  1. Add "Subscription count limit" feature for subscriptions without a user

    Right now, the "Subscription count limit" under Product -> Settings applies to the number of subscriptions without a user too. This should not be the case, the number of subscriptions you can create from the Azure Portal, without being assigned to a user, should not be limited to the "Subscription count limit". I understand that this limitation is by design and that currently, this limit applies to a user/product combination. However, subscriptions that have a "null" username should be exempt from this limit. I would suggest having a separate configurable limit here for non-user subscriptions or configuring this number to…

  2. APIM should be able to access open api definition using internal domain.

    Our services are deployed on AKS, and we have our APIM on the same virtual network. Now APIM can use our internal domain to reach our services. Each of our services have an endpoint where we expose our swagger definition (swagger.json file). When we try to create an API using our the accessible endpoint (internal), it doesn't find it. Why it's not possible although APIM belongs to the same network?

  3. Azure API Management - UI/html files not present in Git - These files should be saved in Git to automate CI/CD process

    We are having one issue in Azure API Management Portal. We have created clone from APIM Publisher portal by using the instructions given in publisher portal.

    however we don't see the html changes which we have made in developer portal/publisher portal in Git repository.

    We can see few folders like APIs, Products etc. and in these folders we can see only configuration file and description file(html) however we don't find the html changes which we have made in developer portal.

    When we have to move html changes from one environment to another (Development environment to QA environment), we have to…

  5. Analytics of API Management should include statistics from Self-hosted API Management gateway also

    Analytics of API Management currently does not include the statistics from Self-hosted API Management Gateway.

    This will be a key feature to understand the usage of the self-hosted gateways.

  6. Create product tags on portal

    Tags are able to be added to a variety of API Management resources including service, apis, operations, and products. Tags can be added via ARM, REST, or the Azure portal for each of these resources. For products, tags can only be added via ARM or REST and users are unable to add them via the Azure portal.

  7. Documentation for API Management clone feature

    There doesn't seem to be documentation which describes the functionality of the Clone operation for API Management within the Azure Portal. A user is forced to experiment with the feature. It would improve user experience if there was either in-portal help, or official Microsoft documentation which describes the Clone operation.

  8. APIM Publisher Portal link is broken

    On the blade for APIM, the "Publisher Portal" link no longer brings up the Publisher Portal as of 20190911. It now brings up the non-GA Developer Portal. Please restore the previous functionality, or provide another means to access the trend information.

  9. Limit call rate by key in the Consumption tier

    The rate-limit-by-key policy prevents API usage spikes on a per key basis by limiting the call rate to a specified number per a specified time period. This is really important feature of api managament and it's not available in Consumption tier.

  11. Manage Backends with Azure Portal

    There doesn't seem to be a way to manage Backends with the Azure Portal. You must import a Function App to get the function app as a backend (or ARM Template and create the backend), but there's no way to manually hook up a Backend. There's also no way to clean out old backends.

    Could we add a new item under API Management below APIs called Backends?

  13. Search by API Key within API Management blade from Subscriptions Tab

    It is currently possible to view all subscriptions and filter by Display Name and Owner.
    It is also possible to view individual keys from show/hide keys

    it would be helpful to be able to paste in a subscription key, and have the list filtered to show the subscription the key belongs to.

  14. Allow free trail to create service principal

    When creating a service principal I get
    command used : az ad sp create-for-rbac
    Directory permission is needed for the current user to register the application. For how to configure, please refer 'https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-group-create-service-principal-portal'. Original error: Insufficient privileges to complete the operation.
    I'm on a free trail, and I need the service principal details to allow for automation (using terraform)

  15. Use Azure Key Vault-managed client certificates in Azure API Management

    A while ago we enabled the use of Azure Key Vault-managed SSL certificates for custom domain names in API Management. We are working to expand this feature to certificates used for mutual certificate authentication between the gateway and a backend.

  16. More flexible subscriptions in Azure API Management

    Present model for providing access to APIs is based on product subscriptions owned by a user. Each subscription includes a few properties and a pair of API keys. We are working on expanding this model to allow subscriptions and keys to be owned by a group of users or not be associated with any users at all. This will allow customers the flexibility of creating an ad-hoc set of key or having keys shared by a team of users without worrying about their ownership when members leave or are added to the team.

  17. List and operation all the products for the Groups(Administrators, Developers, etc)

    We are able to find out which groups the product belongs to in product blade, However, if we could find the products in Groups blade and operation(add, remove) in batch, it's will be much better. sorting is also needed for Groups blade if product is integreted.

  18. Enhance transformation policies to support formats such as csv, xlsx, etc.

    It is common to be requested to export data from the API queries to a format that can be shared and easy readable by other non-tech people. So i would say it would be good to be able to enhance the transformation policies to transform from JSON to CSV or XLS/XLSX. Or at least provide an option to export results to these formats on the API Management querying experience.

  19. Search by keywords across all APIs in a APIM instance

    It would be great if we can search for a particular keyword across all operations in all APIs of a particular APIM instance in a subscription.
    Say, I would like to search if a particular operation is called within the other operations of the APIM instance, I should be able to search based on a keyword that lists out all the instances where this is referenced.
