A service is the Fastly term for a set of configuration to apply to an identifiable portion of inbound traffic. Traffic is routed to a service based on the domains which are assigned to it, and the service may forward that traffic to any of its assigned backends.

This selection of APIs therefore exists to create services and define their inputs and outputs. To configure the behavior of services, see the VCL objects section.
