'set-method' Policy Statement

Q

How to use the "set-method" Policy Statement for an Azure API service operation?

A

The "set-method" Policy Statement can be used to modify the HTTP verb when Azure forwarding the client request to the backend Web service.

By default, Azure uses the save HTTP verb as client request received at the Azure portal. If you want to change the HTTP verb, you need to insert a "set-method" Policy Statement in the <inbound> block as shown below:

<inbound>
	<set-method>POST</set-method>
</inbound>

If the above policy is used on a client request using the GET method:

GET https://fyicenter.azure-api.net/profiles HTTP/1.1

Azure will call the backend service with the POST method, assuming

POST http://dev.fyicenter.com/services/profiles HTTP/1.1
