Important Note: You will create AWS resources during the workshop which will incur cost in your AWS account. It is recommended to clean-up the resources as soon as you finish the workshop to minimize the cost.

Creating Private API in Amazon API Gateway

It is possible to create private REST APIs using AWS API Gateway. The private APIs are accessible only from Amazon VPC by using an interface VPC endpoint. Further, API level resource policy is used to allow or deny access to the API from selected VPCs and VPC endpoints. From on premises environment, VPN or AWS Direct Connect can be used to access the private API using VPC endpoints.

In this workshop, you learn to configure private REST API and call from within the VPC.
