Are there options to restrict certain operations in my API from being visible to specific user roles in the developer portal?

  • I have an API in APIM with the following operations:
    • Operation1
      • Operation2
      And the groups of users: - Group1
                - Group2
                so the idea is to give access to the groups according some business rules for instance:
                      - Group1 (Operation1)
                            - Group2 (Operation2)
  • is there a way to do it and make it display only that operation to specific group.
  • Are there options to restrict certain operations in my API from being visible to specific user roles in the developer portal? For azure api management gatewayCan I control access to specific operations (endpoints) within an API for different user roles in Azure API Management's developer portal?
  • Is it possible to limit access to certain operations based on user roles directly within the developer portal, without modifying the API code.

    Ummi Aiman Izani Thanks for posting your question in Microsoft Q&A. Currently, you can assign groups (built-in or custom groups) to the products and users in that group (associate members with the group) can access all APIs and Operations belong to that product. Unfortunately, you cannot restrict access only to certain operations like described above.

    So, the workaround is to define own APIs with specific operations and expose it via a product. For example, you can define ProductA with API1 -> Operation1, ProductB with API2 -> Operation2, ProductC with API3 -> Operation1, Operation2 and then assign groups to the product like group1 -> Product1, group2 -> Product2 etc.

    I agree this would be a great feature request, and other customers have shared similar feedback: in the azure feedback. Please feel free to upvote the idea too or share your feedback and I will also pass it along internally to our product team.

    I hope this helps and let us know if you have any questions.
