Move to Azure Resource Manager REST APIs for Azure SQL Database

Published date: November 30, 2018

Azure Resource Manager is our cloud infrastructure stack that fully replaces the classic Azure Service Manager deployment model.  As a result, support for Service Manager REST APIs for Azure SQL Database will be retired on December 1, 2019. As with all changes of this type, we’re providing 12 months’ notice so you have adequate time to update your services that use Service Manager APIs for SQL Database to Resource Manager APIs. 


To continue using Azure SQL Database, please move to Resource Manager by November 30, 2019. We encourage all customers who are still using Service Management APIs to make the switch soon to take advantage of the additional benefits of Resource Manager, which include resource grouping and tags, a streamlined deployment and management process, and fine-grained access control using role-based access control. For more information on the differences between Azure Resource Manager and Service Management, please see the TechNet Blog.
