Possible cause:
Missing trailing backslash "/" at the end of the URL: http://<servername>:8890/oemanager/


To enable Swagger for a PASOE instance:

1. Open a PROENV shell and navigate to the working directory.

2. Create a PASOE instance:
$   pasman create -f -p 8890 -P 8891 -s 8892 -m tomcat:tomcat -N Test <workingdirectory>/Test

Note: If running in a production server the -f will not copy the war files to the instance directory because there are no war files in $CATALINA_HOME.
Use tcman deploy command instead, war files will be copied to the instance directory properly.

3. Start the PASOE instance in order to have the oemanager directory properly created in \<workingdirectory>\<instancenamedirectory>\webapps
$   pasman pasoestart restart -I Test

4. Navigate to the PASOE new instance directory: \<workingdirectory>\<instancenamedirectory>\webapps\oemanager\WEB-INF
a. Edit the file oemgrSecurity-container.xml,
b. Uncomment the following line (around line 35):
<!-- Access to SwaggerUI. Disabled by default, user has to uncomment the below line to enable it -->                       
<intercept-url pattern="/doc/**" method="GET" access="hasAnyRole('ROLE_PSCAdmin','ROLE_PSCOper','ROLE_PSCUser')"/>

5. Navigate back to the working directory and then restart the PASOE instance to apply changes
$   pasman pasoestart -restart -I Test

6. Open a web browser and type:
  • Ensure the URL has trailing backslash / at the end.
7. User and Password (tomcat/tomcat)

8. Swagger page should be loaded. If not, please verify the steps above and then stop and restart the PASOE instance, with the OpenEdge Explorer Console or tcman stop/start.
