The Services Documentation module generates API documentation for your site’s Services resources. Most of the documentation is generated automatically, using the resource information provided by Services. However, this module provides you with the ability to easily extend that documentation.

We make the following assumptions about your usage of the Services module:

  • You are providing an API to a third party, which allows them to access your data via Services.
  • You would like to provide a page to API consumers that documents your API endpoints, resources, etc.

Documentation will be made available on your Drupal site at /developers. It will be organized by API version (arbitrarily defined by you), and subsequently displayed hierarchically according to resource, method type, method name, arguments, etc.


  1. Enable the module
  2. Navigate to admin/structure/services/list and click 'Edit Resources' for a given endpoint
  3. Click 'edit documentation' for a given resource
  4. Check 'Enable display of custom documentation' and optionally fill in field
  5. Navigate to /admin/people/permissions and set permissions for resource documentation
