Microsoft Azure provides various services for its cloud support, and organizations from all sizes would like to hire azure professionals for their business support.

This course will help you to cover all skills and knowledge of Azure API management services and make your work much easier.


These API management services fill the gap between internal developers and external partners by publishing API’s. The front-end API’s is responsible to monitor and control the whole API services.

Changing the API configuration will make the API services adapt for project execution. Transformation policies will help you to perform the changes in the API section.

Activity and diagnostics logs will support the API’s security functions and real-time visibility is also possible with View metrics.

You should be aware of revision handling and all functions to perform API without any error. For this, you need proper training and knowledge from a real-time expert. In this program, you will be trained by the corporate and software trainer, Sandeep Soni. This course is a gateway to establish your potential to launch a full-fledged API program that will be useful for your project execution.

Benefits of API Management

  1. Work with any host, API, and scale.
  2. Attract more developers.
  3. Secure and optimize your APIs.
  4. Gain insights into your APIs.

To use API Management, administrators create APIs. Each API consists of one or more operations, and each API can be added to one or more products. To use an API, developers subscribe to a product that contains that API, and then they can call the API’s operation, subject to any usage policies that may be in effect.


APIs and operations

APIs are the foundation of an API Management service instance. Each API represents a set of operations available to developers. Each API contains a reference to the back-end service that implements the API, and the map of its operations to the operations implemented by the back-end service. Operations in API Management are highly configurable, with control

over URL mapping, query and path parameters, request and response content, and operation response caching. Rate limit, quotas, and IP restriction policies can also be implemented at the API or individual operation level.



Products are how APIs are provided to developers.

Products in API Management have one or more APIs, and are configured with a title, description, and terms of use.

Products can be Open or Protected. Protected products must be subscribed to before they can be used, while open products can be used without a subscription. Subscription approval is configured at the product level and can either require administrator approval or be auto-approved.

When a product is ready for use by developers it can be published.

Groups are used to manage the visibility of products to developers.



API Management has the following immutable system groups.

Administrators – Azure subscription administrators are of this group. Administrators manage API Management service instances, creating the APIs, operations, and products that are used by developers. members

Developers – Authenticated developer portal users fall into this group. Developers are the customers that build applications using your APIs. Developers are granted access to the developer portal and build applications that call the operations of an API.

Guests – Unauthenticated developer portal users, such as prospective customers visiting the developer portal of an API Management instance fall into this group. They can be granted certain read-only access, such as the ability to view APIs but not call them.

Note: In addition to these system groups, administrators can create custom groups or leverage external groups in associated Azure Active Directory tenants.



Policies are a powerful capability of API Management that allows the publisher to change the behavior of the API through configuration.

Policies are a collection of statements that are executed sequentially on the request or response of an API.

Popular statements include format conversion from XML to JSON and call rate limiting to restrict the number of incoming calls from a developer, and many other policies are available.
