How can we improve Azure API Management?

Ability to manage Subscription Keys for a Group of users

Allow the assignment of a subscription key that applies to a group of users. The idea is to create one shared subscription key that is tied to the group so as members of the group swap in/out they can use that key.

Think of a large company of developers, rather than creating a shared login the group of developers could be put into the group and then have access to that applications subscription keys.

The idea is really to treat the key as an entity that isn't a person but needs to be managed by several people, like give this company or team a key to use when they deploy to prod. If someone leaves the team the subscription key isn't at risk of being deleted/replaced.

    We have clients who require this. Our requirement is that we should be able to allocate a Product Subscription key to a group of users. At the moment you can only choose 1 user when creating a subscription.

    This would be a really useful feature - We have at any given point a number of teams working on different applications - being able to assign a team key, or application key that works regardless of who is logged in as long as they are member of the dev team for the specific application
