To export an OpenAPI definition of an HTTP API

The following export-api example exports an OpenAPI 3.0 definition of an API stage named prod to a YAML file named stage-definition.yaml. The exported definition file includes API Gateway extensions by default.

aws apigatewayv2 export-api \
    --api-id a1b2c3d4 \
