WHAT IS AWS API GATEWAY HTTP Proxy Integration & HOW IT CAN HELP YOU

AWS API Gateway HTTP Proxy Integration is a feature that helps in building an API which can access multiple resouces or features of the HTTP endpoint. It provides a simple way to pass a method request to the backend.

This data includes:

  • request headers
  • query string parameters
  • URL path variables
  • data payload.

The endpoint will then parses the incoming request data, and decipher the response to return. Essentialy the only time API Gateway is needed is to setup the API.  The voodoo behind is, is that it can capture ANY HTTP verb passed in.

So what, what’s that mean for me you say?

One method to expose all of hte publicly accessible HTTP resources and operations created.

Pretty awsome you say, but what’s the catch?

For this peanuty goodness to be effective, one must clearly and frequently communicate any consumers of this API.

If you want go get your hands on this, log into your AWS Console >> API Gateway >> and set the method integration request to LAMBDA_PROXY.
