Stage variables are name-value pairs that are defined as configuration attributes. These variables are associated with a deployment stage of a REST API, act like environment variables, and can be used in your API setup and mapping templates.

For example, you can define a stage variable in a stage configuration, and set its value as the URL string of an HTTP integration for a method in your REST API. Later, you can reference the URL string using the associated stage variable name from the API setup.

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
