We usually implement swagger-ui for our api’s.
So whenever I receive API end point to test/explore, I used to append “swagger-ui.html” like below

http://payment-quote-dev.dev.cf.private.webexample.com/swagger-ui.html (example internal url).

So by using Swagger-ui we use to discover what are the calls our api supports/open for.

But if we want to discover what API calls our applications are making, we can either see Network routing logs if we have access.

OR

we can use CA service virtualisation tools “https://www.ca.com/us/products/excuse-free-testing/restful-api-test.html
which will help us to do 1. Capture the conversations/calls 2.Process the Captured Conversation 3. Create a Useable Model for testing.

I contributed to @oceannguyen’s thread above with a question of my own. If my tool does what I think it does, then it satisfies day 9 as well. :grinning: Otherwise, I have to look for something else.
