Description

Warning This lab involves setting up an Apigee evaluation organization which can take up to 45 minutes of provisioning time. Please ensure you have ample time before starting this lab.

Apigee adds a management facade in front of backend API services. This API Management layer provides a variety of features including:

  • Security
  • Monitoring
  • Rate-limiting
  • Quota enforcement.

Consumers of your APIs interact with API proxies in Apigee rather than directly with the backend services allowing for a consistent API for consumers even if backend services need to change.

This lab guides you through the process of managing APIs with Apigee from creating the Apigee organization to monitoring deployed API proxies.
