How to setting an ssh connection on a Virtualbox Ubuntu

Create an Ubuntu Virtualbox

Create a new Virtual Machine and check Create a new virtual disk

Name your virtualmachine, select Linux as OS type and Ubuntu (64 bit) as linux version.

Set the virtual RAM at half of the your real RAM, in my case I have 8gb on my laptop, so i give to virtual machine 4gb

Create a new virtual disk:

Select the source for install your Ubuntu OS, select VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image)

Select Dynamic allocation:

Set the size of your virtual Hard Disk and click on create:

Start your Machine:

Select the iso image of ubuntu (You must download it from ubuntu official web site).

Install Ubuntu following the installation wizard:

After have installed Ubuntu, login your virtualmachine ubuntu with username and password inserted during the installation:

Install openssh-server

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

stop your virtualmachine.

Set the net of your virtualmachine:

click on settings & net:

Select NAT as connection and click on advanced, and set as in the picture below.

Click on port forwarding:

and set the SSH parameter:

Name: SSH

Protocol: TCP

Host IP: 127.0.0.1

Host Port: 2222

IP Guest: Empty

Port Guest: 22

Start your Virtual Machine:

When your VM is started, open your terminal and try to connect:

ssh yourusername@127.0.0.1 -p 2222

now you shoud be inside your virtualmachine.

Problems and Possible Solutions:

If you can’t connect try to disable or change settings to ubuntu firewall:

sudo ufw disable

or try to connect to the ip of VM:

click on global tools:

Click on create:

Back to Settings > Network and select adapter 1

Select Adapter only Host.

go inside the VM and get the ip number with ifconfig and get ip address:

ifconfig

In my case the ip is 192.168.56.101

now from terminal I try to connect in ssh to the ip 192.168.56.101

ssh yourusername@192.168.56.101

A Simple Wrapper Around Amplify AppSync Simulator

This serverless plugin is a wrapper for amplify-appsync-simulator made for testing AppSync APIs built with serverless-appsync-plugin.

Install

npm install serverless-appsync-simulator
# or
yarn add serverless-appsync-simulator

Usage

This plugin relies on your serverless yml file and on the serverless-offline plugin.

plugins:
  - serverless-dynamodb-local # only if you need dynamodb resolvers and you don't have an external dynamodb
  - serverless-appsync-simulator
  - serverless-offline

Note: Order is important serverless-appsync-simulator must go before serverless-offline

To start the simulator, run the following command:

sls offline start

You should see in the logs something like:

...
Serverless: AppSync endpoint: http://localhost:20002/graphql
Serverless: GraphiQl: http://localhost:20002
...

Configuration

Put options under custom.appsync-simulator in your serverless.yml file

| option | default | description | | ------------------------ | -------------------------- | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | --------- | | apiKey | 0123456789 | When using API_KEY as authentication type, the key to authenticate to the endpoint. | | port | 20002 | AppSync operations port; if using multiple APIs, the value of this option will be used as a starting point, and each other API will have a port of lastPort + 10 (e.g. 20002, 20012, 20022, etc.) | | wsPort | 20003 | AppSync subscriptions port; if using multiple APIs, the value of this option will be used as a starting point, and each other API will have a port of lastPort + 10 (e.g. 20003, 20013, 20023, etc.) | | location | . (base directory) | Location of the lambda functions handlers. | | refMap | {} | A mapping of resource resolutions for the Ref function | | getAttMap | {} | A mapping of resource resolutions for the GetAtt function | | importValueMap | {} | A mapping of resource resolutions for the ImportValue function | | functions | {} | A mapping of external functions for providing invoke url for external fucntions | | dynamoDb.endpoint | http://localhost:8000 | Dynamodb endpoint. Specify it if you're not using serverless-dynamodb-local. Otherwise, port is taken from dynamodb-local conf | | dynamoDb.region | localhost | Dynamodb region. Specify it if you're connecting to a remote Dynamodb intance. | | dynamoDb.accessKeyId | DEFAULT_ACCESS_KEY | AWS Access Key ID to access DynamoDB | | dynamoDb.secretAccessKey | DEFAULT_SECRET | AWS Secret Key to access DynamoDB | | dynamoDb.sessionToken | DEFAULT_ACCESS_TOKEEN | AWS Session Token to access DynamoDB, only if you have temporary security credentials configured on AWS | | dynamoDb.* | | You can add every configuration accepted by DynamoDB SDK | | rds.dbName | | Name of the database | | rds.dbHost | | Database host | | rds.dbDialect | | Database dialect. Possible values (mysql | postgres) | | rds.dbUsername | | Database username | | rds.dbPassword | | Database password | | rds.dbPort | | Database port | | watch | - *.graphql
- *.vtl | Array of glob patterns to watch for hot-reloading. |

Example:

custom:
  appsync-simulator:
    location: '.webpack/service' # use webpack build directory
    dynamoDb:
      endpoint: 'http://my-custom-dynamo:8000'

Hot-reloading

By default, the simulator will hot-relad when changes to *.graphql or *.vtl files are detected. Changes to *.yml files are not supported (yet? - this is a Serverless Framework limitation). You will need to restart the simulator each time you change yml files.

Hot-reloading relies on watchman. Make sure it is installed on your system.

You can change the files being watched with the watch option, which is then passed to watchman as the match expression.

e.g.

custom:
  appsync-simulator:
    watch:
      - ["match", "handlers/**/*.vtl", "wholename"] # => array is interpreted as the literal match expression
      - "*.graphql"                                 # => string like this is equivalent to `["match", "*.graphql"]`

Or you can opt-out by leaving an empty array or set the option to false

Note: Functions should not require hot-reloading, unless you are using a transpiler or a bundler (such as webpack, babel or typescript), un which case you should delegate hot-reloading to that instead.

Resource CloudFormation functions resolution

This plugin supports some resources resolution from the Ref, Fn::GetAtt and Fn::ImportValue functions in your yaml file. It also supports some other Cfn functions such as Fn::Join, Fb::Sub, etc.

Note: Under the hood, this features relies on the cfn-resolver-lib package. For more info on supported cfn functions, refer to the documentation

Basic usage

You can reference resources in your functions' environment variables (that will be accessible from your lambda functions) or datasource definitions. The plugin will automatically resolve them for you.

provider:
  environment:
    BUCKET_NAME:
      Ref: MyBucket # resolves to `my-bucket-name`

resources:
  Resources:
    MyDbTable:
      Type: AWS::DynamoDB::Table
      Properties:
        TableName: myTable
      ...
    MyBucket:
      Type: AWS::S3::Bucket
      Properties:
        BucketName: my-bucket-name
    ...

# in your appsync config
dataSources:
  - type: AMAZON_DYNAMODB
    name: dynamosource
    config:
      tableName:
        Ref: MyDbTable # resolves to `myTable`

Override (or mock) values

Sometimes, some references cannot be resolved, as they come from an Output from Cloudformation; or you might want to use mocked values in your local environment.

In those cases, you can define (or override) those values using the refMap, getAttMap and importValueMap options.

  • refMap takes a mapping of resource name to value pairs
  • getAttMap takes a mapping of resource name to attribute/values pairs
  • importValueMap takes a mapping of import name to values pairs

Example:

custom:
  appsync-simulator:
    refMap:
      # Override `MyDbTable` resolution from the previous example.
      MyDbTable: 'mock-myTable'
    getAttMap:
      # define ElasticSearchInstance DomainName
      ElasticSearchInstance:
        DomainEndpoint: 'localhost:9200'
    importValueMap:
      other-service-api-url: 'https://other.api.url.com/graphql'

# in your appsync config
dataSources:
  - type: AMAZON_ELASTICSEARCH
    name: elasticsource
    config:
      # endpoint resolves as 'http://localhost:9200'
      endpoint:
        Fn::Join:
          - ''
          - - https://
            - Fn::GetAtt:
                - ElasticSearchInstance
                - DomainEndpoint

Key-value mock notation

In some special cases you will need to use key-value mock nottation. Good example can be case when you need to include serverless stage value (${self:provider.stage}) in the import name.

This notation can be used with all mocks - refMap, getAttMap and importValueMap

provider:
  environment:
    FINISH_ACTIVITY_FUNCTION_ARN:
      Fn::ImportValue: other-service-api-${self:provider.stage}-url

custom:
  serverless-appsync-simulator:
    importValueMap:
      - key: other-service-api-${self:provider.stage}-url
        value: 'https://other.api.url.com/graphql'

Limitations

This plugin only tries to resolve the following parts of the yml tree:

  • provider.environment
  • functions[*].environment
  • custom.appSync

If you have the need of resolving others, feel free to open an issue and explain your use case.

For now, the supported resources to be automatically resovled by Ref: are:

  • DynamoDb tables
  • S3 Buckets

Feel free to open a PR or an issue to extend them as well.

External functions

When a function is not defined withing the current serverless file you can still call it by providing an invoke url which should point to a REST method. Make sure you specify "get" or "post" for the method. Default is "get", but you probably want "post".

custom:
  appsync-simulator:
    functions:
      addUser:
        url: http://localhost:3016/2015-03-31/functions/addUser/invocations
        method: post
      addPost:
        url: https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts
        method: post

Supported Resolver types

This plugin supports resolvers implemented by amplify-appsync-simulator, as well as custom resolvers.

From Aws Amplify:

  • NONE
  • AWS_LAMBDA
  • AMAZON_DYNAMODB
  • PIPELINE

Implemented by this plugin

  "statements":   [
    "UPDATE <name-of-table> set deleted_at=NOW() WHERE id=:ID",
    "SELECT * FROM <name-of-table> WHERE id=:ID and unix_timestamp > $ctx.args.newerThan"
  ],
  variableMap: {
    ":ID": $ctx.args.id,
##    ":TIMESTAMP": $ctx.args.newerThan -- This will be handled as a string!!!
  }
}

Serverless APIGateway Service Proxy

Serverless APIGateway Service Proxy

This Serverless Framework plugin supports the AWS service proxy integration feature of API Gateway. You can directly connect API Gateway to AWS services without Lambda.

Install

Run serverless plugin install in your Serverless project.

serverless plugin install -n serverless-apigateway-service-proxy

Supported AWS services

Here is a services list which this plugin supports for now. But will expand to other services in the feature. Please pull request if you are intersted in it.

  • Kinesis Streams
  • SQS
  • S3
  • SNS
  • DynamoDB
  • EventBridge

How to use

Define settings of the AWS services you want to integrate under custom > apiGatewayServiceProxies and run serverless deploy.

Kinesis

Sample syntax for Kinesis proxy in serverless.yml.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis: # partitionkey is set apigateway requestid by default
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        partitionKey: 'hardcordedkey' # use static partitionkey
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis/{myKey} # use path parameter
        method: post
        partitionKey:
          pathParam: myKey
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        partitionKey:
          bodyParam: data.myKey # use body parameter
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        partitionKey:
          queryStringParam: myKey # use query string param
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true
    - kinesis: # PutRecords
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        action: PutRecords
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true

resources:
  Resources:
    YourStream:
      Type: AWS::Kinesis::Stream
      Properties:
        ShardCount: 1

Sample request after deploying.

curl https://xxxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/kinesis -d '{"message": "some data"}'  -H 'Content-Type:application/json'

SQS

Sample syntax for SQS proxy in serverless.yml.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /sqs
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SQSQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        cors: true

resources:
  Resources:
    SQSQueue:
      Type: 'AWS::SQS::Queue'

Sample request after deploying.

curl https://xxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/sqs -d '{"message": "testtest"}' -H 'Content-Type:application/json'

Customizing request parameters

If you'd like to pass additional data to the integration request, you can do so by including your custom API Gateway request parameters in serverless.yml like so:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /queue
        method: post
        queueName: !GetAtt MyQueue.QueueName
        cors: true

        requestParameters:
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Name': "'cognitoIdentityId'"
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Value.StringValue': 'context.identity.cognitoIdentityId'
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Value.DataType': "'String'"
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.2.Name': "'cognitoAuthenticationProvider'"
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.2.Value.StringValue': 'context.identity.cognitoAuthenticationProvider'
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.2.Value.DataType': "'String'"

The alternative way to pass MessageAttribute parameters is via a request body mapping template.

Customizing request body mapping templates

See the SQS section under Customizing request body mapping templates

Customizing responses

Simplified response template customization

You can get a simple customization of the responses by providing a template for the possible responses. The template is assumed to be application/json.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /queue
        method: post
        queueName: !GetAtt MyQueue.QueueName
        cors: true
        response:
          template:
            # `success` is used when the integration response is 200
            success: |-
              { "message: "accepted" }
            # `clientError` is used when the integration response is 400
            clientError: |-
              { "message": "there is an error in your request" }
            # `serverError` is used when the integration response is 500
            serverError: |-
              { "message": "there was an error handling your request" }

Full response customization

If you want more control over the integration response, you can provide an array of objects for the response value:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /queue
        method: post
        queueName: !GetAtt MyQueue.QueueName
        cors: true
        response:
          - statusCode: 200
            selectionPattern: '2\\d{2}'
            responseParameters: {}
            responseTemplates:
              application/json: |-
                { "message": "accepted" }

The object keys correspond to the API Gateway integration response object.

S3

Sample syntax for S3 proxy in serverless.yml.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3
        method: post
        action: PutObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        key: static-key.json # use static key
        cors: true

    - s3:
        path: /s3/{myKey} # use path param
        method: get
        action: GetObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        key:
          pathParam: myKey
        cors: true

    - s3:
        path: /s3
        method: delete
        action: DeleteObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        key:
          queryStringParam: key # use query string param
        cors: true

resources:
  Resources:
    S3Bucket:
      Type: 'AWS::S3::Bucket'

Sample request after deploying.

curl https://xxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/s3 -d '{"message": "testtest"}' -H 'Content-Type:application/json'

Customizing request parameters

Similar to the SQS support, you can customize the default request parameters serverless.yml like so:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3
        method: post
        action: PutObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        cors: true

        requestParameters:
          # if requestParameters has a 'integration.request.path.object' property you should remove the key setting
          'integration.request.path.object': 'context.requestId'
          'integration.request.header.cache-control': "'public, max-age=31536000, immutable'"

Customizing request templates

If you'd like use custom API Gateway request templates, you can do so like so:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3
        method: get
        action: GetObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        request:
          template:
            application/json: |
              #set ($specialStuff = $context.request.header.x-special)
              #set ($context.requestOverride.path.object = $specialStuff.replaceAll('_', '-'))
              {}

Note that if the client does not provide a Content-Type header in the request, ApiGateway defaults to application/json.

Customize the Path Override in API Gateway

Added the new customization parameter that lets the user set a custom Path Override in API Gateway other than the {bucket}/{object} This parameter is optional and if not set, will fall back to {bucket}/{object} The Path Override will add {bucket}/ automatically in front

Please keep in mind, that key or path.object still needs to be set at the moment (maybe this will be made optional later on with this)

Usage (With 2 Path Parameters (folder and file and a fixed file extension)):

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3/{folder}/{file}
        method: get
        action: GetObject
        pathOverride: '{folder}/{file}.xml'
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        cors: true

        requestParameters:
          # if requestParameters has a 'integration.request.path.object' property you should remove the key setting
          'integration.request.path.folder': 'method.request.path.folder'
          'integration.request.path.file': 'method.request.path.file'
          'integration.request.path.object': 'context.requestId'
          'integration.request.header.cache-control': "'public, max-age=31536000, immutable'"

This will result in API Gateway setting the Path Override attribute to {bucket}/{folder}/{file}.xml So for example if you navigate to the API Gatway endpoint /language/en it will fetch the file in S3 from {bucket}/language/en.xml

Can use greedy, for deeper Folders

The forementioned example can also be shortened by a greedy approach. Thanks to @taylorreece for mentioning this.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3/{myPath+}
        method: get
        action: GetObject
        pathOverride: '{myPath}.xml'
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        cors: true

        requestParameters:
          # if requestParameters has a 'integration.request.path.object' property you should remove the key setting
          'integration.request.path.myPath': 'method.request.path.myPath'
          'integration.request.path.object': 'context.requestId'
          'integration.request.header.cache-control': "'public, max-age=31536000, immutable'"

This will translate for example /s3/a/b/c to a/b/c.xml

Customizing responses

You can get a simple customization of the responses by providing a template for the possible responses. The template is assumed to be application/json.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - s3:
        path: /s3
        method: post
        action: PutObject
        bucket:
          Ref: S3Bucket
        key: static-key.json
        response:
          template:
            # `success` is used when the integration response is 200
            success: |-
              { "message: "accepted" }
            # `clientError` is used when the integration response is 400
            clientError: |-
              { "message": "there is an error in your request" }
            # `serverError` is used when the integration response is 500
            serverError: |-
              { "message": "there was an error handling your request" }

SNS

Sample syntax for SNS proxy in serverless.yml.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sns:
        path: /sns
        method: post
        topicName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SNSTopic', 'TopicName'] }
        cors: true

resources:
  Resources:
    SNSTopic:
      Type: AWS::SNS::Topic

Sample request after deploying.

curl https://xxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/sns -d '{"message": "testtest"}' -H 'Content-Type:application/json'

Customizing responses

Simplified response template customization

You can get a simple customization of the responses by providing a template for the possible responses. The template is assumed to be application/json.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sns:
        path: /sns
        method: post
        topicName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SNSTopic', 'TopicName'] }
        cors: true
        response:
          template:
            # `success` is used when the integration response is 200
            success: |-
              { "message: "accepted" }
            # `clientError` is used when the integration response is 400
            clientError: |-
              { "message": "there is an error in your request" }
            # `serverError` is used when the integration response is 500
            serverError: |-
              { "message": "there was an error handling your request" }

Full response customization

If you want more control over the integration response, you can provide an array of objects for the response value:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sns:
        path: /sns
        method: post
        topicName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SNSTopic', 'TopicName'] }
        cors: true
        response:
          - statusCode: 200
            selectionPattern: '2\d{2}'
            responseParameters: {}
            responseTemplates:
              application/json: |-
                { "message": "accepted" }

The object keys correspond to the API Gateway integration response object.

Content Handling and Pass Through Behaviour customization

If you want to work with binary fata, you can not specify contentHandling and PassThrough inside the request object.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sns:
        path: /sns
        method: post
        topicName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SNSTopic', 'TopicName'] }
        request:
          contentHandling: CONVERT_TO_TEXT
          passThrough: WHEN_NO_TEMPLATES

The allowed values correspond with the API Gateway Method integration for ContentHandling and PassthroughBehavior

DynamoDB

Sample syntax for DynamoDB proxy in serverless.yml. Currently, the supported DynamoDB Operations are PutItem, GetItem and DeleteItem.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - dynamodb:
        path: /dynamodb/{id}/{sort}
        method: put
        tableName: { Ref: 'YourTable' }
        hashKey: # set pathParam or queryStringParam as a partitionkey.
          pathParam: id
          attributeType: S
        rangeKey: # required if also using sort key. set pathParam or queryStringParam.
          pathParam: sort
          attributeType: S
        action: PutItem # specify action to the table what you want
        condition: attribute_not_exists(Id) # optional Condition Expressions parameter for the table
        cors: true
    - dynamodb:
        path: /dynamodb
        method: get
        tableName: { Ref: 'YourTable' }
        hashKey:
          queryStringParam: id # use query string parameter
          attributeType: S
        rangeKey:
          queryStringParam: sort
          attributeType: S
        action: GetItem
        cors: true
    - dynamodb:
        path: /dynamodb/{id}
        method: delete
        tableName: { Ref: 'YourTable' }
        hashKey:
          pathParam: id
          attributeType: S
        action: DeleteItem
        cors: true

resources:
  Resources:

EventBridge

Sample syntax for EventBridge proxy in serverless.yml.

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - eventbridge:  # source and detailType are hardcoded; detail defaults to POST body
        path: /eventbridge
        method: post
        source: 'hardcoded_source'
        detailType: 'hardcoded_detailType'

        cors: true
    - eventbridge:  # source and detailType as path parameters
        path: /eventbridge/{detailTypeKey}/{sourceKey}
        method: post
        detailType:
          pathParam: detailTypeKey
        source:
          pathParam: sourceKey
        eventBusName: { Ref: 'YourBusName' }
        cors: true
    - eventbridge:  # source, detail, and detailType as body parameters
        path: /eventbridge/{detailTypeKey}/{sourceKey}
        method: post
        detailType:
          bodyParam: data.detailType
        source:
          bodyParam: data.source
        detail:
          bodyParam: data.detail

Common API Gateway features

Enabling CORS

To set CORS configurations for your HTTP endpoints, simply modify your event configurations as follows:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors: true

Setting cors to true assumes a default configuration which is equivalent to:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors:
          origin: '*'
          headers:
            - Content-Type
            - X-Amz-Date
            - Authorization
            - X-Api-Key
            - X-Amz-Security-Token
            - X-Amz-User-Agent
          allowCredentials: false

Configuring the cors property sets Access-Control-Allow-Origin, Access-Control-Allow-Headers, Access-Control-Allow-Methods,Access-Control-Allow-Credentials headers in the CORS preflight response. To enable the Access-Control-Max-Age preflight response header, set the maxAge property in the cors object:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors:
          origin: '*'
          maxAge: 86400

If you are using CloudFront or another CDN for your API Gateway, you may want to setup a Cache-Control header to allow for OPTIONS request to be cached to avoid the additional hop.

To enable the Cache-Control header on preflight response, set the cacheControl property in the cors object:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'YourStream' }
        cors:
          origin: '*'
          headers:
            - Content-Type
            - X-Amz-Date
            - Authorization
            - X-Api-Key
            - X-Amz-Security-Token
            - X-Amz-User-Agent
          allowCredentials: false
          cacheControl: 'max-age=600, s-maxage=600, proxy-revalidate' # Caches on browser and proxy for 10 minutes and doesnt allow proxy to serve out of date content

Adding Authorization

You can pass in any supported authorization type:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /sqs
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SQSQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        cors: true

        # optional - defaults to 'NONE'
        authorizationType: 'AWS_IAM' # can be one of ['NONE', 'AWS_IAM', 'CUSTOM', 'COGNITO_USER_POOLS']

        # when using 'CUSTOM' authorization type, one should specify authorizerId
        # authorizerId: { Ref: 'AuthorizerLogicalId' }
        # when using 'COGNITO_USER_POOLS' authorization type, one can specify a list of authorization scopes
        # authorizationScopes: ['scope1','scope2']

resources:
  Resources:
    SQSQueue:
      Type: 'AWS::SQS::Queue'

Source: AWS::ApiGateway::Method docs

Enabling API Token Authentication

You can indicate whether the method requires clients to submit a valid API key using private flag:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /sqs
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SQSQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        cors: true
        private: true

resources:
  Resources:
    SQSQueue:
      Type: 'AWS::SQS::Queue'

which is the same syntax used in Serverless framework.

Source: Serverless: Setting API keys for your Rest API

Source: AWS::ApiGateway::Method docs

Using a Custom IAM Role

By default, the plugin will generate a role with the required permissions for each service type that is configured.

You can configure your own role by setting the roleArn attribute:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /sqs
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SQSQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        cors: true
        roleArn: # Optional. A default role is created when not configured
          Fn::GetAtt: [CustomS3Role, Arn]

resources:
  Resources:
    SQSQueue:
      Type: 'AWS::SQS::Queue'
    CustomS3Role:
      # Custom Role definition
      Type: 'AWS::IAM::Role'

Customizing API Gateway parameters

The plugin allows one to specify which parameters the API Gateway method accepts.

A common use case is to pass custom data to the integration request:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /sqs
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SqsQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        cors: true
        acceptParameters:
          'method.request.header.Custom-Header': true
        requestParameters:
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Name': "'custom-Header'"
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Value.StringValue': 'method.request.header.Custom-Header'
          'integration.request.querystring.MessageAttribute.1.Value.DataType': "'String'"
resources:
  Resources:
    SqsQueue:
      Type: 'AWS::SQS::Queue'

Any published SQS message will have the Custom-Header value added as a message attribute.

Customizing request body mapping templates

Kinesis

If you'd like to add content types or customize the default templates, you can do so by including your custom API Gateway request mapping template in serverless.yml like so:

# Required for using Fn::Sub
plugins:
  - serverless-cloudformation-sub-variables

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'MyStream' }
        request:
          template:
            text/plain:
              Fn::Sub:
                - |
                  #set($msgBody = $util.parseJson($input.body))
                  #set($msgId = $msgBody.MessageId)
                  {
                      "Data": "$util.base64Encode($input.body)",
                      "PartitionKey": "$msgId",
                      "StreamName": "#{MyStreamArn}"
                  }
                - MyStreamArn:
                    Fn::GetAtt: [MyStream, Arn]

It is important that the mapping template will return a valid application/json string

Source: How to connect SNS to Kinesis for cross-account delivery via API Gateway

SQS

Customizing SQS request templates requires us to force all requests to use an application/x-www-form-urlencoded style body. The plugin sets the Content-Type header to application/x-www-form-urlencoded for you, but API Gateway will still look for the template under the application/json request template type, so that is where you need to configure you request body in serverless.yml:

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - sqs:
        path: /{version}/event/receiver
        method: post
        queueName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SqsQueue', 'QueueName'] }
        request:
          template:
            application/json: |-
              #set ($body = $util.parseJson($input.body))
              Action=SendMessage##
              &MessageGroupId=$util.urlEncode($body.event_type)##
              &MessageDeduplicationId=$util.urlEncode($body.event_id)##
              &MessageAttribute.1.Name=$util.urlEncode("X-Custom-Signature")##
              &MessageAttribute.1.Value.DataType=String##
              &MessageAttribute.1.Value.StringValue=$util.urlEncode($input.params("X-Custom-Signature"))##
              &MessageBody=$util.urlEncode($input.body)

Note that the ## at the end of each line is an empty comment. In VTL this has the effect of stripping the newline from the end of the line (as it is commented out), which makes API Gateway read all the lines in the template as one line.

Be careful when mixing additional requestParameters into your SQS endpoint as you may overwrite the integration.request.header.Content-Type and stop the request template from being parsed correctly. You may also unintentionally create conflicts between parameters passed using requestParameters and those in your request template. Typically you should only use the request template if you need to manipulate the incoming request body in some way.

Your custom template must also set the Action and MessageBody parameters, as these will not be added for you by the plugin.

When using a custom request body, headers sent by a client will no longer be passed through to the SQS queue (PassthroughBehavior is automatically set to NEVER). You will need to pass through headers sent by the client explicitly in the request body. Also, any custom querystring parameters in the requestParameters array will be ignored. These also need to be added via the custom request body.

SNS

Similar to the Kinesis support, you can customize the default request mapping templates in serverless.yml like so:

# Required for using Fn::Sub
plugins:
  - serverless-cloudformation-sub-variables

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /sns
        method: post
        topicName: { 'Fn::GetAtt': ['SNSTopic', 'TopicName'] }
        request:
          template:
            application/json:
              Fn::Sub:
                - "Action=Publish&Message=$util.urlEncode('This is a fixed message')&TopicArn=$util.urlEncode('#{MyTopicArn}')"
                - MyTopicArn: { Ref: MyTopic }

It is important that the mapping template will return a valid application/x-www-form-urlencoded string

Source: Connect AWS API Gateway directly to SNS using a service integration

Custom response body mapping templates

You can customize the response body by providing mapping templates for success, server errors (5xx) and client errors (4xx).

Templates must be in JSON format. If a template isn't provided, the integration response will be returned as-is to the client.

Kinesis Example

custom:
  apiGatewayServiceProxies:
    - kinesis:
        path: /kinesis
        method: post
        streamName: { Ref: 'MyStream' }
        response:
          template:
            success: |
              {
                "success": true
              }
            serverError: |
              {
                "success": false,
                "errorMessage": "Server Error"
              }
            clientError: |
              {
                "success": false,
                "errorMessage": "Client Error"
              }

PostgreSQL Connection Pooling: Part 4 – PgBouncer vs. Pgpool-II

In our previous posts in this series, we spoke at length about using PgBouncer  and Pgpool-II , the connection pool architecture and pros and cons of leveraging one for your PostgreSQL deployment. In our final post, we will put them head-to-head in a detailed feature comparison and compare the results of PgBouncer vs. Pgpool-II performance for your PostgreSQL hosting !

The bottom line – Pgpool-II is a great tool if you need load-balancing and high availability. Connection pooling is almost a bonus you get alongside. PgBouncer does only one thing, but does it really well. If the objective is to limit the number of connections and reduce resource consumption, PgBouncer wins hands down.

It is also perfectly fine to use both PgBouncer and Pgpool-II in a chain – you can have a PgBouncer to provide connection pooling, which talks to a Pgpool-II instance that provides high availability and load balancing. This gives you the best of both worlds!

Performance Testing

While PgBouncer may seem to be the better option in theory, theory can often be misleading. So, we pitted the two connection poolers head-to-head, using the standard pgbench tool, to see which one provides better transactions per second throughput through a benchmark test. For good measure, we ran the same tests without a connection pooler too.

Testing Conditions

All of the PostgreSQL benchmark tests were run under the following conditions:

  1. Initialized pgbench using a scale factor of 100.
  2. Disabled auto-vacuuming on the PostgreSQL instance to prevent interference.
  3. No other workload was working at the time.
  4. Used the default pgbench script to run the tests.
  5. Used default settings for both PgBouncer and Pgpool-II, except max_children*. All PostgreSQL limits were also set to their defaults.
  6. All tests ran as a single thread, on a single-CPU, 2-core machine, for a duration of 5 minutes.
  7. Forced pgbench to create a new connection for each transaction using the -C option. This emulates modern web application workloads and is the whole reason to use a pooler!

We ran each iteration for 5 minutes to ensure any noise averaged out. Here is how the middleware was installed:

  • For PgBouncer, we installed it on the same box as the PostgreSQL server(s). This is the configuration we use in our managed PostgreSQL clusters. Since PgBouncer is a very light-weight process, installing it on the box has no impact on overall performance.
  • For Pgpool-II, we tested both when the Pgpool-II instance was installed on the same machine as PostgreSQL (on box column), and when it was installed on a different machine (off box column). As expected, the performance is much better when Pgpool-II is off the box as it doesn’t have to compete with the PostgreSQL server for resources.

VirtualBox Ubuntu Guests Can Share Host Folders

When using VirtualBox you can share folders from the host computer to guest machines. Guest machines can be Windows, Linux or MacOS.

This is made possible by VirtualBox host folder sharing feature. Folder sharing exposes the host computer files and folders to the virtual machines.In order for this to work, you must by running the latest version of VirtualBox virtualization software with the current version of guest additions tools. You’ll have to enable bidirectional sharing from the host software, and the steps below show you how to do that.
