Learning Azure API Management – Blog

Azure API Management allows businesses to securely, reliably and at scale publish APIs on Azure, on-premises and in other clouds. API Management can be used to increase API usage within internal teams, partners, developers, and take advantage of the admin portal’s business and log analytics. This service allows you to create user roles, set consumption plans and quotas, and apply policies to alter payloads. It also monitors and alerts you.
Azure API Management is a fully managed service that allows customers to publish, secure, transform and maintain APIs. You can create an API facade in the Azure portal that allows external and internal applications to access data or business logic created by your custom-built backend service. This can be done on Azure Kubernetes Service or App Service.
API Management is responsible for request authentication and authorization as well as rate restriction and quota enforcement. It also handles request and response transformations, logging and trace, and API version management.
Azure API Management Components
It is divided into three parts: Azure Portal and Developer Portal.
Azure Portal
We are already familiarized with the Azure portal. We’ve used it throughout this course to create a variety Azure resources such as virtual machines and app service instances. It can also be used to manage APIs. For example, we can use the Azure portal.
Make an API schema, or import one.
Establish policies for APIs such as transformations and quotas.
Analytics can provide valuable information.
Organize your users
Developer Portal
The Developer site is for developers who want to use your APIs in their apps. They can use it if desired.
Register to receive API keys.
Check out the API documentation.
They can also look at their usage statistics.
API Gateway
We are already familiar with the Azure gateway. It has been used to create a variety of Azure resources, including virtual machines and app service instances. It is also used to create and manage numerous APIs. We can use the Azure portal for example.
Create or import an API Schema
APIs can be combined to create products.
Implement API policies such as quotas or transformations.
Analytics can provide you with a lot of useful information.
Sort your users.
A summary of what APIM offers
API documentation: This tool generates API documentation ideas automatically, allowing developers and designers to integrate their solutions faster. Modern frameworks and standards such as OpenAPI allow you to quickly expose your API structure. This tool also allows you to run multiple versions of your API simultaneously, which is useful for testing, trailing and backward compatibility.
Access control: It is important to limit access to data, especially if there is a large volume of data being sent to the API. Rate limiting is a way to ensure that every client receives the fastest possible response time. This can be done for all APIs or just for a few customers.
Health monitoring: APIs can be accessed remotely by clients. This makes it difficult to spot potential problems such as slow or offline backends. APIM, however, can track both faults as well as other types of responses and provide logs.
APIM supports a wide range of formats: APIM supports common online formats like XML, CSV and JSON. This format is widely used in web technologies that allow for information transmission. It can also be used to convert between formats.
