Miao Jiang joins Scott Hanselman discuss the API economy and how companies must master the challenges inherent in building, maintaining, managing, and exposing APIs to participate. That's where Azure API Management can help. Azure API Management is a solution for publishing APIs to external and internal consumers. With Azure API Management, you can take any backend system, hosted anywhere, and expose it through a modern API gateway. Join us to learn about new features and how to expose your APIs with peace of mind.

    When will the price be reduced? Its ridiculously expensive compared to other clouds

    @Smythe24 There's a new consumption plan coming out in case you haven't heard of that. It's going to be limited in features though.

    1. Can we integrate this in the Azure-DevOps Project or CI/CD enablement ?

    @Joey Eng @MiaoJiang Thanks for the info. A consumption plan would make sense for people on a budget. Where can I find more info about it?

    APIM is a nice product but still no AD integration at Basic or Consumption levels. Think MS are shooting themselves in the foot on that one - AD is a huge motivator for moving to Azure over other platforms for companies that use AD in-house. I'm running IoTHub, 8 Application Servers, 2 Databases, several Logic Apps and other bits and pieces for $30 a day, but MS expect me to pay an additional $26 a day just for APIM (at a level that includes AD integration)?? Not big money for MS to care about I know but its early days and the solution will likely scale up over time as adoption increases. However, now I find myself having to build internal use solutions without APIM which would be nice to have but not essential - because the starting price including AD integration is just too high. I only use APIM for external APIs which will always only be a very small part of our overall solution (probably even free under the Consumption Plan).

    You can use AD as the OAuth provider for authenticating API calls across all tiers (with validate-jwt policy).

    We do not support AD as an identity provider for signin/signup to the Developer Portal in the Consumption and Basic tier. For Consumption tier, there is no developer portal.
