Easily build and consume Cloud APIs.
Get security support for Azure Active Directory, single sign-on, and OAuth
Consume APIs on any website with CORS support
Use Swagger to generate cross-platform client SDKs in Visual Studio
Bring in existing APIs written with .NET, PHP, Node.js, Java, or Python

Continuous integration and deployment slots
Connect your favorite version control system to your API, and automatically deploy commits, which makes code changes easier than ever. Move your API to production, run tests against a copy of your app provided by deployment slots, and then redirect traffic to the new version without downtime.
Your API is just a few clicks away from being highly-secured through Azure Active Directory, social network single sign-on, or OAuth. No code changes are required, and we keep the sign-on SDKs for your services up to date.
Connect your API to your corporate or local network using on-premises connections with enterprise-grade security. Serve APIs to your intranet as if they were running locally, or connect them to existing internal network resources.

"We use Azure to host our entire infrastructure; from websites and SQL databases to different cloud services. Deploying our APIs, for example, is something that would have been more complex if we had to do it on our own or used another hosting company without these out-of-the-box services."

"The logic and decision-making behind the PowerApps solution goes much deeper than a simple "hours vs. price" calculation to gain insight. Instead, Economic Callouts rationalizes via API apps (part of Azure App Service) through 11 different internal and external data sources ... Additionally, TransAlta was able to keep their PowerApps solution secure by leveraging Azure Active Directory."
