How can I "disable" (but not delete) an API Management service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using MSDN credit to try API Management service, it seems it incur charges over weekend even though I was not testing it (i.e. no request was made to it).

    Can I disable it on Friday evening and enable it on Monday morning?

  • Hello, an engineer provided the following response.

    As in other compute services in azure, API Management service consumes resources even when no calls are made to it.  The service will be charged regardless of being used or not as long as it is active.  As of now we do not have a provision to disable and re-enable service without deleting the resources.
