Key-value revisions

A key-value revision defines the historical representation of a key-value resource. Revisions expire after 7 days for Free tier stores, or 30 days for Standard tier stores. Revisions support the List operation.

For all operations, key is an optional parameter. If omitted, it implies any key.

For all operations, label is an optional parameter. If omitted, it implies any label.

This article applies to API version 1.0.


  • All HTTP requests must be authenticated. See the authentication section.
  • All HTTP requests must provide explicit api-version. See the versioning section.

List revisions

GET /revisions?label=*&api-version={api-version} HTTP/1.1


HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/; charset=utf-8"
Accept-Ranges: items
    "items": [
          "etag": "4f6dd610dd5e4deebc7fbaef685fb903",
          "key": "{key}",

The result is paginated if the number of items returned exceeds the response limit. Follow the optional Link response header and use rel="next" for navigation. Alternatively, the content provides a next link in the form of the @nextLink property.

GET /revisions?api-version={api-version} HTTP/1.1


Content-Type: application/; charset=utf-8
Accept-Ranges: items
Link: <{relative uri}>; rel="next"
    "items": [
    "@nextLink": "{relative uri}"

List subset of revisions

Use the Range request header. The response contains a Content-Range header. If the server can't satisfy the requested range, it responds with HTTP 416 (RangeNotSatisfiable).

GET /revisions?api-version={api-version} HTTP/1.1
Range: items=0-2


HTTP/1.1 206 Partial Content
Content-Type: application/; charset=utf-8
Content-Range: items 0-2/80


A combination of key and label filtering is supported. Use the optional key and label query string parameters.

GET /revisions?key={key}&label={label}&api-version={api-version}

Supported filters

Key filter Effect
key is omitted or key=* Matches any key
key=abc Matches a key named abc
key=abc* Matches keys names that start with abc
key=*abc Matches keys names that end with abc
key=*abc* Matches keys names that contain abc
key=abc,xyz Matches keys names abc or xyz (limited to 5 CSV)
Label filter Effect
label is omitted or label= Matches entry without label
label=* Matches any label
label=prod Matches the label prod
label=prod* Matches labels that start with prod
label=*prod Matches labels that end with prod
label=*prod* Matches labels that contain prod
label=prod,test Matches labels prod or test (limited to 5 CSV)

Reserved characters

The reserved characters are:

*, \, ,

If a reserved character is part of the value, then it must be escaped by using \{Reserved Character}. Non-reserved characters can also be escaped.

Filter validation

If a filter validation error occurs, the response is HTTP 400 with error details:

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
Content-Type: application/problem+json; charset=utf-8
  "type": "",
  "title": "Invalid request parameter '{filter}'",
  "name": "{filter}",
  "detail": "{filter}(2): Invalid character",
  "status": 400


  • All:

    GET /revisions
  • Items where the key name starts with abc:

    GET /revisions?key=abc*&api-version={api-version}
  • Items where the key name is either abc or xyz, and labels contain prod:

    GET /revisions?key=abc,xyz&label=*prod*&api-version={api-version}

Request specific fields

Use the optional $select query string parameter and provide a comma-separated list of requested fields. If the $select parameter is omitted, the response contains the default set.

GET /revisions?$select=value,label,last_modified&api-version={api-version} HTTP/1.1
