Update API Management Tooling

Jason Wilson 0 Reputation points

A client received a warning "Update your Azure API Management tooling to a supported management API version by 1 June 2024". I am hoping to assist them with the effort but am not familiar with APIM. Is it possible to test the update in a manner that won't cause disruption. Thanks for your help.

    Hi @Jason Wilson Greetings! Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum. Thank you for posting this question here.

    Azure API Management uses Azure Resource Manager (ARM) to configure your API Management instances. The API version is embedded in your use of templates that describe your infrastructure, tools that are used to configure the service, and programs that you write to manage your Azure API Management services.

    Starting June 1, 2024, all API versions for the Azure API Management service prior to 2021-08-01 are being retired (disabled). At any time after June 1, 2024, API calls using an API version prior to 2021-08-01 may fail without further notice. You'll no longer be able to create or manage your API Management services with existing templates, tools, scripts, and programs using a retired API version until they've been updated to use API version 2021-08-01 or later. Data plane operations (such as mediating API requests in the gateway) will be unaffected by this update, including after June 1, 2024.

    Please refer the Required Action section of the article API version retirements (June 2024) for more information on the resources that get impacted and the action items to take.

    since this is just a tooling update, is it correct that the API will stay functional, but will not be able to be managed until the necessary changes are made

    After an API version is retired, if you prefer not to update your affected tools, scripts, and programs, your services will continue to run. However, you won't be able to add or remove APIs, change API policy, or otherwise configure your API Management service with affected tools.

    Please note that once you update the Minimum API version, you won't be able to revert back from the UI. Refer the solution shared on a thread - Rollback changes to revert these changes for your testing.

    Let us know if you need more assistance or need further information. Thank you.
