Amazon AppSync is a fully managed service that enables developers to build digital experiences based on real-time data. With AppSync, you can easily configure data sources to push and publish real-time data updates to subscribed clients. AppSync handles connection management, scalability, fan-out and broadcasting, allowing you to focus on your application business needs instead of managing complex infrastructure.

Amazon AppSync introduces a new simplified “Getting Started” experience in the console that allows customers to easily deploy a generic Pub/Sub API with a click of a button. Now, developers can start leveraging AppSync’s subscriptions with no or very little knowledge of GraphQL to deploy APIs for users to publish data and subscribe to receiving data in real-time. The new experience allows developers to download an auto-generated configuration and code that they can quickly integrate in their existing code base. The resulting generic Pub/Sub API can be added to an existing app to enable real-time updates, without changing how the app interacts with existing APIs or data sources. For developers just getting started, the experience also provides a code snippet that shows how to leverage the auto-generate code.

The feature is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. For more details about Amazon AppSync, please Amazon AppSync Developer Guide.
