Enabling the Defect Tracking System REST API interactive framework

The built-in Defect Tracking System Integration REST API interface provides you with a way to visualize RESTful web services that are used for submitting defects to a defect tracking system. Use the framework to interact with the Defect Tracking System Integration API and get clear insight into how the API responds to parameters and options.

Before you begin

  1. To enable the framework's URL for users, the Product Administrator must create a file called dtsweb.properties in <install-dir>\AppScan Enterprise\Liberty\usr\servers\ase\config\. Add this line of code:dtsweb.rest.doc.enabled=true. Otherwise, users get a 404 error page when they attempt to access the URL.
  2. Restart the HCL AppScan Enterprise Server service after you create the dtsweb.properties file.
