Send API inspector traces to Application Insights

In the December 2020 release of Azure API Management, there was a release note that drew my attention: You can now log API inspector traces to Application Insights and Azure Monitor by setting the verbosity property of the service/diagnostics resource to debug. Azure...

Dynamically expose Open API definitions in Azure API Management

Open API is currently the most common used API standard out there.  API Management has full support for this standard.  The basis of this standard is the Open API definition (often referred to as "Swagger" - the tooling), which describes all the functionality that a...

Layered API design in Azure API Management

Designing and composing APIs is a very subjective matter and there are many ways to success (and even more to failure).  One approach I've always liked is the way MuleSoft describes it.  They define three layers of APIs: Experience APIs: purpose-built APIs for...

Emit custom metrics from Azure API Management

Validate a Bicep file in your YAML pipeline!

When setting up CI/CD pipelines, it's good to have an explicit build stage.  This stage is typically used to compile your code and run unit tests.  When we are dealing with Infrastructure as Code, such as Bicep or ARM templates, there is no need to compile your files...

Achieving end-to-end traceability between Azure and Azure DevOps!

Azure DevOps is great for automating your releases to Azure.  On your Azure pipeline, you have an instant overview of the deployment: what source code is being deployed and to which environments?  Unfortunately, you don't have that visibility in Azure.  When you...

Azure Service Bus vs Event Grid

For many architecture designs, I need to make the choice between Azure Service Bus and Event Grid.  Azure Service Bus is more targeted to transactional messaging, Event Grid is optimized for handling discrete events.  Both services are publish/subscribe engines. ...
