Creating Project From OpenAPI/Swagger Definition

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.5, last modified on January 19, 2021
Note: This topic describes how to create a REST project based on an OpenAPI or Swagger definition stored outside of SwaggerHub. If your definition is stored in SwaggerHub, you can import the definition right from SwaggerHub.

To create projects by using an OpenAPI or Swagger definition, follow these steps:

  1. Select File > New Project.

    New Project Button

    – or –

    Use the New Test tile on the Dashboard.

  1. In the Create Project dialog, switch to the Definition tab.

  2. Select Swagger/OpenAPI Definition (REST), specify the project name, the full path to the .yaml or .json specification file and the Default Media Type. You can specify the URL address of the specification or click Browse and select a local definition file.

    Create OpenAPI/Swagger Project

    Click the image to enlarge it.

  3. Click OK.

ReadyAPI will create the project based on your service description.
