- Services: API Gateway
- Release Date: Oct. 14, 2020
You can now create an API resource based on an API description that you have uploaded from a file written in a supported language. Currently, OpenAPI Specification version 2.0 (formerly Swagger Specification 2.0) and version 3.0 are supported.
An API description defines an API resource, including:
- available endpoints
- available operations on each endpoint
- parameters that can be input and output for each operation
- authentication methods
If you use an API resource to deploy an API on an API gateway, its API description pre-populates some of the properties of the API deployment specification.
For more information, see Creating an API Resource with an API Description.
