Administration API

WireMock Standalone offers the REST API for administration, troubleshooting and analysis purposes. You can find the key use-cases and the full specification below.

Fetching all of your stub mappings (and checking WireMock is working)

A GET request to the root admin URL e.g http://localhost:8080/__admin will return all currently registered stub mappings. This is a useful way to check whether WireMock is running on the host and port you expect.

Shutting Down

To shutdown the server, post a request with an empty body to http://<host>:<port>/__admin/shutdown.

Full specification

The full specification is available here.
