Publish, manage, secure and analyse your APIs in minutes
Monetise your data and services, and open new channels to customers using Azure API Management.
Create an API gateway and developer portal in minutes
Use Azure API Management as a turnkey solution for publishing APIs to external and internal customers. Quickly create consistent and modern API gateways for existing back-end services hosted anywhere, secure and protect them from abuse and overuse, and get insights into usage and health. Plus, automate and scale developer onboarding to help get your API program up and running.
Work with any host and API, and scale
Use an API management platform that works the way you do. Securely connect to back-end services built and running on any technology stack – it doesn’t matter if you select Azure or another service to host your APIs. API Management is available worldwide and ready to scale up and down on demand, without service interruption, and to handle any traffic growth or spike.
Attract more developers
Use a self-service developer portal that gives you access to an auto-generated API catalogue, documentation and code samples. Developers can sign in using existing customer or work identities, manage access keys, see their API usage reports and make API calls without writing a line of code via an interactive console.
Secure and optimise your APIs
Secure your APIs using a key, token and IP filtering. Enforce flexible and fine-grained quotas and rate limits, modify the shape and behaviour of your APIs using policies, and improve latency and scale your APIs with response caching.
