  1. Increase invitation Timeout

    Hi Team,
    Can we increase the invitation expiration time from 48 hours to 72 hours or longer?
    When we send out invitations on Fridays, most of them are missed, and we have to resend them on Monday again.
    Please take this use case into account.

  2. Ability to update Expired Invite messaging

    Hi Team,
    Can you please add support to customize the language/message in "Invalid invitation token" page?
    We want to use a more user friendly message in our APIM instance, instead of the default one.

    FYI:
    Invalid invitation token
    Please note that confirmation links are valid for only 48 hours. If you are still within this timeframe, please make sure your link is correct. If your link has expired, then please repeat the action you're trying to confirm.

  3. APIM Hybrid connection manager support for accessing on premise web services

    Accessing onPremise web services in APIM is very inconvenient and requires either complex vnet/vpn setup, use of extra products like AAD application gateway or custom coding of API apps combined with a hybrid connection.

    It is not even possible to use logic apps as codeless bridge since LAs are also unable to access on premise web services.

    The option of installing an on premise version of the gateway is also only on a future roadmap and handles a wider use case that just accessing on premise services.

    Request is to support using the hybrid connection manager in the APIM backend…

  4. BUG: Uri for appID is required to be a Url in the management console (instead of any Uri)

    An API has an appID. According to the label over the field this is an URI but the user interface does not allow us to put anything else but an url. We use a custom uri scheme to identify all of our applications and it would be really nice if we can continue to use this. The custom scheme we use is intended to end the confusion on our integrators of when to use a url and when to use an ID.

  5. API Backend

    When browsing for Azure Resource it would be very useful to have the list also show what subscription the logic app belongs to. This way we would minimize the risk of sending data to a production logic app instead of a test. If you have divided them up that way.

  7. Enterprise ACLs

    Enterprise ACLs
    • Will need to control access to specific nodes of the API Manager with inheritance
    Example: If I manage a division I can change the child team's APIs

  8. Split Azure API Manager into two main products

    Split Azure API Manager into two main products

    The Publish and Subscribe should be Enterprise wide while the SOA aspect can be deployed independently by department or application.
    . Enterprise capable Publish and Subscribe
    . Operational SOA layer for Relay and workflow

  9. Make reCaptcha on SignUp page configurable or optional.

    There should be a way to disable or at least tone down the ferocity of the reCaptcha. According to our analytics we lose up to 20% of prospective clients who give up after refreshing 2 or 3 times and still not being able to read the reCaptcha.

  11. Allow setting a "Reply-to" field on all emails

    A user should be able to contact the API support by replying to the emails she receives.

    Emails from the API Management are sent from a 'noreply' address (<apimgmt-noreply@mail.windowsazure.com>). Administrators should have the option to configure a "Reply-To" email address.

  12. Working with Policies in Ibiza

    Hi all,

    here are few recommendations related to user experience when working with policy editor in Ibiza.

    1. Click on 'Save' should save but not close policy editor. How about additional Save and Close button?

    2. FrontEnd blade of an operation should not be empty. It could show all required parameters for operation. Right now, we have to click Edit and see empty screen. Same issue for policies.

  13. Ability to specify notification email proxy

    We use an external API to generate, style and send all our systems' emails. To replicate those email templates in APIM requires a copy/paste in several different template fields. It would be great to specify some endpoint that we can POST/GET to send the APIM email values to a service. We can model the service endpoints to match whatever APIM sends.

  14. Making people API managers

    The method described here, which seems to be the only way, to make people API managers do not work:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/api-management-faq/#how-do-i-add-a-user-to-the-administrators-group

    The developers might have tested the applications with accounts that are already admin on the subscription, and found it working.
    What needs to happen is, ideally to be able manage users, both developers and admin, in the API portal - not in Azure Portal which it doesn it work, anyways.

  15. Stats about cache usage

    It would be a great feature to have the option to see how much of the cache is used, it could be divided into areas like

    Total for the instance it self (all api's)
    pr. api
    pr. api/operation
    etc.

    today it's a blackbox so any insights would be great.

  17. Configure notifications programmatically

    We are populating and configuring our APIs using the REST API ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn776326.aspx ), but there are a few settings that cannot be done programmatically and must be done by clicking into the portal.

    One of these settings is for the email notifications that are sent upon subscription requests, new subscriptions, etc. ( https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/api-management-howto-configure-notifications/#publisher-notifications ). We would like to be able to configure these programmatically, either via the REST API or some other way.

  18. Provide a GUI for editing subscription key parameter names

    Currently, APIM supports the ability to rename (on a per-API basis) the subscription key header/query parameter. This functionality is only available via the REST API, and we’ve made use of this feature to rename the parameter so that it more closely aligns with our company’s brand.

    While using the REST API is reasonable, it would be more convenient to surface these fields in the UI, perhaps on the API page Settings tab or even better as an instance-level setting to serve as the default for any new APIs.

  19. Allow the creation of new Templates

    As an administrator I would like to be able to create a new page template and use it in the custom page content. Also it would be extremely useful to allow the administrator to use an existing template on a custom content page.

  20. Notify portal admins of new features

    Sometimes portal customizations (e.g. custom templates) can override new features (e.g. API definition download links). To remedy this portal it was suggested that portal admins be notified within the portal. Better yet, each time there is a new release, show an error-style line informing the user that there was a new release. Allow this line to be closed manually.
