Integration Types

There are 4 types of integration type, can be used to integrate other services with API Gateway.

  1. HTTP or HTTP Custom Integration A custom http endpoint, need to set up mapping
  2. HTTP_PROXY Use for http endpoint, no needs for any mapping
  3. AWS (For Serverless/Lambda)
  4. AWS_PROXY (For Serverless/Lambda)

With proxy integration, there is no need for any mapping and it is easier, it just redirect all the requests, parameters and payloads to the defined endpoint.
