The API Discovery feature allows you to watch HTTP traffic in the ReadyAPI internal browser or through an external browser that uses ReadyAPI as a proxy. We'll capture REST traffic within that activity and write it to a traffic log so you can browse through it for the specific traffic type you are interested in. You can use API Discovery to create API definitions or virts inside your project.
Discover Using Internal Browser
To discover APIs using the internal browser, turn on the recorder, select a URI and browse to the resources you want to capture. When you've visited all the resources you care about, turn off recording and you're done.
Discover Using Proxy
ReadyAPI can act as a standard proxy to forward messages back and forth between the client to a specified host. You don't need to explicitly start the proxy because it runs immediately when you open the window. The port for the proxy is configurable and changes apply in real time.
Discover Using Client
Alternatively to using the internal browser, you can use a client on the same network or computer. Just set the client to use ReadyAPI as a proxy so the HTTP traffic runs through ReadyAPI's capture process.
After you've filtered and selected relevant traffic, you can use it to do a number of things:

- Convert it into services for use in your SoapUI Pro test project.
- Use it to create TestSuites containing TestCases with the services.
- Create virts in ServiceV Pro.
