API Gateway is a fully managed service by Amazon that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain and monitor their APIs at any scale without having to worry about versioning, authorizations, throttling and other administrative tasks. In this course, authored by Tehreem Siddiqui and narrated by Adam Hawkins, you will learn how to create and deploy REST API through API Gateway to expose HTTP endpoints, AWS Lambda functions and other AWS services.


Hello and welcome back to the API Gateway Course and this quick lesson on working with Swagger. Amazon API Gateway allows you to import and export Swagger definitions.

The import feature may also be used to update an existing API. APIs may be exported as a template or with extra extensions. This is especially useful for teams using Postman to test and interact with their APIs.

This is easy to do in the AWS console. First select the API and select the stage you want to export. Select the export tab and you'll find three options. Now you have all the power of Swagger along with the API Gateway.
