Ted, it was a fair question and has bumped up the priority (in my mind) for providing help
for this.  The good news is it should be relatively straightforward to accomplish.  Someone
out there may have already done this (penn state?) and maybe they’ll step forward with their
experiences using slapd’s OLC.

Nothing as cool as swagger doc unfortunately.

What I can offer is this:

Which is the fortress-rest javadoc.  It provides the service and param names, along with descriptions,
and whether they are required or optional.

You can also flip a switch in the fortress-core apis to route through fortress-rest.

There are some basic instructions here:
SECTION 7: Alternate testing procedures

That way when you run the fortress-core junit tests, all of the api calls will route through
the rest server first rather than ldap.  You can then capture those and use as examples for
your tests cases. It will generate thousands of service invocations.

I realize this may not make sense so feel free to follow-up with any questions you may have.
