How can I get the rest API description of Jira/Confluence-Plugins?


How can I get the basic rest-api-description of jira/confluence rest-apis in a wadl/wsdl/raml/swagger format?
How does the rest api browser get this information?

I need to export the information of excisting apis to another program.

Best regards

You're welcome, Daniel.

If you think, your question is answered, please mark it as answered. With that mark, other users find answered questions more easy. Thank you.

Additional question: It seems like the link gives me only the "/rest/api"- APIs, but I have also APIs like "/rest/adhocworkflows" and others. Is there a way to get a wadl-File with all APIs including every installed plugin/rest/spi etc.?
