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.

  1. API Management more control with mail sending

    Currently there are very few options to set, when it comes to mailing about API Management events (new subscriptions, new developers, etc.).
    It would be great, if following could be included for e-mail configuration (some of these things help avoid e-mail being recognized as spam by some spam filters, as in our case):
    - optionally removing "on behalf of" when sending e-mail
    - including text/plain representation in sent e-mails (besides default text/html)
    - using SendGrid as a e-mail sender (as in other Azure services)
    - using custom reply address (instead of "on behalf of")

    Any maybe some other things that…

  2. More detailed metrics for Azure API Management service.

    Currently the 'Capacity' metric for the Azure API Management service only supports an aggregation type of of 'Average'.

    WIth the ability to calculate the capacity to a percentage, it would be very beneficial to have an alternate metric or second aggregation type for 'Maximum' for the capacity metric to show at a glance what remaining availability is.

  3. Enable the use of SSH protocol for authentication to APIM Git repos

    Current: Interacting with our APIM git repos requires the use of username/password credentials, with the password being generated on the "Access credentials" section of APIM on Portal. This password is valid for 30 days, max: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/api-management-configuration-repository-git#to-clone-the-repository-to-your-local-machine

    Desired: Allow users to upload public ssh keys to the APIM tenant, so that users, remote servers, and services can connect to the repo using the SSH protocol. Github currently allows this: https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-ssh

    This is especially important for our CLI configuration. We have our APIM git repo loaded as a submodule for our project, as we have integration tests that compare our backend controllers…

  4. Hide request parameters in analytics

    I'd rather not store any data coming into my API management, it's just a pass through recording which users are calling the API. I suppose maybe I could move the parameters to the body, but it would be nice if there was an option not to store parameter values. Azure is secure and all, but it would be nice to say, we can't store or look up any data.

  5. Add a "Subscription Required" checkbox during APIM API creation.

    Currently when creating an APIM service in Azure and adding a new API, there is no option to remove the "Subscription Required" parameter until after the API's creation. After creation this can be managed under the API's settings, however it would be very beneficial to be able to access this during creation.

  6. Ability to read certificate stored under secrets in APIM

    Ability to read certificates stored under secrets in APIM is required. If Certificate is created using App Service Certificate, certificate is getting stored under secrets. APIM in ability to read certificate under secrets of Key vault is becoming bottleneck for us.

  7. Extend billing API to consider fair use of reservations

    My company uses a mix of reserved instances and pay-as-you go instances. I want a convenient way to evaluate how much it cost in a given month to operate a virtual machine. This convenient way should fairly distribute reserved instance usage among eligible machines.

    Details:

    With pay-as-you-go instances, you can pull monthly data that shows how much an instance cost to operate this month. The costs are a direct function of the delivered value. With reserved instances, you pay in advance and you may (or may not) use the reservation over the course of the years. Value stream (usage) and…

  8. A powershell script to enable application insights logs per API

    When an API is imported, it is possible to do so via powershell and apply several settings to that API. However, I would like to see that the settings regarding logging to application insights could also be managed via a powershell cmd.

  9. Provide a callback or REST API to check if changes made through management operations have been picked by Proxy

    Posting on behalf of customer:

    Per current API Management design/implementation, management operations are async and Proxy could take few sec to a minute to pickup the changes made through management APIs.
    The delay is indeterministic as there're multiple factors which could impact the time for Proxy to pickup the changes like Number of proxies involved, load on the proxy when control plane operations were made.

    As there's no deterministic way currently to confirm when Proxy has picked up the changes, we're not able to confirm if API is ready to take handle workload relying on changes.

    So, we request to…

  10. REST APIs through APIM backed by internal oData services

    We would like to provide REST APIs through APIM backed by internal oData services. The REST APIs will provide a subset of what the oData services provide. We would like to do this with no or minimal coding and we don't believe that this is possible today. We are requesting subsetting an oData service and lightweight transformations.

  12. apim should allow more than 260 characters for URL path segments

    API definitions which have an ID as one path segment can have path segments which are larger than 260 characters (which is a windows limitation). Unfortunately this limitation is also part of the apim service and can be inceased by the product team on request. Why not setting it to a larger value as default or let me set an option like (windows compatible path length) when creating the instance?

    This problem is very critical if you face it because the apim service itself will block the request and you cannot handle/modify/forward the request to something else which can handle…

  13. Add support for configuring SSL settings of APIM instance using Git repo or Powershell

    We're trying to automate our deployment of APIM using the APIM git repositories. However, APIM currently doesn't support configuration for SSL settings of an APIM instance either using a git repository or Azure PowerShell cmdlets. We would like to have that support so that we can manage APIM completely through the git repository and powershell instead of having to change things in the Portal.

  14. Support expandGroups=true on the single-product GET endpoint

    The GET /products operation (in both original and ARM management REST API) supports an optional query parameter named expandGroups=true that will return groups along with each product returned.

    It would be useful to have this same query parameter available for the GET /products/{pid} endpoint when getting a specific product.

    When delegation is enabled (for product subscriptions), the delegation endpoint may need to fetch details about the product, including the groups with visibility. Currently, to get the groups for the product within the delegation endpoint, we have to make 2 service calls to the Mangement REST API. Supporting expandGroups = true…

  15. Use wildcard url in backend entity

    Could you support wildcard in the url of backend entity?

    Take following backend for example, we would like to use https://*.contoso.com/ instead of https://abc.contoso.com/.

    {
    "id": "/subscriptions/subid/resourceGroups/rg1/providers/Microsoft.ApiManagement/service/apimService1/backends/proxybackend",
    "type": "Microsoft.ApiManagement/service/backends",
    "name": "proxybackend",
    "properties": {

    "description": "description5308",
    
    &quot;url&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://abc.contoso.com/&quot;">https://abc.contoso.com/&quot;</a>,
    &quot;protocol&quot;: &quot;http&quot;,
    &quot;credentials&quot;: {},
    &quot;header&quot;: {},
    &quot;authorization&quot;: {
    &quot;scheme&quot;: &quot;Basic&quot;,
    &quot;parameter&quot;: &quot;opensesma&quot;
    }
    },
    &quot;proxy&quot;: {},
    &quot;tls&quot;: {
    &quot;validateCertificateChain&quot;: false,
    &quot;validateCertificateName&quot;: false
    }

    }
    }

  16. List incremental of entities

    Hi, team
    For now, we pull our apim instances entities every day from API management service. But we can only get 1 day snap shot.
    Is it possible to get incremental values of these entities(user/operation/api/product/subscription ect.) from API management services? For example, we can get data filtered by update time?

  17. Expose IntegrationModuleBitsVersion and IntegrationModuleVersion via ARM API

    I have noticed over time that when MS rolls out out an update to a tenant that properties in configuration.json may change: specifically IntegrationModuleBitsVersion and maybe IntegrationModuleVersion

    This is not exposed through the ARM API capabilities. Make the properties readable from ARM or even the legacy API or some other way that may be automated. I would like to check the values periodically and get a heads up to do wider regression testing when I detect a change there.

  18. Enable tracing in the Manager

    The trace capability is really useful but has to be enabled currently in the client by setting an additional HTTP header.

    If I have a production issue I can't amend code to do this and I may have many clients so would like to be able to turn this on in API Management with a simple checkbox or policy change at an API operation level

  19. Allow CORS headers for Management API

    In order to invoke Management REST API endpoint (like ***.management.azure-api.net/apis?api-version=vvv) from browser's JS code, CORS headers should be enabled there. Moreover, full Management REST API endpoint configuration (thru Azure portal) is very welcomed addition.

  20. Schema validation in APIM

    When an actual request comes, we need to validate the schema of the request and while sending back the respose, the schema should be validated. Similar to validate feature of API connect (IBM).
