Create and test the Products API proxy in Apigee Edge
Content Aggregation via Apigee - Bring in Google Hosted API Content
Apigee Edge enables you to quickly expose backend services as APIs. By creating an API proxy you provide a facade for the backend service that you exposed. The API proxy decouples your backend service implementation from the API that developers consume. These shields developers from future changes to your backend services. As you update backend services, developers are insulated from those changes and can continue to call the API uninterrupted.
In this lab you learn how to leverage Apigee to aggregate an existing API call with the content coming from google hosted database. You add recommendations to a products API; the recommendations come from data stored in the firestore database. The pattern, however, can be applied to a variety of use cases. Consider, for example, an endpoint that receives feedback on a product or service such as POST /v1/products/1234/feedback - using the Natural Language API you can enrich the payload with sentiment scoring.
Similarly, you could readily inject image URLs into a weather endpoint by calling the Search API and aggregating results from the Weather Underground API.
