App Modernization with Apigee
Advanced 5 Steps 7 hours 29 Credits
Apigee enables you to create APIs and manage them for the benefit of other developers who might need to use your software. Apigee Edge enables you to quickly expose backend services as APIs. These "API Products" offer different capabilities and levels of service, with consumption managed by Apigee. Istio is an open source framework for connecting, securing, and managing microservices, especially services that are hosted in a Kubernetes cluster. This Quest of hands-on labs gives you practice in using Apigee for API creation and management functionality when you decide to modernize an application backend on Google Kubernetes Engine and an Istio based service mesh.
PrerequisitesPrior to taking the labs in this Advanced-level Quest, you should have significant experience in application development and containerized deployment in Google Kubernetes Engine. Suggested prerequisite Quest is Kubernetes In the Google Cloud.
This lab will teach you about the architecture and basic functioning of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This will be supplemented with hands-on practice, where you will configure and run Cloud Storage API methods in Cloud Shell.
Starting with an existing SOAP service, you'll import it into Apigee and apply some basic security, traffic management, and message transformation policies.
This lab shows you how to install and configure Istio on Kubernetes Engine, deploy an Istio-enabled microservices application, install Apigee Istio Mixer plugin which provides additional security, governance , and enforces authorization via Apigee.
In this lab you will learn how to leverage Apigee to transparently migrate application traffic from legacy backends to GCP-backed systems.
In this lab you will learn how to leverage Apigee Edge to integrate with Google Cloud Platform’s Stack Driver for message logging.
