Ability to generate OpenAPI docs for REST-ful integration

Data Import & Integration

Salesforce provides the ability to generate WSDL documents for inbound integrations using SOAP (Settings > search for “API” > API > Generate Enterprise WSDL for example).  It would be nice to be able to generate YAML or JSON documents following the OpenAPI specification to facilitate integrating using REST.  Some tooling does exist to convert from WSDL to YAML (https://kalliphant.com/node-generate-yaml-from-wsdl/) but it would be nice to be able to generate OpenAPI YAML/JSON documents directly in Salesforce, perhaps alongside those “Generate * WSDL” links in the API settings page.

    Hi everyone, I’m a product manager working on core data APIs at Salesforce. My team and I are working on describing our REST APIs with OpenAPI 3.0 specifications. We are about to start a Pilot program in Winter ’21 where we will offer an initial specification describing four sObjects REST resources that support standard sObjects. The goal of this Pilot is to gather feedback on the initial artifact so we can improve the “standard” spec before moving on to represent org-specific sObject customizations, and then extending coverage to additional REST resources. Please reach out to your account team at Salesforce to be nominated for the Pilot!
