Introducing the new Proxy Editor

You're viewing Apigee X documentation.
View Apigee Edge documentation.

The Proxy Editor in the Apigee UI is the main tool for building and deploying API proxies. Apigee is developing a new version of the Proxy Editor that will make it easier to create and manage proxies.

Improvements to the Proxy Editor include:

  • A more intuitive flow diagram that simplifies the task of adding policies to a proxy.
  • Better error messages to help you diagnose and fix problems quickly.
  • A clearer visual design that makes it easier to find what you need in the Editor.

At present, the new Overview and Develop views in the Proxy Editor have been released. A new version of the Debug view will be released at a future time.

To try the new Proxy Editor, click the Try now button when you see it displayed in the Apigee UI. For now, you can switch back to the classic Proxy Editor whenever you wish. However, keep in mind that the classic version will be removed from the UI in a future release.

You can send feedback about the new Proxy Editor by clicking the feedback button Feedback button at the top-right of the Apigee UI.
