You now have more options to configure and deploy REST APIs using the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM). You can now configure logging, metrics, CORS, and regional endpoints for Amazon API Gateway resources in your AWS SAM template. You can also configure APIs that support binary data and you can define method settings like throttling limits and CacheTTL. Visit the release notes for more details on these new features.

AWS SAM extends AWS CloudFormation to provide a simplified way of defining the Amazon API Gateway APIs, AWS Lambda functions, and Amazon DynamoDB tables needed by your serverless application. The AWS Serverless Application Model is available under the Apache 2.0 license, enabling anyone to adopt and incorporate it into build, deployment, monitoring and management tools with a commercial-friendly license.

AWS SAM is available in all regions where AWS Lambda is available. For more information on where Lambda is available, see the AWS region table.

To learn more about using AWS SAM to build serverless applications, visit our documentation and check out the model on GitHub.
