- AppSync GraphQL APIs include resolver mapping templates, storage backed up by Amazon DynamoDB, and storage
- AWS Lambda functions can be invoked directly or as resolvers for a GraphQL API.
- Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets are used for storage.
- Amazon Cognito User Pool authentication to GraphQL APIs. However, developers must first obtain a JSON Web Token from the actual service. After that, the JWT can be honored locally.
AWS published guidance last week to help developers get started using the new functionality. The article was titled “Developing, testing and storage graphQL APIs, Functions and Functions with Amplify Framework Local mocking features”. The GitHub site is where Amplify CLI developers can be found.
