Managed Api Connectors require more than just the connection details to be detailed in the Logic Apps connections.

Easy Auth | Standard Logic App with Azure API Management

Overview The recent work that I have been doing with Standard Logic Apps and linking them as backends to Azure API Management has relied on the use of the Logic App Workflow SAS key for security. This is a valid authentication approach, but there are risks that you need to be aware of as well as best practices that you need to be abiding by. Such as: Some Potential Risks:

Azure API Management | Logic App (Standard) Backend Using a Swagger Definition

Overview After setting up a Logic App (Standard) Backend in Azure API Management (APIM) in my last post, I wanted to try and see if I could create a Swagger definition from a Standard Logic App which could then be used to simplify the API authoring process in APIM. This post shows my methods of doing so. If you haven’t already I would recommend reading my previous post as this one will be working off of the building blocks of the last.

Overview Updated [31/01/2024]: See New Post showing methods of linking a Logic App Standard as a Backend to APIM through a Swagger Definition. I have recently been reviewing the method in which a Logic App (Standard) workflow would be setup as an API in API Management. My aim is to overcome and simplify the limitation whereby directly importing a Logic App (Standard) workflow is not available, only in consumption. After some exploration I believe I have identified a configurable and secure method in setting up the front-to-backend routing as can be seen in the diagram below: The overall design aims to abstract the backend from the api operations, i.
