API Management with Apigee
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:
- 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.
Upon completion of this intermediate-level lab, you will be able to:
- Create Apigee evaluation organizations
- Create and Deploy Apigee API proxies
- Use Apigee policies to enable API key authentication for your APIs
- Use Apigee monitoring and analytics data to understand how your APIs are performing
- Software Developers
- Google Cloud Platform Administrators
- API Designers
Familiarity with the following will be beneficial for this lab:
- API Management
- Fundamental Apigee Concepts
