How can we improve Azure API Management?

Confirm User Actions before making Routing Unavailable

An admin user accidentally clicked on a button in our primary prod API Mangement Service

API Mangement Service -> Virtual Network -> Apply network configuration

The user mistakenly pressed/released the mouse button while hovering over the WebUI/Component. The 'API Mangement Service' then stopped routing all traffic for just over 3 minutes of time (Effectively preventing traffic from being routed to/from clients). I confirmed this issue in a non-prod environment later.

Is it possible to have dialog introduced that will confirm user action when this button is pressed? I think it is an accident prone UI feature. To allow this one button to deny traffic to the entire APIM without first notifying the user the action will create a service outage situation, does not promote good user/client impact awareness. If you can't protect against an accidental click here, is it possible to provide some resiliency/reduncancy for when this action does occur? Accidental clicks on our production systems appear to be something that causes our clients to experience unexpected service interruptions.

Assuming the above is impossible. Is there some kind of UI setting we could use to prevent this given a specifc Azure Subscription?
