    Hi Experts,

    I am not able to see + symbol for adding resources,operations or subflows in Integration toolkit.

    Though I see an OpenAPI editor that opens in separate window but it doesn't show option to add Resources .

    Please suggest .

    Best Regards

    Hi Márcio Dantas, this would seem to indicate a failure to launch the OpenAPI editor. There is not enough information in the error message pop-ups for me to understand why. Can you take a look at the log file for the toolkit which is called <toolkit-workspace-dir>/.metadata/.log. This might contain a clue as to why the OpenAPI editor has failed to start. If that does not show anything there may be another log-file called <toolkit-workspace-dir>/.metadata/ibmtkelectronapp.log which may have some more details. Can you take a look and share if there is some more information. Thanks

    Hi Sayed, when the OpenAPI editor page opens, it should show a page like the following. Do you see this?
    From there you should be able to use the (+) next to the 'Paths' menu item to add the URI for the REST operation. 
    If this is not appearing, can you let use know what you do see. Thanks

    Hey guys.

    This problem still occurs for me. But I have two new variables:

    1. I reinstalled MacOS
    2. I installed version 12.0.10 that came out this week

    The problem continues to occur. When I generate an API project with OpenAPI3, I cannot open API Design. The error is the same as what I posted here in TXT.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Appologies Márcio for missing your earlier reply. Unfortunately the log-ace-toolkit.txt doesn't given much information as to what has gone wrong. Just that the OpenAPI editor has failed to start.

    In order to try and understand what is happening there is a few things we can use.

    1) First can you try starting the toolkit from the command line, so we can see what is written to stdout. 
    I don't have a Mac myself, but on Linux I run mqsiprofile, and the cd <ace-install-dir>/tools, and the run ./eclipse
    You can sometimes get information written to the screen which is not written to the log file

    2) With the toolkit started, there is an additional log file for the OpenAPI editor. To use that (by default it only contains errors)
    From the toolkit menu bar
      Window -> Preferences -> Integration Development -> Connection Settings
    and then the bottom 2 boxes are  titled "Connector Discovery"
    - change the log level from "error" to "debug"
    - and record the location of the log file
    then try starting the OpenAPI editor

    If you can attach the contents of the ibmtkelectronapp.log file (you might want to delete this file if already exists before you start to clear our any existing entries) and what was written to stdout that might give us some clue as to what is happening.

    The fix for launching the REST API Editor and the Discovery Connector Wizard using Mac Sonoma 14.0 will be available in the next mod release:
