Operational Excellence · API Management · 2020_09

API Management service names should meet naming requirements.


When naming Azure resources, resource names must meet service requirements. The requirements for API Management service names are:

  • Between 1 and 50 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics and hyphens.
  • Start with letter.
  • End with letter or number.
  • API Management service names must be globally unique.


Consider using names that meet API Management naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if API Management service names are unique.
