A regular Azure API Management service update started on 25 October 2019, and included the following new features, bug fixes, changes and improvements. We deploy updates gradually and it takes over a week for every active API Management service instance to receive them.
- It’s now possible to create custom content types in the new developer portal. Custom content types’ names need to start with the
c- prefix. Documentation in the portal’s GitHub repository will soon be updated.
- When a Consumption tier service with a custom domain is suspended and then reactivated, it now preserves the certificate and the domain settings. This fix only applies to services created from now on.
- Requests aborted due to client disconnect are no longer reported as back-end disconnect failures.
- Requests that failed due to an invalid back-end HTTP response code are no longer reported as internal gateway error failures.
- It’s now possible to use the network status API call to monitor connectivity among the local cache and API Management units in a region.
redirect-content-urls policy now respects API version identifier in the URL path.
- Enabling VNET connectivity to additional storage accounts is no longer required for the managed version of the new developer portal. Documentation will be updated soon.
The new developer portal (in preview) follows an independent release life cycle and the per-release change log is available on GitHub.
