I wish they had the bigger community to serve the developers better
My first API manager and I loved it. Go for it
Helping digital partners to expose their internal ecosystems through APIs
It helps keep all our APIs organized and manageable- which is vital in our I dustry.
It is a bit pricey at $500 a month, but it is worth it.
We are able to manage and organize our APIs so well with Apigee.
Best interaction to build restful api's and integrate with external third parties
Some of restful api's integrations are a bit tightened
Apis integration with other interfaces
For any major project, it becomes vital to not only control the flow of imports and introduce functionalities but also set a restraint with quotas and ultimately be able to do analytics. This is where Apigee Edge wins the game! As it provides a proxy to do all this, you need not provision the aforementioned assets yourself.
I still think that it maybe vulnerable to malicious client web apps which do not have an admin sdk provisioning.
It makes api management (proxy) easy because of its easy integration with Cloud based web apps.
It is powerful and easy to use. I do like how it offers developer management, automation capabilities and analytics that are accurate. Further, the API Proxies that enable you to route, transform and secure traffic through the API gateway are one of my best features.
The pricing is a bit too high especially when starting out.
This is the go to product if you are looking for API security, rate limiting requests, quotas and analytics to your API development.
Apigee Edge has helped us to get analytics on our API requests and rate limit API requests. This has seen us drop requests that we don't want and also helped us in decision making on what to concentrate on from the analytics we get concerning API requests.
It’s user friendly and works best for SRE world
Complex to setup and administration is robust
Very good tool for proxying target APIs. gives nice analytics and billing reports on the dashboard. easy integration with SOAP or REST APIs.
support response and debugging issues with proxies
expensive but effective API proxying tool with ease of deployment
API monetization and data analytics for API consumption.
The part i liked the most is Apigee Edge works like an abstraction layer that "fronts" for my actual APIs and provides me many features like securities, rate limiting, analytics and so much more.
In the spec design part i had to use swagger, if you are not familiar with this you need to learn it. There is not any single page dashboard of insights report and other workings.
If you want a product to provide your APIs security, rate limiting etc and a layer to provide abstraction to APIs you can go for it.
I solved the issues of API securities and rate limiting policies application. it benefited as a layer to reduce unwanted api requests to the API.
I like most its proxies management in the application. As well as i can access all three services analytic, api and developer services at a single platform. Its easy to monitor and i can review the data properly in graphical repersentation. Its user interface is awesome and enrich with several inbuilt features. Easily can update the quota limit and scale the same as per the project requirements. Its API integration is pretty easy.
Application is bit costly but as per service features its a worth of use.
This is a fantastic tool for proxies management and data analytics. Monitoring is so easy and good.
Using this application we increased the security and monitored the data easily. As well as greatly reduced the integration efforts.
Ease of developing and maintaining revisions of proxies for API
Support is not that great and production issues can be hanging for a bit until looked upon
Spike arresting, caching, url redirections , security etc. it has definitely made our API stable and secure
