UI backends

class SwaggerUiSettings(*, path: str, layout: str = 'StandaloneLayout', deepLinking: bool = True, displayOperationId: bool = False, defaultModelsExpandDepth: int = 1, defaultModelExpandDepth: int = 1, defaultModelRendering: str = 'example', displayRequestDuration: bool = False, docExpansion: str = 'list', filter: bool = False, showExtensions: bool = False, showCommonExtensions: bool = False, supportedSubmitMethods: List[str] = NOTHING, validatorUrl: Optional[str] = 'https://validator.swagger.io/validator', withCredentials: bool = False)

Settings for Swagger UI, see: configuration

Parameters
  • layout (str) – The name of a component available via the plugin system to use as the top-level layout for Swagger UI. It must be either BaseLayout or StandaloneLayout. Default StandaloneLayout.

  • deepLinking (bool) – If set to True, enables deep linking for tags and operations. See the Deep Linking documentation for more information. Default True.

  • displayOperationId (bool) – Controls the display of operationId in operations list. Default False.

  • defaultModelsExpandDepth (int) – The default expansion depth for models (set to -1 completely hide the models). Default 1.

  • defaultModelExpandDepth (int) – The default expansion depth for the model on the model-example section. Default 1.

  • defaultModelRendering (int) – Controls how the model is shown when the API is first rendered. It must be either example or model. Default example.

  • displayRequestDuration (bool) – Controls the display of the request duration (in milliseconds) for “Try it out” requests. Default False.

  • docExpansion (str) – Controls the default expansion setting for the operations and tags. It can be list (expands only the tags), full (expands the tags and operations) or none (expands nothing). Default list.

  • filter (bool) – If set, enables filtering. The top bar will show an edit box that you can use to filter the tagged operations that are shown. Default False.

  • showExtensions (bool) – Controls the display of vendor extension (x-) fields and values for Operations, Parameters, and Schema. Default False.

  • showCommonExtensions (bool) – Controls the display of extensions (pattern, maxLength, minLength, maximum, minimum) fields and values for Parameters. Default False.

  • supportedSubmitMethods (list) – List of HTTP methods that have the “Try it out” feature enabled. An empty array disables “Try it out” for all operations. This does not filter the operations from the display. Available methods: get, put, post, delete, options, head, patch, trace. By default all methods are enabled.

  • validatorUrl (str) – By default, Swagger UI attempts to validate specs against swagger.io’s online validator. You can use this parameter to set a different validator URL, for example for locally deployed validators (Validator Badge). Setting it to None will disable validation. Default https://validator.swagger.io/validator.

  • withCredentials (bool) – If set to True, enables passing credentials, as defined in the Fetch standard, in CORS requests that are sent by the browser. Note that Swagger UI cannot currently set cookies cross-domain (see swagger-js#1163) - as a result, you will have to rely on browser-supplied cookies (which this setting enables sending) that Swagger UI cannot control. Default False.
