ImportRestApi - Amazon API Gateway

ImportRestApi

A feature of the API Gateway control service for creating a new API from an external API definition file.

Request Syntax

POST /restapis?mode=import&=parameters&failonwarnings=failOnWarnings HTTP/1.1 body

URI Request Parameters

The request uses the following URI parameters.

failOnWarnings

A query parameter to indicate whether to rollback the API creation (true) or not (false) when a warning is encountered. The default value is false.

parameters

A key-value map of context-specific query string parameters specifying the behavior of different API importing operations. The following shows operation-specific parameters and their supported values.

To exclude DocumentationParts from the import, set parameters as ignore=documentation.

To configure the endpoint type, set parameters as endpointConfigurationTypes=EDGE, endpointConfigurationTypes=REGIONAL, or endpointConfigurationTypes=PRIVATE. The default endpoint type is EDGE.

To handle imported basepath, set parameters as basepath=ignore, basepath=prepend or basepath=split.

For example, the AWS CLI command to exclude documentation from the imported API is:

The AWS CLI command to set the regional endpoint on the imported API is:

Request Body

The request accepts the following binary data.

body

The POST request body containing external API definitions. Currently, only OpenAPI definition JSON/YAML files are supported. The maximum size of the API definition file is 6MB.

Required: Yes

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 201 Content-type: application/json { "apiKeySource": "string", "binaryMediaTypes": [ "string" ], "createdDate": number, "description": "string", "disableExecuteApiEndpoint": boolean, "endpointConfiguration": { "types": [ "string" ], "vpcEndpointIds": [ "string" ] }, "id": "string", "minimumCompressionSize": number, "name": "string", "policy": "string", "tags": { "string" : "string" }, "version": "string", "warnings": [ "string" ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 201 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

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

Valid Values: HEADER | AUTHORIZER

binaryMediaTypes

The list of binary media types supported by the RestApi. By default, the RestApi supports only UTF-8-encoded text payloads.

Type: Array of strings

createdDate

The timestamp when the API was created.

Type: Timestamp

description

The API's description.

Type: String

disableExecuteApiEndpoint

Specifies whether clients can invoke your API by using the default execute-api endpoint. By default, clients can invoke your API with the default https://{api_id}.execute-api.{region}.amazonaws.com endpoint. To require that clients use a custom domain name to invoke your API, disable the default endpoint.

Type: Boolean

endpointConfiguration

The endpoint configuration of this RestApi showing the endpoint types of the API.

Type: EndpointConfiguration object

id

The API's identifier. This identifier is unique across all of your APIs in API Gateway.

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

name

The API's name.

Type: String

policy

A stringified JSON policy document that applies to this RestApi regardless of the caller and Method configuration.

Type: String

tags

The collection of tags. Each tag element is associated with a given resource.

Type: String to string map

version

A version identifier for the API.

Type: String

warnings

The warning messages reported when failonwarnings is turned on during API import.

Type: Array of strings

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

HTTP Status Code: 429

TooManyRequestsException

The request has reached its throttling limit. Retry after the specified time period.

HTTP Status Code: 429

UnauthorizedException

The request is denied because the caller has insufficient permissions.

HTTP Status Code: 401
