I have already created an APIM from the azure portal. We are currently working on a POC. Just to save cost, is there any possibility to delete and re-create the APIM without redoing the same work again ?

    @Ahmed, Adeel (FBAU) Thanks for reaching out, once you delete the APIM instance all the backend configurations will be deleted permanently. As an alternative you can use backup and restore option you can create a new APIM service, backup the old one and restore it in newly created service.

    for more information please refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/api-management-howto-disaster-recovery-backup-restore#-back-up-an-api-management-service

    Backup and restore has few constraints as well please refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/api-management-howto-disaster-recovery-backup-restore#constraints-when-making-backup-or-restore-request
