Transcoding HTTP/JSON API calls to gRPC through API Gateway

In this Project, you will:

Secure a gRPC API via API Gateway and provide the ability to call the API using HTTP/JSON.

Use annotations in your gRPC .proto file to specify data conversion from HTTP/JSON to gRPC.

How to deploy your service on Cloud Run and leverage transcoding to mediate between HTTP/JSON and gRPC.

This is a self-paced lab that takes place in the Google Cloud console. In this lab you learn how to set up an API Gateway to manage access to gRPC APIs by using HTTP/JSON transcoding. Transcoding involves mapping HTTP/JSON requests and their parameters to gRPC methods, parameters and return types. Once API transcoding is properly configured, you will secure access to the API by requiring an API Key to retrieve data.

Skills you will develop
