On May 11, 2018, we started a regular service update. We upgrade service instances in batches, and it takes about a week for the update to reach every active service instance. Notable new features this month include response headers are now present in docs on Developer Portal, API revision numbers are now included in Azure Monitor logs and a slew of new capabilities in the Azure Portal. Additionally, a variety of bugs were addressed including fixing performance issues with Git save.
Now it is possible to disable MSI using management API by either omitting the identity property or setting its value to null.
Management API now includes endpoints for managing issues.
We added the following capabilities that were missing in the Azure portal UI:
Configure caching policy using a form-based editor.
Add/edit user note.
Specify a description for the request body.
Send email when a user is subscribed to a product.
We introduced some changes in how OpenAPI import and export works in API Management. We made these changes based on customer feedback and to better align with OpenAPI semantics. The new behavior is in effect in the March 28 release when using Azure portal (including integrated Swagger editor) or management API version 2018-01-01 (or later).
On June 1, the management endpoint will no longer support port 443. Therefore, to ensure configuration management experience for your service continues to work properly after June 1, please make sure port 3443 is open for the inbound direction.
After April 1st, 2018, the Azure API Management Publisher portal will largely be no longer be accessible. Please use the Azure portal to perform all administrative tasks after this date.
The developer portal will remain available. All content management capabilities of the developer portal, in addition to Analytics and Applications, will also remain available to customers.
