API, REST and Swagger on the menu?


Is there plan to add REST API and Swagger to Aras soon?

Is it already there with version 12?

  • Hi Sacha,

    A REST API was introduced in Aras Innovator 11.0 SP12 and is available in every new version since including version 12.0. To get started, I'd recommend checking out our blog post on using the RESTful API

    I'm unfamiliar with Swagger, and I don't believe there are any current plans for an integration with Aras Innovator.

  • Hi Christopher,

    Great news for the API REST!

    Regarding Swagger, it ease the process of learning and running through the API, since it create an interface where you can directly test the API. Like Postman, but everything is autogenerated and the developer can add documentation.

    And the second nice thing about it, is that it automatically generate several client. There's a list here, it's quite complete: https://swagger.io/tools/swagger-codegen/

    It look like this:
