one of our customers has raised a request to use the LAC for creating a new abstractive rest api above an existing Rest Api (as datasource). so far our back end data source was mainly Database and i cannot find any example in documentation for the requested use case.
your help will be much appreciated if you can reference me to such example.
Thanks, #lac #liveapicreatorlac
In the Demo API (included within our single-user/demo package in LAC 5.0), there are two resources:
Hope this helps.
Just to add a bit: you could also use a custom endpoint to receive all requests to a given set of URLs, and then do with these requests as you please. It's a thin layer, but it can be useful in some cases.
Another possibility would be to use the existing REST API as a data source by creating a data source provider. See https://docops.ca.com/ca-live-api-creator/5-0/en/creating-apis/manage-data-source-providers for details. The MongoDB data source provider, which is included in the product in source form, is a good example of turning a REST API (in this case MongoDB) into a fairly full-featured data source.
