APIM Developer stv1 tier upgrade

Hi all,

My client uses a Azure API Management Tier "Developer" and Platform version "stv1" with VNet injection. In Azure portal we have now the notification that we have to upgrade to stv2.

What version will we get after the upgrade? The table displayed here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/compute-infrastructure#what-are-the-compute-platforms-for-api-management indicates that there is a stv2 Developer available, but when I look here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/v2-service-tiers-overview then there is no Developer stv2 tier.

When there is no Developer stv2 tier available, which tier will then be used?

This question is because a different version will probably cost more and this needs to be aligned with my business.

    @JorneS Thanks for reaching out. To clarify, the stv1 and stv2 compute platforms are different versions of the Azure API Management service. The stv1 platform is an older version of the service, while the stv2 platform is the latest version of the service. The stv2 platform includes several improvements and new features please refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/compute-infrastructure#what-are-the-benefits-of-the-stv2-platform

    where as the v2 pricing tiers (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/v2-service-tiers-overview) are a new set of tiers for API Management. Hosted on a new, highly scalable and available Azure infrastructure that's different from the stv1 and stv2 compute platforms, the v2 tiers aren't affected by the retirement of the stv1 platform. please refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/compute-infrastructure#what-about-the-v2-pricing-tiers


    so, to answer your question you will be still in developer sku after migrating to stv2.

    I hope this helps! do let me know incase of further queries, i would be happy to assist you.
