So I'm creating a user endpoint with nodejs to add a user to the database , and for the api documentation I'm using swagger editor and I'm completely new to it. what I want to do is add a user with login , password , avatar but that user has multiple roles I want to add to the database what I have done in the yaml document in the swagger editor is this
/users/add: post: description: '' operationId: AddUser parameters: - description: The user login in: formData name: user required: true type: string - description: The user password in: formData name: password required: true type: string - description: The user name in: formData name: username required: true type: string - description: The user avatar in: formData name: avatar required: true type: file - in: formData name: roles description: roles required: false type: array items: type: string collectionFormat: multi
In conclusion what I want to get is an inputted array which contains the user roles and input them in the database. Thank younode.jsmongodbswaggerswagger-uiswagger-editor
What version of Swagger UI are you using? I am on version 2.1.1 and when I put the same definition as you I get the following input box for an array field.
Try upgrading to the newest version of Swagger UI.
Also, if you update the "in" field to be "query" the resulting URL will look like this:
You can then access the array values in the URL parameters rather than in "formData".
