How to import a Swagger (yaml file) in visual paradigm

I’m a new user of visual paradigm tool.
How can I import a API Swagger (yaml file) in visual paradigm tool ?


Hi Bigui,

Sorry that Visual Paradigm only supports export swagger, but not supports import swagger file.
Thank you for your enquiry and we will consider putting this in our roadmap.

Thanks Kit.So.

Dear Kit.So,
This will be done shortly in 2020 or later ?


Hi Bigui,

Sorry that I cannot confirm at this moment. But I can confirm that we’ll evaluate swagger import after the release of 16.2. Then we’ll consider whether to put in our roadmap or not.

Hi @Kit.So swagger import is very interesting for us as well. Can you keep me up to date on the roadmap discussion?

Sure. When there is any updates, we will post a reply under this thread.

@Jick Thank you!

I would vote for this feature. It would be a big time saver for me.

Hi all,

I am glad to inform you all that we will support importing a Swagger yaml in the coming version (16.3). I will post again when it is out. :slight_smile:

Have a nice weekend!

Best regards,

Any progress with implementing support for OpenAPI ?

REST API generation - Support for OpenAPI 3.x - #2 by Jick

Hi Robert,

Yes, that will be supported as well in version 16.3.

That’s the great news. This feature is absolutely fundamental for us - having YAML round-trip!

Hi all,

I am glad to announce that version 16.3 is out. Two enhancements:

  • Support of OpenAPI specification v3 in API generation
  • Supported importing Swagger, OpenAPI, YAML and JSON

Best regards,
