Is a REST service an API call ?

Post by avorsterman »

I'm confused about the use of rest services.
Does creating and invoking a rest service count as an API call and therefore part of the maximum limit of API calls per month?

I want to use AWS Lambda/API gateway with cors enabled and thought I could call them via a rest service. But on the create rest service screen I see the appery.io proxy enabled by default.

So if I call the rest service is it then counted as an API call?

Hello,

If you use API Express service with the REST component - these calls will be counted: https://docs.appery.io/docs/apiexpress- ... -component
You may get more information on our pricing page, please check the questions What’s a platform API call? and Do you count API calls to Backend Services during development and testing?

I found out how to add NPM modules and added axios.
It's working and I can fetch data from another server without using a backend service.

So this would not hit any Appery.io API call, is this correct?

You are right, in this case, you don't use Appery.io backend at all

Do you see an API for ListCategories and ListItemTypes ? I cannot remember where the namespace where they are implemented, but I believe it should give you what you want.
