API Management: Advanced caching and throttling policies
Updated: December 17, 2015
A number of new policies are available now to extend the caching and throttling capabilities of API Management.
- The cache-lookup-value and cache-store-value enable caching arbitrary pieces of data at arbitrary points during policy execution.
- The quota-by-key and rate-limit-by-key policies allow partitioning quota and rate limits by using custom key values. This gives developers a finer degree of control over throttling to prevent denial-of-service attacks and to enable usage based tiers for end users.
