About publishing and deleting data entered online

The following operations were performed using the online Swagger Editor (https://editor.swagger.io/).
I have a question about how to handle edited data in this case.

 

operation
1. Access the site below https://swagger.io/tools/swagger-editor/
2. Click "Try Swagger Editor"
Paste the API specification in the left area
Click “Create server” ⇒ “nodejs-server” in the menu

 

Question 1. Is there a possibility that it will be disclosed to a third party?
Question 2. Will the data remain on the cloud side? If any remain, please delete them.

    Hi ma-inoue 

    My understanding:

     


    Question 1. Is there a possibility that it will be disclosed to a third party?

    Not possible as far as I know. You must export the spec and send it to the third party.


    Question 2. Will the data remain on the cloud side? If any remain, please delete them.

    As far As I know, it is saved on the client side.
    You can clear it by clearing your client local storage:

    Modification recorded in the local storage:


    After clearing the storage and refresh:

      Hi. chichepo 

       

      Thank you for answering.

       

      >As far As I know, it is saved on the client side.
      Am I correct in understanding that no data is stored on the server side?

        this is my understanding and it is quite obvious. But someone from @smartbear should confirm.

    1. Possibility of Disclosure: No, there is no risk of your API specification being disclosed to a third party when using Swagger Editor online.
    2. Data on the Cloud: No, the data doesn't reside on the cloud. It stays within your local browser, and you can clear it by clearing your website's cache or local storage.

    When utilizing the Swagger Editor at https://editor.swagger.io/ to create a server with the specified steps, it's generally unlikely that your data is disclosed to a third party. The editor processes information client-side, and the "Create server" feature generates temporary servers for testing, with data storage typically limited to your browser's local environment. To enhance security, avoid entering sensitive data and clear browser cache and cookies after usage. Always refer to the editor's documentation for specific data handling details and exercise caution with confidential information.
