API Types

The API consists of 3 different application types:

  1. Proxy API
  2. Internal API
  3. Hybrid API

Proxy API

Location: sourcecode/proxies/*

APIs that can be accessed from the internet under a sub path (for example /resources). They can only communicate to Internal APIs and Hybrid APIs.

Internal API

Location: sourcecode/apis/* (except contentauthor and common)

Internal APIs can only be accessed by other APIs in Edlib. Internal APIs cannot make requests to proxy APIs

Hybrid API

Location: sourcecode/apis/contentauthor and sourcecode/apis/common

Hybrid APIs can be accessed by both other APIs and from the internet. The internal part is protected with a key shared with all Edlib-specific APIs. Hybrid APIs, in turn, cannot make requests to proxy APIs.
