  1. APIM Publisher Portal link is broken

    On the blade for APIM, the "Publisher Portal" link no longer brings up the Publisher Portal as of 20190911. It now brings up the non-GA Developer Portal. Please restore the previous functionality, or provide another means to access the trend information.

  2. Ping endpoint

    To facilitate the management of a given instance of APIM, I’d like to see a lightweight authorized “Ping” endpoint exposed in the APIM REST API (ex: HEAD /ping). This endpoint would allow a Publisher (me) to ensure that he’s able to communicate with the Management REST API (i.e., the URL and credentials being used are correct).

    I will be driving the provisioning/management/monitoring of my instance of APIM using the REST API from within my company’s Operations software (a mixture of System Center and other internal software). So I would encode into my monitoring software a periodic call to the Ping…

  3. Utilize Power BI for analytics

    It would be great to have the option to use Power BI for analysis of data that today is available through the webinterface/apis.

  6. Make reCaptcha on SignUp page configurable or optional.

    There should be a way to disable or at least tone down the ferocity of the reCaptcha. According to our analytics we lose up to 20% of prospective clients who give up after refreshing 2 or 3 times and still not being able to read the reCaptcha.

  8. Enterprise ACLs

    Enterprise ACLs

    • Will need to control access to specific nodes of the API Manager with inheritance
    

    Example: If I manage a division I can change the child team's APIs

  9. Making people API managers

    The method described here, which seems to be the only way, to make people API managers do not work:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/api-management-faq/#how-do-i-add-a-user-to-the-administrators-group

    The developers might have tested the applications with accounts that are already admin on the subscription, and found it working.
    What needs to happen is, ideally to be able manage users, both developers and admin, in the API portal - not in Azure Portal which it doesn it work, anyways.

  11. Add "Subscription count limit" feature for subscriptions without a user

    Right now, the "Subscription count limit" under Product -> Settings applies to the number of subscriptions without a user too. This should not be the case, the number of subscriptions you can create from the Azure Portal, without being assigned to a user, should not be limited to the "Subscription count limit". I understand that this limitation is by design and that currently, this limit applies to a user/product combination. However, subscriptions that have a "null" username should be exempt from this limit. I would suggest having a separate configurable limit here for non-user subscriptions or configuring this number to…

  12. Display details of YAML importing error

    Importing YAML file, the message "Internal Server Error" is displayed if there is an invalid error response definition as following.

      responses:
    
    '200':
    description: Successfully updated a user
    content:
    application/json:
    schema:
    $ref: '#/components/schemas/User'
    '400':
    $ref: '#/components/schemas/User' # <-- it has to be set Error Response compornent

    It's useful to display if the details of error, not only "Internal Server error", for troubleshooting.

    Regards,

  13. Sorting API by "API URL Suffix"

    Hi,
    It will be really interesting to a kind of a tree view that shows us all the api url suffix and the api in it
    e.g:

    /
    /clients/

     >API Name 
    
    >> List of operations

    /employees/

     >API Name 
    
    >> List of operations

    Regards

  14. Allow Specifying Scope for Properties

    It's great that there's properties that can then be referenced within policies without hard coding them in. It should provide added flexibility when the properties are maintained in one place. However, as it currently stands, all of the properties are global which makes them inherently hard-coded anyway.

    Being able to specify the scope of a property in the publisher portal should provide even more flexibility.


    Global Scoped Properties: As the properties currently are. I can as an admin go into the publisher portal and specify a global property value.

    User Scoped Properties: A user could set the value in their…

  15. Add review URL for Application in publisher portal

    When you try to review an application (before publishing) you need to see the URL of the application. Unfortunately this is not possible, the URL is not visible in the application review page in the Publisher Portal.

  16. Search by API Key within API Management blade from Subscriptions Tab

    It is currently possible to view all subscriptions and filter by Display Name and Owner.
    It is also possible to view individual keys from show/hide keys

    it would be helpful to be able to paste in a subscription key, and have the list filtered to show the subscription the key belongs to.

  17. Notify portal admins of new features

    Sometimes portal customizations (e.g. custom templates) can override new features (e.g. API definition download links). To remedy this portal it was suggested that portal admins be notified within the portal. Better yet, each time there is a new release, show an error-style line informing the user that there was a new release. Allow this line to be closed manually.

  18. Importing WSDL with multiple ports/interfaces

    I have WSDL which contains multiple ports/interfaces. However, in custom connector management wizard reads action only from the first interface. I have a workaround to edit WSDL manually by removing all other interfaces except the one.

    The wizard should recognize all interfaces in WSDL and all Actions by Interface hierarchy.

  19. Split Azure API Manager into two main products

    Split Azure API Manager into two main products

    The Publish and Subscribe should be Enterprise wide while the SOA aspect can be deployed independently by department or application.

    . Enterprise capable Publish and Subscribe

  20. BUG: Uri for appID is required to be a Url in the management console (instead of any Uri)

    An API has an appID. According to the label over the field this is an URI but the user interface does not allow us to put anything else but an url. We use a custom uri scheme to identify all of our applications and it would be really nice if we can continue to use this. The custom scheme we use is intended to end the confusion on our integrators of when to use a url and when to use an ID.
