Customizing Swagger UI to add an additional functionality


Customizing Swagger UI to add an additional functionality

When we send a request on an endpoint from the swagger ui, we get the response in a code block. Now here I need to do a customization. I need use that response and do my own modifications and then display them in the codeblock(or wherever possible).

Now here I have some questions.
1. Is this a feasible thing to do.

2. If yes, then can you please me navigate me around the code so I can know where and how the change can be made.

3. If no, then what could go wrong here?

Is it feasible to customize responses in Swagger UI?

Yes, it's possible to customize responses in Swagger UI for formatting, adding information, or data transformation. Here are general steps:

  1. Locate Swagger UI Code: Find the source code or config files.

  2. Identify Response Handling: Look for response handling logic, often in JavaScript/TypeScript.

  3. Customize Response Handling: Modify data within the response handling logic, using JavaScript if needed. You can search for more at Chat GPT Português

  4. Update Display: Display customized data in Swagger UI, e.g., in a code block.

Potential issues:

  • Compatibility: Customizations may cause compatibility problems with Swagger UI versions.
  • Maintenance: Custom code may need updates with project changes.
  • Security: Be cautious with data modifications to avoid security risks.

Ensure thorough testing and documentation, and use version control for customizations.
