We are announcing the launch of AWS Data Exchange for APIs, a new feature that enables customers to find, subscribe to, and use third-party API products from providers on AWS Data Exchange. With AWS Data Exchange for APIs, customers can leverage AWS-native authentication and governance, explore consistent API documentation, and utilize supported AWS SDKs to make API calls. Data providers can now reach millions of AWS customers that consume API-based data by adding their APIs to the AWS Data Exchange catalog, and more easily manage subscriber authentication, entitlement, and billing.
With AWS Data Exchange for APIs, customers can leverage AWS-native authentication when setting access permissions for team members, to help simplify governance and compliance. The customer’s API charges can be viewed in a consolidated AWS bill, which helps simplify billing and payments. AWS SDKs (available in 6 programming languages) help reduce developer effort and facilitate integration with applications deployed to AWS Lambda, Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute, and other AWS services.
AWS Data Exchange for APIs is available in all regions where AWS Data Exchange is available including: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (London) Regions.
