    Hello Team,

    Can anyone explain me the difference between "Publish Web API" vs "Publish REST Service Proxy Wizard".

    I believe both offers the same fuctionality and no differences. So please explain me . Many Thanks in advance.

    Hi Praty,

    Publishing as a proxy service creates a default policy that captures the request URI and query parameters and forwards to a backend service. Using the Gateway a proxy for the request.

    Meaning, you wish to not expose your backend server to a client, the backend:
    You could create a proxy policy that will accept requests at which will forward automatically to the backend.

    So the main differences:
    a. policy auto created to proxy the request
    b. service published as a wildcard uri, ie: /test/*
