Hi,

I have an API that will be invoked via APIM
I need to receive on my API the identification of the caller App. I was requested to do this by capturing the APIM subscription Key.
How can I pass the subscription Key from APIM to my invoked API and capture it there?

Help is really appreciated

Thanks,
JD

    Hi @juni dev Thanks for reaching out. From the description I understand that you wanted to capture the APIM subscription key at your backend correct me if i am wrong here,

    If yes, please note that subscription key is by designed to be sent via header/query param to the backend from APIM as shown below
