Azure SQL Database 2014-04-01 APIs will be retired on 31 October 2025

I have an email alert from Microsoft. However I am not aware that we have ever used SQL API's. I have searched my Azure subscription and cannot see anything setup for SQL at all. The alert is as follows:

You're receiving this email because you use Azure SQL Database APIs.

To improve performance and security, we're updating Azure SQL Database APIs. As part of this, all version 2014-04-01 APIs will be retired on 31 October 2025. You'll need to update your resources, including templates, tools, scripts, and programs, to use a newer API version by then. Any API calls still using the older versions after that date will stop working until you've updated them.

So how can i ascertain if i am in fact using SQL API's.

Many thanks

    Hi @Justin Huntington Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A platform, thanks for posting the question
    I just provided an answer here on a similar ask please have a look and let me know if you have any additional questions.
    Customers who have registered for Microsoft.SQL will receive these notifications, Even though if the customer did not create the Azure SQL DB they receive it due to the Microsft.SQL is registered for the subscription.
