Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    A list of Stage resources that are associated with the ApiKey resource.

    • item (list) –

      The current page of elements from this collection.

      • (dict) –

        Represents a unique identifier for a version of a deployed RestApi that is callable by users.

        • deploymentId (string) –

          The identifier of the Deployment that the stage points to.

        • clientCertificateId (string) –

          The identifier of a client certificate for an API stage.

        • stageName (string) –

          The name of the stage is the first path segment in the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of a call to API Gateway. Stage names can only contain alphanumeric characters, hyphens, and underscores. Maximum length is 128 characters.

        • description (string) –

          The stage’s description.

        • cacheClusterEnabled (boolean) –

          Specifies whether a cache cluster is enabled for the stage. To activate a method-level cache, set CachingEnabled to true for a method.

        • cacheClusterSize (string) –

          The stage’s cache capacity in GB. For more information about choosing a cache size, see Enabling API caching to enhance responsiveness.

        • cacheClusterStatus (string) –

          The status of the cache cluster for the stage, if enabled.

        • methodSettings (dict) –

          A map that defines the method settings for a Stage resource. Keys (designated as /{method_setting_key below) are method paths defined as {resource_path}/{http_method} for an individual method override, or /\*/\* for overriding all methods in the stage.

          • (string) –

            • (dict) –

              Specifies the method setting properties.

              • metricsEnabled (boolean) –

                Specifies whether Amazon CloudWatch metrics are enabled for this method.

              • loggingLevel (string) –

                Specifies the logging level for this method, which affects the log entries pushed to Amazon CloudWatch Logs. Valid values are OFF, ERROR, and INFO. Choose ERROR to write only error-level entries to CloudWatch Logs, or choose INFO to include all ERROR events as well as extra informational events.

              • dataTraceEnabled (boolean) –

                Specifies whether data trace logging is enabled for this method, which affects the log entries pushed to Amazon CloudWatch Logs. This can be useful to troubleshoot APIs, but can result in logging sensitive data. We recommend that you don’t enable this option for production APIs.

              • throttlingBurstLimit (integer) –

                Specifies the throttling burst limit.

              • throttlingRateLimit (float) –

                Specifies the throttling rate limit.

              • cachingEnabled (boolean) –

                Specifies whether responses should be cached and returned for requests. A cache cluster must be enabled on the stage for responses to be cached.

              • cacheTtlInSeconds (integer) –

                Specifies the time to live (TTL), in seconds, for cached responses. The higher the TTL, the longer the response will be cached.

              • cacheDataEncrypted (boolean) –

                Specifies whether the cached responses are encrypted.

              • requireAuthorizationForCacheControl (boolean) –

                Specifies whether authorization is required for a cache invalidation request.

              • unauthorizedCacheControlHeaderStrategy (string) –

                Specifies how to handle unauthorized requests for cache invalidation.

        • variables (dict) –

          A map that defines the stage variables for a Stage resource. Variable names can have alphanumeric and underscore characters, and the values must match [A-Za-z0-9-._~:/?#&=,]+.

          • (string) –

            • (string) –

        • documentationVersion (string) –

          The version of the associated API documentation.

        • accessLogSettings (dict) –

          Settings for logging access in this stage.

          • format (string) –

            A single line format of the access logs of data, as specified by selected $context variables. The format must include at least $context.requestId.
