I’ve got a question about AWS API Gateway..
I want to process an other companies API into my own dynamoDB in AWS.
They can only POST an XML formatted to my API.
My setup is API Gateway -> Lambda -> DynamoDB.
But how can do set up a API Gateway POST in such a way that i accepts the XML posted by them?
Link to their XML Post setup (it’s just the uplink data):
You can define a request mapping template for “application/xml” which will be triggered when the client sends a “Content-Type” header of “application/xml”.
While API Gateway doesn’t yet offer first-class support for XML, you can simply send the XML payload to Lambda in a JSON string field:
"bodyXml" : "$input.body"
In your Lambda function, you can use your XML parsing library of choice to process the XML.
Hope this helps,
