API Management flexible subscriptions is in preview
Posted on 04 December 2018
API Management Consumption Tier users can now create subscriptions at different levels, and subscriptions are no longer required to be associated with a developer account.
Unlike the current API Management approach that requires subscriptions to be associated with a developer account, the flexible subscription feature allows subscriptions without requiring association with a developer. This simplifies subscription management and avoids interruptions in scenarios such as when a developer moves to a different team or company, or when a subscription is shared by multiple developers or teams. Additionally, this feature allows users to better control access by specifying subscription scope to either All APIs or a subset of APIs.
This preview feature is initially available in API Management consumption tier and will be expanded to other API Management tiers by the end of January 2019.
