Provision a self-hosted gateway in Azure API Management
Provisioning a gateway resource in your Azure API Management instance is a prerequisite for deploying a self-hosted gateway. This article walks through the steps to provision a gateway resource in API Management.
Self-hosted gateway feature is in preview. During the preview, the self-hosted gateway is available only in the Developer and Premium tiers at no additional charge. Developer tier is limited to a single self-hosted gateway deployment.
Complete the following quickstart: Create an Azure API Management instance
Go to your API Management instance
In the Azure portal, search for and select API Management services.
On the API Management screen, select your API Management instance.
Provision a self-hosted gateway
- Select the Gateways from under Settings.
- Click + Add.
- Enter the Name and Region of the gateway.
Region specifies intended location of the gateway nodes that will be associated with this gateway resource. It's semantically equivalent to a similar property associated with any Azure resource, but can be assigned an arbitrary string value.
- Optionally, enter a Description of the gateway resource.
- Optionally, select + under APIs to associate one or more APIs with this gateway resource.
You can associate and remove an API from a gateway on the API's Settings tab.
By default, none of the existing APIs will be associated with the new gateway resource. Therefore, attempts to invoke them via the new gateway will result in
404 Resource Not Found responses.
- Click Add.
Now the gateway resource has been provisioned in your API Management instance. You can proceed to deploy the gateway.
