Wallarm approach to API development and documentation

Wallarm API Reference is a single page application (SPA) with all displayed data being dynamically fetched from the API. This design drives Wallarm to use the API-first approach when new data and functionality is initially made available in the public API and as the next step is described in the API Reference. Normally all new functionality is released in parallel in both public API and API Reference, but sometimes new API changes are released ahead of API Reference changes, and some functionality is available via the public API only.

Wallarm API Reference is generated from the Swagger file using the Swagger UI tool. API Reference provides an easy way to learn about available API endpoints, methods, and data structures. It also provides a simple way to try all available endpoints.
