API Management flexible subscriptions is in preview
Published date: 04 December, 2018
API Management Consumption Tier users can now create subscriptions at different levels and subscriptions are no longer required to be associated with a developer account.
Unlike the current API Management approach that requires subscriptions to be associated with a developer account, the flexible subscription feature allows subscriptions without requiring association with a developer. This simplifies subscription management and avoids interruptions in scenarios such as when a developer moves to a different team or company or when a subscription is shared by multiple developers or teams. Additionally, this feature allows users to better control access by specifying subscription scope to either All APIs or a subset of APIs.
This preview feature is initially available in API Management consumption tier and will be expanded to other API Management tiers by the end of January 2019.
