Azure API Management will retire five legacy metrics in Azure Monitor on 31 August 2023

Published date: 03 September, 2020

Azure API Management integrates natively with Azure Monitor and emits metrics every minute, giving customers visibility into the state and health of their APIs. To enable a more granular view of API traffic and better performance, we have introduced a new metric named Requests. The new metric replaces five legacy metrics that were retired in May 2019.

How does this affect me?

After 31 August 2023, the following metrics will no longer be available:

  • Total gateway requests
  • Successful gateway requests
  • Unauthorised gateway requests
  • Failed gateway requests
  • Other gateway requests

What actions should I take?

Start using the new Requests metric in Azure Monitor for API management, which is now generally available.
