  3. [New Developer Portal] : Feedback widget

    We want our partner (external users) to be able send feedback to us . At minimum we want to capture if it is positive/negative , description. It would be amazing if we can get information on the issues they are facing by having something similar to this https://www.npmjs.com/package/ng-feedback

  4. Manage Backends with Azure Portal

    There doesn't seem to be a way to manage Backends with the Azure Portal. You must import a Function App to get the function app as a backend (or ARM Template and create the backend), but there's no way to manually hook up a Backend. There's also no way to clean out old backends.

    Could we add a new item under API Management below APIs called Backends?

  5. Support AAD JWT token validation more directly using AAD metadata

    There is currently a way to validate JWT tokens in the policies. This is great. However, it could be done better in the case the JWT tokens are issued by AAD. In that case one would like to give the tenant ID of AAD and the Application ID that is assigned to the API. This way the policy would automatically extract the valid certificate from AAD metadata (something like https://login.microsoftonline.com/38cda3b4-71fa-4748-a48e-e50ef1ebfe00/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml).

    That would prevent us from having to do this manually each time the global AAD certificate changes (next one is before mar 2019). It would be more in the…

  6. Ability to turn off Try it Now feature in Developer Portal or hide the button

    We have a Sandbox environment that we want to link to the Try it Now feature in Developer Portal. Since our API creates, tenders, and tracks shipments, we do not want users to have the ability to actually do these things in production just to "try it out." We want to turn off the ability for users to "Try it Now" or else customize that button to hit our Sandbox environment. Coding out a bunch of mock responses is not feasible due to the number of errors/responses that could be returned based on what a user enters.

  7. Allow API Management to respond during backend upgrades

    Create a new management API endpoint that allows an API to be marked with the states as "being upgraded" and "in production". When an API is marked as "being upgraded" it should return a 503 status with a retry-after header instead of passing the request through.

    This would allow client applications that know how to do retries be uninterrupted by backend upgrades.

  9. Allow OAuth2.0/OpenID Connect Authentication when testing APIs through the Azure Portal.

    Whenever an API requires OAuth2.0 or OpenID Connection authentication, through the Developer Portal you can authenticate at the defined STS. Yet, in the Azure Management Portal, when testing your API, this 'button' or feature is missing. To me, this renders the Test option useless, because all our APIs require OAuth...

  10. Ability for Product Group Admins to have access to see the Publisher "Analytics" for their APIs/Products

    We require the ability for specific admin users (Product Group Owners) from different groups to get access to see only their APIs/Products analytics via the Azure Portal/Publisher Portal Analytics section.

    Currently the APIM Admin has visibility to all the APIs/Products Analytics (Publisher Portal) and is required to provide reports back to the specific Product owner.

  11. Create apim vendor extension for swagger to import rewriteURL.

    If APIM could import a swagger with an x-msapim-rewriteurl extension key on the operation, I could then provide something like and OData endpoint for GET /MyResource({Id}) as GET /MyResource/{Id}

  12. Enable Log Analytics search REST API for government use

    The log analytics search REST API is available for marketplace use but not government sites. We followed the documentation here thinking our logs could be searched using api.loganalytics.io: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-log-search-api. Expanding the API log search capability to government sites with an api.loganalytics.us option would be a useful feature for our company and potentially others. At the very least, the documentation should mention that government sites are not supported.

    Closed Service Request # that this feature request is based on: 117101016472241

  14. Support for Node.js like APIGEE

    I hope you would have seen other API tools like APIGEE. Just in case I have a local node. js application, I should be quickly upload into API management portal and act as a back end. This will help me to quickly complement any missing capabilities like support for MangoDB or ReDis or mem cache for caching instead of using default cache mechanism provided by default. Another use case that I can think of, is that I have some on prem data like stores and there location. Then I would like to have some of these data exported to user…

    Hi Venkatesh,

    Can you please elaborate more on what you would like to see in Azure API Management? If I understand correctly you’d like to be able to import your APIs written in Node.js into API Management with a easy solution?

  15. REST API SDK (Java et al)

    I might be missing it but I don't see a client SDK for the API Management REST API. Personally I want a Java version, but I'm sure others would want something different.

    I'm doing things like delegating signup and need to do integrations like calling the create user API. Would be nice to have some of this pre-built.

  16. Add "API" to Import and Export on APIM Gateway context menu

    I did not realize that Import/Export is for APIs. This is not intuitive. And when you click on that option, the title says “Import API” and ”Export API”. Can I make a strong recommendation to add “API” to the end of “Import” and “Export” on that context menu?

  19. 5 Rules For API Management

    These five rules are by no means the final say on API management, but they do provide context for the overall market:
    1. Design. Make the APIs accessible to different classes of developers and partners. ...
    2. Documentation. To make APIs accessible, offer documentation and communication tools to make it easy to create and manage the applications built on the API itself. ...
    3. Analytics. ...
    4. Universal Access. ...
    5. Uptime.

    What do you think? What are some other principles to follow when managing APIs?

  20. Same logic apps name but in different resource group problem

    When setting up backend resource to logic apps, when we have two logic apps with same name but in different resource group and if we choose the second logic app, it links to first one. This is very annoying because the logic app is always getting selected from top in the list.
