URI Request Parameters

The request does not use any URI parameters.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

apiKeySource

The source of the API key for metering requests according to a usage plan. Valid values are: >HEADER to read the API key from the X-API-Key header of a request. AUTHORIZER to read the API key from the UsageIdentifierKey from a custom authorizer.

Type: String

Type: Array of strings

Required: No

cloneFrom

The ID of the RestApi that you want to clone from.

Type: String

minimumCompressionSize

A nullable integer that is used to enable compression (with non-negative between 0 and 10485760 (10M) bytes, inclusive) or disable compression (with a null value) on an API. When compression is enabled, compression or decompression is not applied on the payload if the payload size is smaller than this value. Setting it to zero allows compression for any payload size.

Type: Integer

Required: No

name
