Defender for API, Deadlock Recommendations want plan enabled, plan already is enabled

Stefan Schulte 0 Reputation points

Hello community!
I followed the steps in

Enabling the Defender for APIs plan is done.

After that, the manual stated, that there should pop up the recommendation "Azure API Management APIs should be onboarded to Defender for APIs."

Instead of the wanted recommendation there is "Microsoft Defender for APIs should be enabled" (Which already is)

So I am now in a kind of Deadlock

Thanks a lot for any suggestions

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A. From above query I could understand that you are following Protect your APIs with Defender for APIs and have enabled Defender for APIs plan but Defender for APIs is missing from the recommendations and instead you are getting Microsoft Defender for APIs should be enabled among recommendations.

    Please do correct me by responding in the comments section if this is not the case.

    This behavior is expected as After enabling Defender for APIs, onboarded APIs take up to 50 minutes to appear in the Recommendations tab.

    You may try now, and the Defender for APIs should be available in recommendations.
