Since Scribe launched the Request/Reply functionality, it’s hard for me to think of any project where it couldn’t be used. For those of you who don’t have any idea what I’m talking about: Scribe Online Request/Reply offers the capability to create you own WebApi without any coding. With just a few clicks, you are able to get a url and define any (complex) logic behind. If you want to read more on Scribe Online Request/Reply, check out this blog post by Paul Varley.
With the ability to create and customize your own WebApi rapidly, the need for a specification about your API grows. Especially when you provide the API to customers or partners. Lucky for us, someone thought of this. The world of API’s has embraced an open standard for API specifications. This standard – formerly know as Swagger – is called OpenAPI Specification. You can read all about it at https://swagger.io/.
This is where the fun part starts, cause it’s so-so-simple! When you create your Request/Reply, you get the endpoint url. Let’s say it’s like this:https://endpoint.scribesoft.com/v1/orgs/123456/requests/1234?accesstoken=XYZNow in order to get the OpenAPI Specification, all you need to do is to add ‘/api-docs’ at the end of your url, right before the parameter! It’ll be like this:https://endpoint.scribesoft.com/v1/orgs/123456/requests/1234/api-docs?accesstoken=XYZNow dump the url in your browser and you’ll get the OpenAPI Specification you want. In a next blog, I’ll tell you all about how you can use this together with Microsoft Flow.
