Azure API Management update April 19
Published date: 19 April, 2019
On April 19, we started a regular Azure API Management service update. The update includes the following bug fixes, changes, and new features:
- API Management is now available in South Africa North and South Africa West regions.
- API Management now refreshes certificates from Azure Key Vault every 4 hours, instead of every 24 hours.
- We added a new
authenticate-managed-identitypolicy that supports authenticating with an API back end by using the managed identity of the API Management service.
- We fixed an issue in Open API Specification v3 import that caused Null Reference Exceptions.
We deploy updates gradually. It usually takes a week or more for every active service instance to receive the updates.
