General availability: GraphQL passthrough support in Azure API Management
Published date: May 24, 2022
Import existing GraphQL services as APIs in Azure API Management, leveraging all the existing benefits of API Management—including security, observability, and reduced latency—for their GraphQL APIs. You can also add GraphQL-specific features such as a query test console, query validation, field-based authorization, and query depth and size restriction.
With this update, you can:
- Add and manage an existing GraphQL service as an API in Azure API Management.
- Expose GraphQL APIs to consumers via the developer portal.
- Secure GraphQL APIs by applying both existing access control policies and a policy to secure and protect against GraphQL-specific attacks.
- Explore the schema and run test queries against the GraphQL APIs in the Azure and developer portals leveraging the industry standard, open-source GraphQL console.
