In this video, we look at how to use Cloud Partner Portal CPP API for managing “Virtual Machine” offers in Azure Marketplace.
The document called “Cloud Partner Portal API Reference” describes seeminglyolderAPI that existed with the previous version of the publisher portal called Cloud Partner Portal or CPP.
If you had used CPP in the past, you know that in 2019–2020 all offers were migrated to the new Microsoft Partner Center. Therefore, we might expect that all offer typesshould now be manageable via some newAPI exposed by the Partner Center. However, as the note in the doc above says, “Cloud Partner Portal APIs are integrated with and will continue working with Partner Center” for many of the offer types including Virtual Machines. While, the newer Partner Center Ingestion API only supports “Azure Application” (i.e. solution template and managed app) offer types (see this related article).
In this video walkthrough, we look at how to use Postman to invoke a few REST methods of the Cloud Partner Portal CPP API to view and update a Virtual Machine offer and see the changes reflect in the Partner Center UI.
