    ****************************************************************
    REST API Discovery /ibm/api/docs will show Error 500 if one of
    the application has syntactically incorrect Swagger document
    instead of showing warning in the log and showing all other
    valid documents.
    

Problem conclusion

  • REST API Discovery Document page will now ignore applications
    with syntactically incorrect Swagger documents and will show
    other applications that do have correct documents. The warning
    will be emitted into the server logs about the problematic
    document and application.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
