Spring Boot Web Redirect

November 1, 2019

When using Swagger with Spring Boot, the UI is provided at /swagger-ui.html. In order to show this from the root URL, I needed to add a web controller to my project, which will redirect from / to the ui page.

This can be done with the following class:

package com.drumcoder.diary.web.controller;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping;

public class RootController {
    public String greeting() {
        return "redirect:/swagger-ui.html";
