We recommend that you use the latest version of this feature, which is renamed to Cloud Endpoints Frameworks for App Engine. This new version supports App Engine standard environment, provides lower latency, and has better integration with App Engine. For more details, see Migrating to 2.0.
The Getting Started guide requires that you have or create a Cloud Platform project for the Endpoints backend and install the Google Cloud SDK:
Select or create a new Cloud Platform project in the Google Cloud Platform Console and then ensure an App Engine application exists:
The Dashboard opens if an App Engine application already exists in your project. Otherwise, you are prompted to choose the region where you want your App Engine application located.
If you already have the
gcloudtool installed and want to configure it to use a Cloud Platform project ID other than the one that you initialized it to, see Managing Cloud SDK Configurations.
At this point, you are ready to write backend API code.
