OpenAPI Workflows: describing sequences of operations - David O'Neill, APImetrics

"The OpenAPI Specification provides a way to document individual API calls and how to use them, but it doesn't give insight into the common ways to sequence those operations. While all APIs can benefit from formally describing these workflows, this is particularly important when considering more complex or more secure APIs.

The OpenAPI Workflows Special Interest Group was created to address this common problem. The goal is to construct a formal way to describe these sequences and support documentation of flows, such as a multi-part OAuth flow with JSON signing and refresh token behavior.

This talk will review the progress of the workgroup and describe progress toward a standardized way for describing how a particular API call works within the context of the service provided. We will also present work so far and concepts being considered for describing flows of individual calls in the context of the Specification.
