How can we improve Azure API Management?

Support API definition updates as part of Visual Studio builds

For applications developed in Visual Studio and leveraging Swashbuckle, can we get the ability to update the API definitions in APIm on each build and deploy (CI) rather than having to hand-update APIm each time.

        I believe the scenario that he is mentioning is where we have some backend APIs defined in API management and whenever those APIs change, the APIM API definitions should automatically update themselves. I can quickly see how these can start resulting in versioning problems with customers, however, it can still be a good feature to have them automatically update the API and still have the previous version active. Once the API managers / admins review the API updates and determine the version the customers will be moved, then those API changes can be "published". This might require the versioning and multiple environments (prod,test,staging) tasks to be done before this one can be approached.
