    Subscriptions/Security: How can I secure it to registered authorised users, do I need to do this my self?

  • WHy

    What am I paying for? a proxy for my existing API with some caching? My existing API has to have 99% SLA already, or the proxy/API won’t work?

      Also Analytics!

    If i had 1 API Instance of API Mgmt Premium and used multi-geo to deploy to 2 regions. Would that mean I have 2 units from a billing perspective?

  • Mikael Sand

    How do I secure my back end service to communicate ONLY with the Azure API?

    How mutch information can be collected via razor syntax? Is it possible to collect data from lookups?

    Can we get custom Code examples? Used to create complete examples with for example Oauth authentication code example.

    For the AZ-AD security would be great to auto approve if user is in a certain group and they request access

  • michael stephenson

    if im a dev could i see a holistic view of my azure api usage across multiple subscriptions

  • Colin Mackay

    is there an easy way to expose an odata endpoint?

  • Kent Weare

    Azure Mobile Services supports custom APIs…what are some scenarios where you would also leverage Azure API mgmt?

  • Mikael Sand

    Can I connect using the Service Bus Relay?

    • michael stephenson

      yes and no – There are challenges around the token

  • WHy

    I feel like I m paying twice, once for hosting my service in azure, or where ever, and then for this, of which my service already does, security done, subscriptions done, documentation done, caching done, all in the back end service…. its pretty standard…. Once the developers find my backend service it’s much quicker to call that directly, avoid one hop? Then for me to avoid the cost.

    • michael stephenson

      there are a lot of companies who have requirements for this. EG APIGee have a whole business built almost solely for this use case

  • WHy

    Analytics done, lock down done, rate limits done already in back end.

    • michael stephenson

      rate limiting on a per user scenario is pretty hard to implement on your own

    • Mikael Sand

      Dude! You can always punch holes in business models.
      This thing might be something you’d use the next time?

  • Erik Mogensen

    Some organizations only want/are able to use FTP, FTPS and/or SFTP. Are you planning to add support for any of those?

    • michael stephenson

      Erik – There was mention at previous biztalk summits about a potential managed file transfer service on the azure roadmap

  • Colin Mackay

    how would you integrate into a billing system? or charge for your API?

  • Mike Andrews

    Does this integrate with azure search, documentdb, other azure Apis as well as “mine”?

  • WHy

    70k for something I have already one, once off, does not justify this. There is no ongoing cost for me

  • WHy

    caters for lazy developers
