The path issue with the REST API Browser has been resolved! Version 3.2.3 fixes the problem.

Again we can take advantage of the feature that makes the API documentation available in Confluence!

We documented the problem in a post Problems with the Web API and the REST API Browser.

It appears that this version of the REST API Browser (still) does not cover the latest version of Confluence. Therefore you probably need to download the latest artifact of the app from the Version History page and install it manually. We recommend to test your use cases prior to installing! We already ran the 3.2.2 on a more recent version of Confluence and encountered no problems with that or the latest version of the app so far.

Here is the great news:

The feature will be usable again with the projectdoc Toolbox 4.4 and the Web API Extension 6.2.1.

We are visiting OOP 2020!

This year we attend the OOP in Munich again!

We are looking forward to the OOP 2020 with a large list of very interesting sessions and keynotes.

It starts tomorrow (3rd of February 2020) and we will be there on Tuesday and Wednesday. We hope to meet a lot of friends and IT enthusiasts there!
