Creating a Model or Definitions

Have a schema that you want to reuse in multiple places? Create a Model. Models represent schema objects that allow the definition of input and output data types. Should be used to reduce duplication. Models can be reused with in another models, in traits or with endpoints. Use $ref to refer an existing model. Models are exactly like definitions as specified by Swagger.

You can create a Model by clicking on the Models option in your Project Home page which will open a view as shown below to fill in the details and create your Model.
