How to send custom headers with requests in Swagger UI?

The Solution to How to send custom headers with requests in Swagger UI? is


In ASP.net WebApi, the simplest way to pass-in a header on Swagger UI is to implement the Apply(...) method on the IOperationFilter interface.

Add this to your project:

public class AddRequiredHeaderParameter : IOperationFilter
{
    public void Apply(Operation operation, SchemaRegistry schemaRegistry, ApiDescription apiDescription)
    {
        if (operation.parameters == null)
            operation.parameters = new List<Parameter>();

        operation.parameters.Add(new Parameter
        {
            name = "MyHeaderField",
            @in = "header",
            type = "string",
            description = "My header field",
            required = true
        });
    }
}

In SwaggerConfig.cs, register the filter from above using c.OperationFilter<>():

public static void Register()
{
    var thisAssembly = typeof(SwaggerConfig).Assembly;

    GlobalConfiguration.Configuration 
        .EnableSwagger(c =>
        {
            c.SingleApiVersion("v1", "YourProjectName");
            c.IgnoreObsoleteActions();
            c.UseFullTypeNameInSchemaIds();
            c.DescribeAllEnumsAsStrings();
            c.IncludeXmlComments(GetXmlCommentsPath());
            c.ResolveConflictingActions(apiDescriptions => apiDescriptions.First());


            c.OperationFilter<AddRequiredHeaderParameter>(); // Add this here
        })
        .EnableSwaggerUi(c =>
        {
            c.DocExpansion(DocExpansion.List);
        });
}
