What you'll learn

Through this tutorial, you'll learn to:

  • Create an API proxy.
  • Change your proxy's target endpoint.
  • Add a policy to your proxy.

What you'll need

  • curl installed on your machine to make API calls from the command line.

To build and deploy your first API proxy:

  1. Create an Apigee account. You have to do this before you can go any further. Or is it farther?
  2. Create an API proxy using the Edge management UI. You'll connect your proxy to a mock endpoint so you can see how it works.
  3. Test your new proxy to make sure you're on track.
  4. Change your target endpoint so your policy has more interesting data to play with.
  5. Add a policy to convert the response from XML to JSON. Policies are at the heart of your proxy's request-response flow.
