PaaS vNext means you can deploy Azure Web Apps, Functions, Logic Apps, API Management and EventGrid to an Arc-enabled Kubernetes cluster, so not as a PaaS offering in the public cloud.

Example of how to validate a Json Web Token (JWT) and retrieve a value from that JWT via an API Management policy.
To parameterize a logic app with a secret value, you can use a parameter of type securestring in your logic app. In the parameter file, when specifying the value for the securestring parameter, you can refer to your keyvault instance and secretname.
To deploy an ARM template for an API Management service without using a storage account, you can use so called nested templates in your orchestrator file.
To get authorization working with an OAuth2 token v2.0 using the ValidateJWT policy in API Management, call the token endpoint with scope api://[ClientId Service]/.default.

Azure CLI (or Bash) is a cross-platform command-line interface with commands to create and manage Azure resources. It’s an easy-to-use to use, cross-platform alternative for Powershell.
Via the Kusto Query Language you cannot only query Log Analytics, but also Application Insights. We typically query Application Insights to get insight into API Management calls.
