[JIM] ToolsOnAir REST API v.6.5

With the introduction of ToolsOnAir REST API, a new path of integration has opened up, allowing you to seamlessly incorporate just:in mac into your tailored workflows. This new advancement empowers you to initiate recordings remotely, directly from external systems. By utilising ToolsOnAir REST API calls, you gain the flexibility to integrate just:in mac into your existing infrastructure with ease.

This new ToolsOnAir REST API provides almost all the features of the well-known Just Control user interface. The ToolsOnAir REST API can easily be tested with the Postman.app for macOS or with the integrated Swagger-UI.

Please note that the API calls are received by the Just In Engine application, therefore the IP Address of the machine running the Just In Engine application must be used.


To access the integrated Swagger-UI, open a web browser and enter the following address: "IP-Address:8080/swagger-ui/index.html". You should then see the following:

In version 6.5, you can now test the ToolsOnAir API in an even more comfortable way by clicking on the “Open REST API” button in the Just Control Configuration panel. This will automatically open the Swagger-UI in your selected browser.


If you want to use Postman for testing, please follow the instructions below.

Import into Postman by using a URL

If you use the Postman.app on the same machine as the Just In Engine application, you can use this link - http://localhost:8080/v3/api-docs - to import the ToolsOnAir REST API into the Postman.app. Simply open the Postman.app and use the “Import File” option.

Then use the link - http://localhost:8080/v3/api-docs - and paste it into the “URL” field.

The Postman.app automatically detects the ToolsOnAir REST API and by pressing the “Import” button the process can be completed.

Afterward, the ToolsOnAir REST API can be tested with the Postman.app. Please note that the IP address might need to be adjusted.
