the api or to allow the creation of related objects through nested documents. When i tried to add a new cat by posting it as value of $ateByCat of a mouse i got error "Nested documents for attribute "ateByCat" are not allowed. Use IRIs instead." The same happened with adding one through Dog::$catsChased, so security by operation with certain roles granted does not seem to be compromised without write annotation groups. Seems like a sound default to me.

            I added a ::getLabel method to Animal to represent each by a single string (annotated as Basic CRUD and Search clients primarily show a single type of entities to the user and represent related entities this way. Having a specific property is more convenient for the client and making it a derived property is more flexible then then adding different properties depending on the type of entity. The label property is the only property that is added to the "related" group. This group is added to the normalization context of each type so that for the "get" operations of Cat, Doc and Mouse it is the only property serialized for related objects:



            OpenAPI: Can you use sub-components inside examples?
            Asked 2021-Mar-26 at 03:12

            OpenAPI version: 3.0.1.

            I'm working on the examples-section of an OpenAPI-specification.

            I am familiar with components, and I know that I can define examples-components that are to be used at root level. For instance:



            Answered 2021-Mar-26 at 03:12
            example does not support using $ref in this manner.

            From this bug thread:

            What we meant here (and if needed, can clarify further) is that the value given here is the actual value of the example. It is not to be further parsed by tooling. So documentation or mocking services should not try to parse the $ref's before further 'using' them.

            The reason behind is exactly $ref's. We can't distinguish when the end user would want to use $ref as a resolved reference and when they'd want to use it as a literal value (which is a very valid case). As such, we decided that the examples would be non-parsed literal values. At the moment, there's no way to have parsable examples, as external examples are literal values as well.



            How to extract the operationId from an OpenAPI spec using JQ
            Asked 2021-Feb-27 at 13:30

            The OpenAPI spec defines operationId as child element of the method (GET, POST) of a path (e.g /customers ) which is a child of path. As dot notation it would look like:

            From you description, you only want the operationId values under .path, so you could write:

            Answered 2021-Feb-01 at 07:46

            The contents provided by the toString() method is some convenience feature for the developer. It does not necessarily produce valid JSON representation of the object. You should use a JSON serializer to serialize your JAVA object into a JSON string. This can for example be done with the help of the Gson library.

            Call an existing API using Loopback 4
            Asked 2020-Sep-12 at 15:54

            I have a pre-developed API connected to my backend. I am using loopback 4 as a data provider for my react application. I want to call the API using Loopback and get the result in my application. I went through the loopback 4 documentation calling other API's but found it a bit confusing. Data returned by my API is :
            { "name": "xyz", "place": "xyz", "email": "xyz" }

            I want this data to be returned to my application using Loopback. I do not want to make a direct API call from my React application. I want Loopback to make all the API calls.
            Any help is much appreciated.



            Answered 2020-Sep-12 at 09:09

            A LoopBack 4 application is still a Node.js application. Hence, you can make the request directly in the Controller via the built-in http module, or by importing another package (e.g. request).

            From there, the result can be mutated (if needed) then returned within the Controller.

            If API is commonly-used across numerous Controllers, then it is recommended to refactor the requests behind a Service. Services benefit from being bootable at runtime via this.boot() and injectable into controllers using @inject or @service.
