Affected Product: Azure Preview API Apps (v1)
Deprecation Date: January 18th, 2017
Removal Date: March 14th, 2017
Mitigation: Redeploy workload to App Service API Apps (v2)
Today we are announcing the deprecation of Preview API Apps, referred to as v1 API Apps for this article. v1 API Apps are deprecated immediately and will be removed from Azure on March 14th. App Service API Apps, referred to as v2 API Apps for this article, are a GA product and still under active development. Redeploy all v1 API App workloads to v2 API Apps by March 14th to avoid a service interruption.
We are excited at the growth we have seen since upgrading v1 API Apps to the App Service infrastructure and announcing general availability of v2 API Apps over a year and a half ago. Read the original announcement for all the improvements introduced in v2 API Apps.
Logic App Impact
Logic Apps had moved away from using the preview API Apps v1 based connectors almost 1 year ago and has since become generally available with over 100 managed connectors.
Please migrate your preview Logic Apps to our GA schema and discontinue use of the preview API APP v1 based connectors, as those connectors will be removed on March 14th, 2017.
API Gateway resources are also deprecated and will also be removed following the API App removal timeline. API Gateway resources are created in each resource group that contains a v1 API App and have the resource type “Gateway” in the portal.
Upgrading Preview API Apps (v1)
Follow this guide to redeploy your v1 API App workload to a v2 API App.
Upgrading Logic Apps v1 Connectors
Use the GA release of Logic Apps with equivalent managed connectors in place of the v1 preview Connectors.
To check that you are no longer consuming a v1 connector, stop all of your v1 API Apps from the portal and check that your logic apps run successfully.
All v1 connectors will be classified as preview API Apps in the portal, shown above.
