How to export / import API Gateway Mappings


We are working on a process to create a backup of all API Gateway Mappings in our environments to have on file, in case someone deletes the mappings. I see a way to export the current mappings, using the get-api-mappings, but how could I import the mappings back in case the mappings get deleted and need to be restored? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you,

According to your question, you have a question to restore the exported API Gateway mappings.

Through the steps, you can restore the API Gateway mappings:

  1. Export the mappings and save as a JSON file
aws apigateway get-mappings --domain-name <Domain_Name>
  1. Create new mappings with the exported mapping file
aws apigateway create-mapping --domain-name <Domain_Name> --cli-input-json <Mapping_File>
