Can easily find and look at our API users. Suspension of keys is also easy
UI is clunky for new users. When training team members, it often takes a few times for them to understand simple actions due to confusion.
We use 3Scale for api management and tracking.
What I like to use 3scale is that it allows me to assign, monetize and share their API through the analysis of system performance, access control and speed limits.
A negative aspect is that the platform 3scale is a bit difficult to set up and initially but gradually mature use the system while you're going familiar and help you in your daily work.
We have used this cloud-based solution and have been pleased with the initial results for this reason 3scale recommend any small and medium enterprises.
The most common problem that I have met is that thanks to 3scale there are options for us users NGINX and Varnish gateways as well as through Amazon Machine Image (AMI) in AWS Marketplace. This has helped me a lot.
Pros: Found this to be a powerful API management software, being able to guide, direct and establish rules of engagement for API services.
Cons: Not the easiest platform to initial set up and mature. Expect to spend some time learning it and you'll want to reach out and work with their customer service team to get things done right.
Overall: Powerful tool to manage API rules and engagement.
