Azure API Management update—July 2020

Published date: July 15, 2020


A regular Azure API Management service update was started on July 8, 2020. It includes the following new features, bug fixes, and changes, along with other improvements.


  • API Management can now access storage accounts as a trusted Microsoft service. An example of policy using this feature is located on GitHub.

  • Consumption tier services can now be created in five additional regions: West Central US, South Central US, France Central, Germany West Central, and Switzerland North.
  • Consumption tier services now emit metrics to Azure Monitor, with the exception of Event Hub and Capacity metrics. The Capacity metric won't be available in the Consumption tier.
  • Consumption tier services can now be moved to a different Azure subscription or resource group.
  • Response of the Network Status API call now includes connectivity information for the monitoring endpoint.
  • The PUT Subscription API call now accepts the appType query parameter in API versions 2018-06-01-preview or later. The value of the query parameter controls destination of the link included in the subscription confirmation email sent to a user - portal (default) results in a link pointing to the legacy developer portal, while developerPortal results in a link pointing to the new developer portal.
  • If API Management is configured to use a KeyVault-based SSL/TLS certificate, Activity Logs now include logs for the start of certificate auto-refresh process.


  • List of header names specified for logging can't contain duplicate header names.


  • If sign-in delegation is configured, user is redirected to the URL specified in the returnUrl query parameter after a successful sign-in in the developer portal (managed version).

    It may take over a week for your API Management service to receive the update. The developer portal follows an independent release lifecycle and the per-release change log is available on GitHub.
