How to check if Azure SQL Database needs updating before October 31, 2025?

Tan 20 Reputation points

I recently received an email from MS Azure stating that I need to update my Azure SQL Server API to a newer version. Email is below.

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.

I have checked in the azure portal under Subscriptions > "My sub name" > Resources and I don't seem to use any SQL resources. Also don't have any SQL Databases or SQL Servers made in azure portal.

Based on other answers with a similar question to mine the email is simply a general email sent if I am subscribed to the notification and not if I am using it? But I would like to double check to see if I am using any at all. Are there any additional resources or steps I can take to see if my database needs updating besides what I did above?

    Hello Tan,

    This happend because you have "Microsoft.Sql" provider register you can verify on Azure portal -> Subscriptions -> Resource Providers, and search for "Microsoft.Sql". So if you don't have any Sql Azure resource you can ignore the notification.
