The OpenAPI Specification defines a standard, programming language-agnostic interface description for REST APIs. We are pleased to announce OpenAPI support in Oracle integration cloud REST adapter.
What this means is that all OIC integration flows with a REST trigger will publish an openAPI to describe its metadata. This machine readable description of the API will allow interactive API explorers as well as the developers to consume OIC integration flows with ease.
On activation of an integration flow, the metadata link will show the new option to display the openAPI in addition to the swagger URL.
We are also introducing an interactive openAPI explorer in the Oracle integration cloud REST adapter wizard that will help integration developers to explore and consume APIs described in openAPI format with a few clicks. The REST adapter already has similar support for swagger2.0.
Steps to consume an API described in openAPI:
* This feature is currently in controlled availability. If you are eager to try this out, enable the feature with id oic.cloudadapter.adapter.rest.openapiurl using this blog.
OpenAPI is a rich specification. Currently some of the constructs in openAPI cannot be consumed. Please consult the oracle documentation for information about the constraints.
