Evaluation with Swagger UI
To start working with the VAO REST API, you can use any client application that supports the HTTPS protocol.
The VAO REST API is additionally available through the Swagger UI, a tool that you can use to evaluate and explore capabilities of the VAO REST API. The Swagger UI visually presents API specification files and allows you to work with resources.
All resources and methods are expandable. When you expand a method, you get a full description of available parameters and an automatically generated example. You can also send requests and see response messages.
To access the Swagger UI for the VAO REST API, in a web browser, navigate to the following URL:
- <hostname> is a DNS name or IP address of the machine where the VAO server runs.
- <port> is the Web UI port number specified during VAO installation.
The default port number is 9898.
If you try to open Swagger UI for the VAO REST API in Internet Explorer, you get the following error in the console log:
SCRIPT1003: Expected ':'
To resolve the issue, turn off Compatibility View in Internet Explorer. To do that, click Tools, select Compatibility View settings and clear the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View check box.
