Onboard a REST data source

Data sources are key to building a project. In Xapix, you onboard REST and SOAP data sources using the following methods:

  • OpenAPI 2.0 schema file

  • API URL

  • Xapix internal API

  • HTTP method and address

In this tutorial, we import an OpenAPI 2.0 Swagger file provided for this tutorial to onboard data sources.

Xapix has provided a demo file for use with this tutorial. Begin by downloading the following swagger file to a local drive, then continue with the next steps:

The first step to onboarding a data source in this tutorial is to import the Swagger file you saved to a local drive in the previous step.
