Endpoints tool window
If you are developing an Express application, you can get an overview of route handlers in the Endpoints tool window. The tool window can assist you when developing microservices and backend-frontend communication. It is also helpful for working with RESTful APIs.
To navigate to the endpoint declaration from the Endpoints tool window, do one of the following:
Select Go to Declaration from the endpoint's context menu.
Select the endpoint and press Control+B.
Double-click the endpoint.
To search for Express route declarations, go tofrom the main menu or press Command Shift \ and select the relevant declaration from the list.
In the Endpoints tool window, you can filter the list of endpoints by module, type, and framework. To list endpoints from external sources (for example, from remote OpenAPI specifications) , select External under Module.
Endpoints marked as deprecated appear with a strikethrough (crossed out).

Configure OpenAPI Sources: Add an external OpenAPI specification (for example, from SwaggerHub) to include endpoints from this specification in the Endpoints tool window and highlight them with a yellow background. In the OpenAPI Specifications window that opens, click in the Remote Specifications list, and specify the URL of an OpenAPI specification file or find an OpenAPI specification on SwaggerHub. This also adds URLs defined in the specification to code completion.
