Swagger file for CM 8.7 APIs

Swagger having become a reference for the documentation and standardization of API's, it would be interesting if the different APIs provided with CM (in my case, version 8.7) could have its swagger file made available.

    We are planning to ship Open API (the follow on to SWAGGER) support in a future release of the CM 8 REST services. This has become very common in the industry for REST services is very useful.

    We are not familiar with using SWAGGER/Open API outside of REST interfaces. So, we have no plan to deliver this for other APIs. Given the complex nature of our Java API, I also don't see how this could be done easily nor how it would be useful. If you would like to see this for our Java API, we need some more details on how this would work. A pointer to another product that has done this with a complex Java API would also help.
