Improve UI re-configuration of API Apps

The configuration an API App is first of all hard to find and to re-configure due to the fact that you need to find the configuration of API app hosts.

The api app is connected to an API App Host which holds the configuration settings. It is not intuitive to let the user find the link to the API host - see attached screenshot. The user should have the possibility to change these settings in the settings blade of the API app already, as well as the API app host.

Thanks for your feedback!

This has been implemented in the latest version of Azure App Service API Apps. Any new API Apps will have a settings tab directly accessible from their blade in the portal.

If you are running a legacy API App you will see upgrade instructions in the portal or can find them here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/app-service-api-whats-changed/#migrating-existing-api-apps

Thanks!

    Oh, my good. This one made me suffer big time. It took me along time to find your blog post that says you have to go to: API App -> Host -> Settings -> AppSettings to find the configuration.

    Nobody will find this. As soon as you have configured an API App inside a Logic App and it shouts an error, you are screwed. I always had to remove the API App from the Logic App and start from scratch. There needs to be a way to fix the problematic configuration inside the logic app.
