  1. Allow scopes to be added to OIDC token request when testing APIs in the Developer Portal

    Scopes are commonly used to authorize requests to API operations and the current JWT policies allow scopes to be used for this.
    However, if an API uses scopes to authorize access then these APIs cannot be tested via the Developer Portal because there is no way to add resource scopes to the token request made by the portal on the developer's behalf.

  2. Improvide rendering of API specification

    Todays presentation of an API is limited to the operations, sample request/response and schema. It be very useful if (for OpenAPI specifications) the Developer Portal could render the API with the Model datatypes, restrictions etc similar to what swagger-ui/ReDoc does.

  4. Open Id Connect - add required scopes in Developer Portal

    Currently it is not possible to add required scopes (or any additional URL or body parameters) to authorize requests.
    I think it is possible for OAuth0 integration.
    It might be worthwhile to add such possibility.

  5. Save data when testing API

    It would be awesome and saves time if API Management saves data history that is being used to test API

  7. Azure developer portal. UserProfile template. Add custom fields

    in Azure developer portal 'User profile template' is limited to use built-in user's properties

    I would like to add more fields e.g. company address, user's group, user available time etc into User profile in Azure developer portal.

    At this moment it is impossible

  8. Need documentation for Azure API Management REST API version 2018-06-01-preview

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/apimanagement/apimanagementrest/azure-api-management-rest-api-authentication#ManuallyCreateToken

    From the above link I am seeing content is old. could you please provide proper documentation for Azure API Management REST API version (2018-06-01-preview).

    Based on the new version of REST API I need to implement developer login delegation. I am not able to find proper documentation for integrating latest Azure API Management REST API (version 2018-06-01-preview).Mainly access token generation(SharedAccessSignature) for REST API version 2018-06-01-preview

  9. Improve C# code sample template for PATCH operations

    Currently, the C# code sample template doesn't have a case for PATCH operations (other Http methods are listed). Would be good to fix this gap in the interest of completeness.

  10. Render placeholders for request headers in sample code templates

    The code samples in the developer portal (curl, c#, java, etc.) do not render a placeholder value for request header parameters, aside from a few special ones like subscription key, authorization, content-type, etc. I can fix this in the Liquid template, but this might be a good improvement for APIM out of the box.

    For example, if I have the following required header parameter defined in my OpenApi definition for a PATCH request:
    {
    "name": "If-Match",
    "in": "header",
    "description": " ETag of the entity",
    "required": true,
    "type": "string"
    }

    The Curl code sample renders this header without any {placeholder} value…

  11. allow developer/management portal access from region close to developer.

    For a premium tier multi region setup, allow developer/management portal access from region close to developer. Or allow to make other unit as primary so that developers can still access portals in case they have issues accessing primary unit which hosts all portals

  13. Host and manage API documentation that is easy to edit, publish and manage

    As today, we do not have a simple way to publish documents (PDFs, Excel, etc..) in the developer portal.

    We would like to have a way to publish public documents, documents shared across products, product-related documents and api-related documents.
    Some of this content is managed by the API analyst, other is managed by the API PM and they want to manage the content indipendently from the release pipeline of an API.

    It would be nice to have a blob container per scenario (public, private, per product, per api) and the developer portal takes care to render the content of the…

  14. Customize redirection from signin/signup page to Home page instead of profile

    Currently when a user signs up from the Developer Portal and then signs in, the user is taken to the Profile page. It would be more presentable and better user experience if there is an option to redirect the user to the Home page upon log in than to the Profile page.

  15. Filtering APIs and operations based on tags

    1. Is it possible to see on the APIs page, while trying to filter based on tags, just the tags correspondent to the APIs and not also the tags defined for operations? (If an user of the API portal will want to filter the APIs it will be difficult to choose a proper tag value because there are, for example, more than 30 tags into the drop down and the actual tags for the APIs are for example just 4-5 … )

    2. Is it possible not to see the tags defined for APIs into the operation page while trying…

  17. Embed Azure DeveloperPortal in a corporate domain site

    The developer portal enables us to import APIs and run them. I would like to be able to embed it into an existing corporate site that is already describing our company, our products, even some APIs documentation in order to have the possibility to run the APIs from there. In this way, we will decrease the number of websites a customer must use in order to access all of our features. It can be annoying to have a website for the company and then another website just for running APIs and then maybe another website for something else, etc.

    We are planning to address this issue as part of our developer portal work.


    Thanks for the feedback. Even though it’s possible to embed API Management developer portal experience into another portal in the true sense, it’s possible to integrate it with another portal for a more seamless experience using delegation – see docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-manageme…

  18. stop forced display of Request Headers

    Hello.
    When adding the "CONTENT TYPE" of Request Body's Representations in the publisher portal, Request Headers is forcibly displayed as "Content-Type (optional)" on the developer portal, so it is in a state that it can not be deleted or edited.
    I want you to stop forced display of Request Headers or make it editable.
    Thank you.

  19. Issues forum: support line feeds

    When posting an issue in the Developer Portal, I find that all the line feeds are not considered and the text becomes all in one line which makes it hard to read the issue.

    Please add support for multiple lines (like in the text box i'm typing in right now) and it would be nice to include some formatting features as well.

    Thanks

  20. Change authenticaion cookie domain for username/password authentication

    When working with delegated authentication and the developer portal of the API manager, you will often be working with multiple websites. E.g. developers.example.com for the developer portal and site.example.com for the rest of your site. The issue is that we cannot reliably log a user out from the site.example.com side, because we cannot remove the '.AspNet.AuthenticationCookie' from that site. If that was a cookie at the domain '.example.com' the site.example.com application could manage it to make sure a user is signed out both sites.
