API Management

Microsoft Azure API Management is a turnkey solution for publishing APIs to external and internal consumers. Quickly create consistent and modern API gateways for existing backend services hosted anywhere, secure and protect them from abuse and overuse, and gain insights into usage and health. Plus, automate and scale developer onboarding to help get your API program up and running in no time.

How can we improve Azure API Management?

  1. Fix unusable slowness for moderately sized SOAP pass through APIs

    Also posted here:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/974a3b37-32bc-4544-bd55-c6bd3c3b4cc9/why-does-azure-apim-developer-portal-hang-for-moderately-sized-soap-pass-through-apis?forum=azureapimgmt&prof=required

    I've created a SOAP pass through API using a WSDL from Workday, which contains about 20 or so operations. The generated request samples produced by APIM upon import I suppose are somewhat large. However when I go to the developer portal and click on one of these APIs to test it the portal hangs, sometimes indefinitely. It appears as thought size of the API (number of operations and size of the XML request examples?) causes some strange performance issue. It really makes this product unusable for me at the moment, which is unfortunate.

  2. Set custom domain name for the new Developer Portal

    When running API Management in Internal vNet mode it is not possible to access the Developer Portal over <your-api-management-instance-name>.developer.azure-api.net since it's not publicly accessible. We need to be able to set a custom domain name on the new portal, can you please add the new portal to the list of endpoints available for custom domain names.

  3. Add AD Rules to Users and Groups Management

    When new users authenticate in the Developer portal they are automatically added to the system group - Developers. But for product visibility purposes, we have additional user defined groups: Internal and External (I'm sure there are other use cases, that's just ours). We move those users who authenticate by AD into the Internal group and those who don't into External. This is a manual process. If we could add an 'AD like' rule to the Developers group memberships on add that automatically (based on authentication method and(or) other criteria) add the new users to a custom group then we wouldn't…

  4. Get user subscription keys programmatically

    It would be nice if as a developer I would be able to get my subscriptions keys (primary key and secondary key) programmatically. By programmatically I mean, for example, authenticate to a REST endpoint with my username and password developer portal, and then with another REST endpoint get only my keys. (similar to the management rest API but, without the ability to view or modify other users' information nor perform administrator tasks)

  5. Support in "produces" section the Accept-Header from OpenAPI specification

    The produces/consumes is MIME type.
    1. The “consumes” specify the format that the API can accept. So “consumes” only affects operations with a request body, such as POST, PUT and PATCH.
    And is sent via “Content-Type” header
    2. The “produces” specify the format that the API can return.
    And I sent via “Accept” header

    Using the “Accept” header the user can select needed API response MIME type (e.g. "text/plain", "application/octet-stream", "*/*").

    When sending a request with SwaggerUI, We can selecte "application/octet-stream" Response Content Type.
    The request was sent by Swagger UI with the “Accept” header value filled "application/octet-stream".

    In the…

  6. RM or AZ powershell support for uploading a 3.0 open api specification to Azure api management

    I would like to see the option to add a 3.0 open api specification via a powershell cmd. The cmds, as of now, do not support 3.0 format.

  7. Authorize latest DNS domains to create accounts on the developer portal

    Customer with "original" email addresses ( for example .garden, .paris, .fish... ) cannot create an account on the developer portal using the "Username and password" identity provider.

    They have an "Invalid email" error even though the email address exists.

    Would it be possible to authorize all the existing domains listed here for example : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains

    Thanks

  10. Support OpenID Connect Hybrid Flow

    Currently only Implicit and Authorization Code flows are supported by the OpenID Connect provider in Azure APIM. The Implicit flow is being deprecated as vulnerable and a lot of applications are using Hybrid Flow (code id_token).

    Can you please add support for this flow?

  11. New API Management developer portal

    We are working on a new, open-source developer portal offering in Azure API Management, based on our own fork of the Paperbits framework (paperbits.io). It has a modern default look and feel, and is optimized for:

    - Customization, styling, and authoring through a built-in visual editor

    - Programmatic access through APIs for automating development, management, and deployment

    - Extension of the provided core functionality

  12. Group, filter, and sort Products

    I propose to support Product grouping, filtering and sorting like APIs. One way that this can be implemented is by populating the tags of the products and make them available in the portal models (Views).
    Currently the available tags property is empty regardless of the attached to the products tags.
    The assignment of tags to products should also be supported in the relative Product edit interface of the azure portal.

  13. Authentication failure signing in the Developer Portal using Azure AD

    After correctly configuring Azure AD integration (as specified here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/api-management-howto-aad) we experienced authentication failures when Azure Active Directory sign-in was selected.

    The problem happened to be with custom domain hostname for the Portal. Unless all lowercase letters are used in custom domain hostname, Azure AD sign-in doesn't work and shows message: "Authentication Failed".

    The simple solution would be to force all lower case when configuring custom domains either by converting user entered host names to lowercase or preventing users from entering caps.

  14. Support application/x-www-form-urlencoded parameters representation

    x-www-form-urlencoded parameters are currently not displayed at the developer portal. therefore the developer wont know what is expected of him to send.

    Current workaround is adding it to "sample" in the apim.
    But this is not scaling as it is a manual fix that needs to happen each time a developer uploads an openapi spec containing body parameters of this type.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
