Is it possible we can add some validity to a APIKey in API management. We wants to control the APIKey generation and need seperate validity for seperate kind of end users.

Hi Madhav,

APIKey is generated in Developer Portal by the developer to access the API protected by the APIKey.

if required any time developer can regenerate the new key, do you want yourself(administrator) to generate key and provide to the developer?

Please provide details

I just want to add some validity (expiration time) as an Admin on the specific API Key

Hi Madhav,

Typically the idea of API Management is to give the Developers self-subscription access to APIs, and give them control over generating and invalidating API Keys.

However if you as an Admin see a need for giving limited time access, you can manually invalidate a Developers API Key or automate the process via API call.
