gRPC Development with Observability

Updated 1 month ago by Rahul Lahiri

Let us enable API studio to listen to egress requests and responses of RouteGuide service to the RouteGuider service.

Send egress requests from RouteGuideServer through API Studio

The API studio’s proxy is listening for gRPC requests at localhost:9001. So, let us edit the configuration of RouteGuideServer

  • Add an environment variable GUIDER_SERVICE_URL with the value of localhost:9001.
You could also change line 61 in to use localhost:9001 instead of localhost:8981/guider.

  • Restart RouteGuideServer in Intellij to pick up the modified configuration.

Configure request forwarding

Configure forwarding the requests received by the API studio to the Guider service, which is running locally and listening at localhost:8981.

  • Create a new proxy config by clicking the gear icon (2nd from the top right) at the top.

  • Select the grpc-sample proxy config

Run request

Run the request now by clicking the Run button. Once the request completes, you will see the trace of the ingress-egress request. You can look at the details of the egress request and response as well besides the ingress request and response, on the right hand side pane.

How did we do?
