Private APIs enable you to securely expose REST APIs to resources only within your VPC or to those connected to your data centers via AWS Direct Connect. If you have existing Edge Optimized or Regional APIs in API Gateway, you can convert them to Private APIs. The VPC Links feature allows you to create REST APIs in front of your secured VPC resources without exposing them to the internet. Visit our documentation to learn more about Private APIs and Private Integrations in Amazon API Gateway.
You can use this feature in all regions where API Gateway Private APIs is available. To see all regions where API Gateway is available, visit the Region Table page. You can use the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDKs to create Private APIs and Private integrations using VPC Links. For more information about Amazon API Gateway, visit our product page.
