Require a subscription for products#

Configure products to require a subscription.


When publishing APIs through Azure API Management (APIM), APIs can be secured using subscription keys. Client applications that consume published APIs must subscribe before making calls to those APIs.

When combined with policies, subscriptions allow controls such as throttling to be implemented.


Consider configuring all API Management products to require a subscription.
