Using Postman to Hit an API Management Endpoint with Subscription

Leave a comment

In our previous posts, we created an App Service and an API Management in Azure. Let’s now use Postman to send a request to the Azure API Management endpoint.

Go to the APIM and select the API. Under Settings, copy the Base URL:

Now, in our case, we have /api/Customers to get all customers:

So our URL is https://crmdevapim.azure-api.net/api/customers.

Let’s open Postman and create this request. Click Send:

We get a response back:

Now these tests are without a subscription. Let’s try this with a Subscription:

If we rerun our Postman request, we get a 401 Access Denied – { “statusCode”: 401, “message”: “Access denied due to missing subscription key. Make sure to include subscription key when making requests to an API.” }:

In the header in Postman, we will pass the Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key key. To get the key value, go to the APIM Subscriptions:

Resend the request and you will get back a response:
