Azure API Management release notes – April 18, 2018

On April 18, 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.

New functionality

  • 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.

Changes and fixes

  • We changed default TLS settings for newly created service instances, per this announcement.
  • JWT validation policy now works properly for claims with values set to null.
  • Based on customer feedback we made a couple of changes to the OpenAPI import. See this blog post for information about the import process.
    • We now preserve the case of operationId properties.
    • Instead of failing the import we now treat operationId and summary with empty values as if they were not specified.
  • APIs and operations in the rate limit and quota policies can now be referenced by their ids. In the past, the name was the only way to reference APIs and operations. If both name and id are provided we will use the id and ignore the name.
