Amazon API Gateway is an AWS service for creating, publishing, maintaining, monitoring, and securing REST, HTTP, and WebSocket APIs at any scale.

APIs can be created that access AWS, other web services, and data stored in the AWS Cloud. You can:

  • Create APIs for use in your own client applications (apps).
  • Make your APIs available to third-party app developers.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select API Gateway.
