API Gateway to SQS

API Gateway to SQS Lab Introduction

Welcome to the API Gateway to SQS lab, powered by AWS and implemented using Terraform and HCL. In this lab, you will learn how to set up an API Gateway to integrate with an Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) queue. API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications.

By completing this lab, you will gain hands-on experience in configuring API Gateway to send incoming requests to an SQS queue. You will learn how to create an API Gateway REST API, define resources and methods, and configure the integration with SQS. Additionally, you will explore how to handle authentication and authorization for API Gateway using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies. This lab will provide you with the knowledge and skills to effectively utilize API Gateway and SQS in your own cloud computing projects.
