Amazon API Gateway integration with WAF

This pattern in CDK offers a example to generate an Amazon API Gateway with a greedy proxy ("{proxy+}") and "ANY" method from the specified path, meaning it will accept by default any method and any path. The VPC Lambda function provided in JavaScript only returns the path.
