Azure API Management update October 24
Published date: 25 October, 2018
The latest update to Azure API Management includes the following bug fixes, changes and new features:
End-to-end tracing with Azure Application Insights. We added support for HTTP Correlation Protocol to our integration with Application Insights to make it possible to trace a request all the way from client to back end.
More powerful expressions. System.Net.WebUtility type containing useful methods for HTML and URL encoding and decoding is now added to the list of .NET Framework types available from policy expressions.
Faster configuration deployments. We optimised the deployment from Git implementation. It runs 3 to 5 times faster now.
More flexible JWT validation. You can now use expressions for the separator attribute of a claim element of the validate-jwt policy.
More reliable console tracing. We fixed a bug that prevented us from generating traces for requests hitting policy scopes that contain the set-variable policy used to store IResponse objects.
We started the update on 24th October 2018. Service instances are being upgraded in batches and it usually takes a week or more for every active service instance to be updated.
