When setting up a microservice architecture, each individual service is often owned and managed by a different team. To achieve a higher level of resource isolation, and allow for more granular security and cost management, each service team usually deploys its resources into a dedicated AWS account. While this type of distributed approach offers many benefits in terms of productivity, scalability, and resiliency, it introduces another layer of complexity in regard to AWS cross-account communication and microservice consumption. In this blog post, I would like to show you how you can leverage AWS services like Amazon API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, and VPC Endpoints in combination with Terraform to build a fully-managed and serverless cross-account microservice architecture.

When implementing REST APIs in AWS there is one service that always comes to mind - Amazon API Gateway. Even though feature-rich, properly documenting your API may become a time-consuming task relatively quickly. In this post, I would like to show you how you can use Swagger UI in combination with a serverless deployment to automatically generate interactive and up-to-date documentation for your APIs.
