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. Provide named values to the templates

    Would it be very useful if "named values" (global parameters you can use inside policies) could be used inside dotliquid templates ie.

    {{ myCustomNamedValue }}. This is important to link to external resources (in development / production envs), or to display values to the users (ie. quota limits) you use in policies as well.

  2. Developers to assign individual keys to their applications

    Right now keys are issued to developers as per product subscriptions. There is no way to identify which applications are using a particular API. It can only show developer usage statistics. Some developers might lose track of their own applications especially if they are internal developers so a mechanism to identify the application using an API based on a key would be great.

  3. 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.

  4. Support Markdown in Issues and Issue Comments

    Sometimes to better convey meaning around an issue or response to an issue formatting is needed. For instance I want to format code snippets as code and create numbered lists to communicate steps that must be followed to resolve an issue. Markdown or at the very least HTML would be a welcome feature.

  5. Search for Operation in API not available in Azure API Management developer portal

    Search for Operation in API not available in Azure API Management developer portal

    Search for Operation in API not available in Azure API Management developer portal

    Where as with Administrator portal same search feature available for operation search

    The problem is when we provide link to customers, they are not able to search based on some specific word. They need to scroll till they find the specific operation.

    This is not user friendly.

  6. Host and manage API documentation that is easy to edit, publish and manage

    As today, we do not have a simple way to publish documents (PDFs, Excel, etc..) in the developer portal.

    We would like to have a way to publish public documents, documents shared across products, product-related documents and api-related documents.
    Some of this content is managed by the API analyst, other is managed by the API PM and they want to manage the content indipendently from the release pipeline of an API.

    It would be nice to have a blob container per scenario (public, private, per product, per api) and the developer portal takes care to render the content of the…

  7. Rename subscription key header details (description, value)

    I’ve already modified the header name to ‘api-key’. Now trying to figure out if I can customize APIM template data values for header description and value.

    The challenge is that the existing values still refer to the subscription key as 'subscription key' so the documentation and code samples based on the template data (see attached) become confusing once the subscription key is renamed.

  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. 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.

  13. Search API across entire site

    It would be very useful to have the search button functionality on entire site. For example, when searching an API by a word to display all related results from all available pages.

  14. Embed Azure DeveloperPortal in a corporate domain site

    The developer portal enables us to import APIs and run them. I would like to be able to embed it into an existing corporate site that is already describing our company, our products, even some APIs documentation in order to have the possibility to run the APIs from there. In this way, we will decrease the number of websites a customer must use in order to access all of our features. It can be annoying to have a website for the company and then another website just for running APIs and then maybe another website for something else, etc.

    We are planning to address this issue as part of our developer portal work.


    Thanks for the feedback. Even though it’s possible to embed API Management developer portal experience into another portal in the true sense, it’s possible to integrate it with another portal for a more seamless experience using delegation – see docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-manageme…

  15. Required field Validation on API page in Azure developer portal

    Required filed validation should be there on API page in Azure developer portal.

    Issue which I am facing is described below:

    I have published an APIs in the APIM service using a Swagger file, where the required key is set to True for all the request parameters.
    When I test the APIs within APIM, the required field validation works as expected for all the parameters and also shows the validation message.
    However, when I test the same APIs from the APIM Developer Portal, the field validation doesn’t work as expected and the API is called without displaying the validation message…

  16. Customisable template data [not the HTML template]

    Existing customisation experience does not allow us to edit the default set of string values etc and hence the experience to be able to truly customise the portal is somewhat limited.

    Consider referring to screenshot where I want to replace the string "Azure Active Directory B2C" to read as "Developer Login".

  17. allow developer/management portal access from region close to developer.

    For a premium tier multi region setup, allow developer/management portal access from region close to developer. Or allow to make other unit as primary so that developers can still access portals in case they have issues accessing primary unit which hosts all portals

  18. Issues forum: support line feeds

    When posting an issue in the Developer Portal, I find that all the line feeds are not considered and the text becomes all in one line which makes it hard to read the issue.

    Please add support for multiple lines (like in the text box i'm typing in right now) and it would be nice to include some formatting features as well.

    Thanks

  20. announcements

    I don't see anything in the new Azure portal about the announcements (blog) component. I also don't see any mention of it on the Azure API Management roadmap site. What is the plan for this? And will it eventually be migrated to the new Azure portal?
