    If importing from the Projects page, specify whether you want to create a new project or add topics to an existing one. For a new project, provide the project name and language. 
  3. Click Next.
  4. Specify the path to the OpenAPI/Swagger definition file or drag and drop the file from your computer. Note that the file should be publicly available and not password-protected.
    Only a single file can be specified/uploaded, so if you need to import multiple OpenAPI definitions into a single project, run the wizard several times.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Wait until ClickHelp processes the file.
  7. On the last Import Wizard page, click Open Project to open the project or Finish to exit the wizard.
