x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer object - Amazon API Gateway

x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer object

Defines a Lambda authorizer or JWT authorizer to be applied for authorization of method invocations in API Gateway. This extension applies to the security definition in OpenAPI 2 and OpenAPI 3.

Properties
Property name Type Description
type string

The type of the authorizer. This is a required property.

For REST APIs, specify token for an authorizer with the caller identity embedded in an authorization token. Specify request for an authorizer with the caller identity contained in request parameters.

For HTTP APIs, specify request for a Lambda authorizer with the caller identity contained in request parameters. Specify jwt for a JWT authorizer.

authorizerUri string

The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the authorizer Lambda function. The syntax is as follows:

"arn:aws:apigateway:us-east-1:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:account-id:function:auth_function_name/invocations"
authorizerCredentials string

The credentials required for invoking the authorizer, if any, in the form of an ARN of an IAM execution role. For example, "arn:aws:iam::account-id:IAM_role".

authorizerPayloadFormatVersion string

For HTTP APIs, specifies the format of the data that API Gateway sends to a Lambda authorizer, and how API Gateway interprets the response from Lambda. To learn more, see Payload format version.

enableSimpleResponses Boolean

For HTTP APIs, specifies whether a request authorizer returns a Boolean value or an IAM policy. Supported only for authorizers with an authorizerPayloadFormatVersion of 2.0. If enabled, the Lambda authorizer function returns a Boolean value. To learn more, see Lambda function response for format 2.0.

identitySource string

A comma-separated list of mapping expressions of the request parameters as the identity source. Applicable for the authorizer of the request and jwt type only.

jwtConfiguration Object

Specifies the issuer and audiences for a JWT authorizer. To learn more, see JWTConfiguration in the API Gateway Version 2 API Reference. Supported only for HTTP APIs.

identityValidationExpression string

A regular expression for validating the token as the incoming identity. For example, "^x-[a-z]+". Supported only for REST APIs.

authorizerResultTtlInSeconds string

The number of seconds during which authorizer result is cached.

x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer examples for REST APIs

The following OpenAPI security definitions example specifies a Lambda authorizer of the "token" type and named test-authorizer.

"securityDefinitions" : { "test-authorizer" : { "type" : "apiKey", // Required and the value must be "apiKey" for an API Gateway API. "name" : "Authorization", // The name of the header containing the authorization token. "in" : "header", // Required and the value must be "header" for an API Gateway API. "x-amazon-apigateway-authtype" : "oauth2", // Specifies the authorization mechanism for the client. "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer" : { // An API Gateway Lambda authorizer definition "type" : "token", // Required property and the value must "token" "authorizerUri" : "arn:aws:apigateway:us-east-1:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:account-id:function:function-name/invocations", "authorizerCredentials" : "arn:aws:iam::account-id:role", "identityValidationExpression" : "^x-[a-z]+", "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds" : 60 } } }

The following OpenAPI operation object snippet sets the GET /http to use the preceding Lambda authorizer.

"/http" : { "get" : { "responses" : { }, "security" : [ { "test-authorizer" : [ ] } ], "x-amazon-apigateway-integration" : { "type" : "http", "responses" : { "default" : { "statusCode" : "200" } }, "httpMethod" : "GET", "uri" : "http://api.example.com" } } }

The following OpenAPI security definitions example specifies a Lambda authorizer of the "request" type, with a single header parameter (auth) as the identity source. The securityDefinitions is named request_authorizer_single_header.

"securityDefinitions": { "request_authorizer_single_header" : { "type" : "apiKey", "name" : "auth", // The name of a single header or query parameter as the identity source. "in" : "header", // The location of the single identity source request parameter. The valid value is "header" or "query" "x-amazon-apigateway-authtype" : "custom", "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer" : { "type" : "request", "identitySource" : "method.request.header.auth", // Request parameter mapping expression of the identity source. In this example, it is the 'auth' header. "authorizerCredentials" : "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/AWSepIntegTest-CS-LambdaRole", "authorizerUri" : "arn:aws:apigateway:us-east-1:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:123456789012:function:APIGateway-Request-Authorizer:vtwo/invocations", "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds" : 300 } } }

The following OpenAPI security definitions example specifies a Lambda authorizer of the "request" type, with one header (HeaderAuth1) and one query string parameter QueryString1 as the identity sources.

"securityDefinitions": { "request_authorizer_header_query" : { "type" : "apiKey", "name" : "Unused", // Must be "Unused" for multiple identity sources or non header or query type of request parameters. "in" : "header", // Must be "header" for multiple identity sources or non header or query type of request parameters. "x-amazon-apigateway-authtype" : "custom", "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer" : { "type" : "request", "identitySource" : "method.request.header.HeaderAuth1, method.request.querystring.QueryString1", // Request parameter mapping expressions of the identity sources. "authorizerCredentials" : "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/AWSepIntegTest-CS-LambdaRole", "authorizerUri" : "arn:aws:apigateway:us-east-1:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:123456789012:function:APIGateway-Request-Authorizer:vtwo/invocations", "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds" : 300 } } }

The following OpenAPI security definitions example specifies an API Gateway Lambda authorizer of the "request" type, with a single stage variable (stage) as the identity source.

"securityDefinitions": { "request_authorizer_single_stagevar" : { "type" : "apiKey", "name" : "Unused", // Must be "Unused", for multiple identity sources or non header or query type of request parameters. "in" : "header", // Must be "header", for multiple identity sources or non header or query type of request parameters. "x-amazon-apigateway-authtype" : "custom", "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer" : { "type" : "request", "identitySource" : "stageVariables.stage", // Request parameter mapping expression of the identity source. In this example, it is the stage variable. "authorizerCredentials" : "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/AWSepIntegTest-CS-LambdaRole", "authorizerUri" : "arn:aws:apigateway:us-east-1:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:123456789012:function:APIGateway-Request-Authorizer:vtwo/invocations", "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds" : 300 } } }

x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer examples for HTTP APIs

The following OpenAPI 3.0 example creates a JWT authorizer for an HTTP API that uses Amazon Cognito as an identity provider, with the Authorization header as an identity source.

"securitySchemes": { "jwt-authorizer-oauth": { "type": "oauth2", "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer": { "type": "jwt", "jwtConfiguration": { "issuer": "https://cognito-idp.region.amazonaws.com/userPoolId", "audience": [ "audience1", "audience2" ] }, "identitySource": "$request.header.Authorization" } } }

The following OpenAPI 3.0 example produces the same JWT authorizer as the previous example. However, this example uses the OpenAPI openIdConnectUrl property to automatically detect the issuer. The openIdConnectUrl must be fully formed.

"securitySchemes": { "jwt-authorizer-autofind": { "type": "openIdConnect", "openIdConnectUrl": "https://cognito-idp.region.amazonaws.com/userPoolId/.well-known/openid-configuration", "x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer": { "type": "jwt", "jwtConfiguration": { "audience": [ "audience1", "audience2" ] }, "identitySource": "$request.header.Authorization" } } }

The following example creates a Lambda authorizer for an HTTP API. This example authorizer uses the Authorization header as its identity source. The authorizer uses the 2.0 payload format version, and returns Boolean value, because enableSimpleResponses is set to true.

"securitySchemes" : { "lambda-authorizer" : { "type" : "apiKey", "name" : "Authorization", "in" : "header", x-amazon-apigateway-authorizer" : { "type" : "request", "identitySource" : "$request.header.Authorization", "authorizerUri" : "arn:aws:apigateway:us-west-2:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:function-name/invocations", "authorizerPayloadFormatVersion" : "2.0", "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds" : 300, "enableSimpleResponses" : true } } }
