x-extendedDiscriminator

ATTENTION: This is a ReDoc-specific vendor extension, and is not supported by other tools.

Field Name Type Description
x-extendedDiscriminator string specifies extended discriminator
How to use with ReDoc

ReDoc uses this vendor extension to solve name-clash issues with the standard discriminator. Value of this field specifies the field which will be used as a extended discriminator. ReDoc displays definition with selectpicker using which user can select value of the x-extendedDiscriminator-marked field. ReDoc displays the definition derived from the current (using allOf) and has enum with only one value which is the same as the selected value of the field specified as x-extendedDiscriminator.

x-extendedDiscriminator example
Copy
Copied
Payment:
  x-extendedDiscriminator: type
  type: object
  required:
    - type
  properties:
    type:
      type: string
    name:
      type: string

CashPayment:
  allOf:
    - $ref: "#/definitions/Payment"
    - properties:
        type:
          type: string
          enum:
            - cash
        currency:
          type: string

PayPalPayment:
  allOf:
    - $ref: "#/definitions/Payment"
    - properties:
        type:
          type: string
          enum:
            - paypal
        userEmail:
          type: string

In the example above, the names of definitions (PayPalPayment) are named differently than names in the payload (paypal) which is not supported by default discriminator.

x-additionalPropertiesName

ATTENTION: This is a ReDoc-specific vendor extension, and is not supported by other tools.

Extends the additionalProperties property of the schema object.

Field Name Type Description
x-additionalPropertiesName string descriptive name of additional properties keys
How to use with ReDoc

ReDoc uses this extension to display a more descriptive property name in objects with additionalProperties when viewing the property list with an object.

x-additionalPropertiesName example
Copy
Copied
Player:
  required:
  - name

  properties:
    name:
      type: string

  additionalProperties:
    x-additionalPropertiesName: attribute-name

x-explicitMappingOnly

ATTENTION: This is ReDoc-specific vendor extension, and is not supported by other tools.

Extends the discriminator property of the schema object.

Field Name Type Description
x-explicitMappingOnly boolean limit the discriminator selectpicker to the explicit mappings only
How to use with ReDoc

ReDoc uses this extension to filter the discriminator mappings shown in the selectpicker. When set to true, the selectpicker will only list the the explicitly defined mappings. When false, the default behavior is kept, i.e. explicit and implicit mappings will be shown.

x-explicitMappingOnly example
Copy
Copied
Pet:
  type: object
  required:
    - name
    - photoUrls
  discriminator:
    propertyName: petType
    x-explicitMappingOnly: true
    mapping:
      cat: "#/components/schemas/Cat"
      bee: "#/components/schemas/HoneyBee"

Will show in the selectpicker only the items cat and bee, even though the Dog class inherits from the Pet class.
