  • Also note : 

    We are maintaining and updating a list of changes and guidance for migrating from the v2 to the v3 APIs. There are specific scenarios related to on-demand encoding, such as clipping, stitching, overlays, etc. that are not yet available via the v3 APIs. The Premium Encoder is also not currently available via the v3 APIs.

    In addition, the Azure Portal for Media is going through an update to move to v3 and the AMSE Tool will also be updated. For now, it's best to just use the SDKs and REST API with v3, and the new CLI (which is shipping on 11/6 to cloud shell)
