Review your VNET configurations that may be affected by IP address changes

Published date: March 22, 2022

On 31 March 2023, we are making the resource providers for Azure API Management zone redundant in each region. This exercise is a part of our continuing work to increase the resiliency of API Management services. As a result of this work, we are changing the IP address of the resource provider in these seven regions: 


Old IP Address 

New IP Address 

Canada Central 

Brazil South 

Germany West Central 

South Africa North 

Korea Central 

Central India 

South Central US 

Your environments are affected if: 

  • Your service runs in one or more of the regions indicated in the table above. 

  • Your API Management service is running inside a virtual network. 

  • Your virtual network Network Security Group is configured with explicit source IP address filtering. 

After 31 March 2023, if you prefer not to make changes to your IP addresses, your services will continue to run but you will not be able to add or remove APIs, change API policy, or otherwise configure your API Management service. 

Action required 

To avoid potential service disruptions, please review your virtual network configuration and review the change notice in our documentation. If any security rules reference the old IP addresses in the table above, review the virtual network configuration reference and make necessary updates before 31 March  2023.
