  1. What are APIM Policies? APIM policies are statements executed by Azure APIM to modify the behavior of API request, response and exception flows. The logic/conditions written as part of the policies are executed at various stages of API execution like, request received (inbound), before request sent to backend service/API (backend), before sending response to requester (outbound) and in case of any exceptions during the request processing (on-error). Policies are defined as an XML format with different tag to define the execution stage and the actual policy.

  2. Problem While working with Azure cloud platform, often there will be instances where resources needs moving across resource groups for maintenance reasons or because of re-organising of products. There might even cases where the resource may need to be moved across subscriptions.

  3. Problem The project has a bunch of ARM templates as part of IAC scripts and more often only couple, if not few templates get modified.

  4. Problem When your website is a bunch of html, css, image and js files with no backend and is a blog (like mine) and you are expecting your readers to give feedback on your content and be interactive, you definitely need a comments section for your posts. Without an actual server for storage, it is impossible to implement user comments. With non revenue generating sites like mine it would not be an option to spend money every month to maintain few user comments if any.

  5. Introduction Continuing from the previous post, the new generation of authentication mechanism was created to satisfy the new generation of application, starting from apps that run just in the browser to apps that run on micro-controllers. This new generation of authentication mechanism called as the modern authentication protocols are built on top of the OAuth protocol and taking inspiration from SAML. In the below article the term IDP refers to the Identity provider, the external service that is responsible for authenticating a user and issuing authorization tokens.

  6. Introduction Authentication has been an important component in the world of IT from the time companies required their employees to prove their identity to use the company’s computing resources whether it was to execute its business processes or accessing email or file. During the earlier days employees used to login to their computers using a username and password, which was stored in a central server like an active directory (in case of Microsoft tech stack).
