API Proxy

API Proxy


Policy is an Edge component that can be attached to a proxy at different points to:

  • transform message format
  • enforce access control
  • call remote services
  • authorize users
  • examine / validate message content 
  • control amount of traffic 

API Proxy


Example policies: 

  • Quota Policy
  • Spike Arrest
  • Assign Message
  • JS Callouts
  • Authorization

Hosted Target

Hosted Targets lets you run Node.js applications in a native runtime environment hosted by Apigee.


The goal of Hosted Targets is simple: allow you to deploy applications in a native, secure, scalable, and isolated environment where Edge API proxies can call them as target services.
