AWS AppSync

Leave Feedback


AWS AppSync is a managed service that uses GraphQL. Application development is simplified with a flexible API that securely accesses, manipulates, and combines data from one or more data sources.

With AppSync, scalable applications can be built:

  • With real-time updates.
  • On a range of data sources (such as NoSQL data stores, relational databases, HTTP APIs).
  • For custom data sources with AWS Lambda.

For mobile and web apps, AppSync provides:

  • Local data access when devices go offline,
  • Data synchronization with customizable conflict resolution when devices are back online.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select AppSync API.
