At May 11th-13th was again INTEGRATE in the ExCeL Exhibition Center in London. It’s the premier integration conference for anyone who is working in Microsoft Integration space. The last couple of years it was already a very big event but this year the event was even bigger with more speakers and more visitors.
I also gave a presentation at the event and that was about “Implementing a real life scenario for the API Economy”. In the presentation I first talked about how you can create a website in Azure with a Web Apps and then I showed how you can integrate the API Management Developer Portal with your own website.
This can be important because what if you already have a website where people can login and create users? Or you want to add Payment in the Developer Portal because you want to charge money for your APIs? In that case the functionality in API Management that you get out of the box is not enough and you need also other functionality in Azure.
Using Delegation and REST API in API Management
If you want to learn more about Delegation in API Management see also How to delegate user registration and product subscription. There is also an API Management Delegation sample on GitHub with a Web App that you can use and modify if you want to use Delegation for user authentication and product subscription. If you want to see how Delegation works with a custom website you can also try this out yourself on my sample website Apigize.com.
