Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: REST API Discovery Explorer doesn't     *
    *                      provide a way to authenticate per REST  *
    *                      operation when invoking Try Out button  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a Swagger document is specifying basic authentication,
    api-key/token or Auth 2.0 per operation there is no way to
    input it in the REST API Explorer UI
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a new button that will enable entering required
    authentication information for each individual operation in
    REST API Discovery UI. This button is displayed based on if
    the Swagger definition file from the application declares
    authentication information
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
