API Proxy,



Import a new API Proxy

Uploads a ZIP-formatted API proxy configuration bundle from a local machine to an organization on Edge. If the API proxy already exists, then create a new revision of the API proxy. If the API proxy does not exist, then create it. 

Once imported, the API revision must be deployed before it can be accessed at runtime.

By default, API proxy configurations are not validated on import:

  • To validate the API proxy definition on import, set the validate query parameter to true. Invalid API proxy configurations are rejected, and a list of validation errors returned to the client.
  • To validate the API only but not import it, set the action query parameter to validate

In the following cURL example, Content-Type is automatically set to multipart/form-data

curl -X POST -u email:password -F "" "{org-name}/apis?action=import&name=example"

Resource URL /organizations/{org_name}/apis
