GetDeployment - Amazon API Gateway


Gets information about a Deployment resource.

Request Syntax

GET /restapis/restapi_id/deployments/deployment_id?embed=embed HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request uses the following URI parameters.


The identifier of the Deployment resource to get information about.

Required: Yes


A query parameter to retrieve the specified embedded resources of the returned Deployment resource in the response. In a REST API call, this embed parameter value is a list of comma-separated strings, as in GET /restapis/{restapi_id}/deployments/{deployment_id}?embed=var1,var2. The SDK and other platform-dependent libraries might use a different format for the list. Currently, this request supports only retrieval of the embedded API summary this way. Hence, the parameter value must be a single-valued list containing only the "apisummary" string. For example, GET /restapis/{restapi_id}/deployments/{deployment_id}?embed=apisummary.


The string identifier of the associated RestApi.

Required: Yes

The request does not have a request body.
