What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable aspects of this solution for us is its ease of deployment. Also the fact that it's not adding a lot of features like ESP or similar features is good. It's okay with just being a gateway.

What needs improvement?

We haven't been working so long, so we are just starting to use it. I believe the CMS part of it has room for improvement though. That is where you write a couple of things if you want to publish your API. It's based on liquid scripting, which doesn't seem like the obvious ones to script with. I… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We checked Apigee, but it mainly failed for us. The way we wanted to write it required a cloud and our organization was not ready for pre-cloud solutions. It wasn't a good fit. It was possible to run it on prime, but that seemed like quite a big installation and ops to be running.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate 3scale as a seven or eight out of ten. I've had more issues with supporting it. Also, the CMS and Open API specification issues I mentioned above. Those things could be better or simpler.

How has it helped my organization?

3scale API Managment provides a platform facilitating Trusted Service Providers communicating with the service provider securely and efficiently. Greatly enhance direct business transactions and application to application communications

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful to improve the customization features so that the customer can do it based on their own needs. Some of the portal features are in need of improvement. The API onboarding process is quite primitive. It may not fit for an… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used similar solutions and I find that 3scale is more technical-driven. It uses great technologies and it is still easy for us to customize ourselves. In terms of API management features, I think that it is less rich than the other… more »

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I like, and have a lot of interest in learning. It is one that I recommend to our clients. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Thanks to open source communities based on Apiman/Keycloak products, Red Hat adds stable features for production perspectives.

How has it helped my organization?

Really simple integration for developers workflow because we have a unique entry point to integrate multiple APIs behind, really straight forward.

What needs improvement?

Setting up OIDC authentication would be another use case for this product. That would require at least three components : * Red Hat 3scale API Management (manager plus gateway) * Red Hat Single… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Red Hat is a good compromise for now on service support, and it provides short release cycle of open source community (stable features needs by developers).

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used Apiman and Keycloak community version. Our clients need security patch management, that's why we are using 3Scale from Red Hat in order to get erratas (security fixes) integrated.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For cloud solution, we evaluated Apiman/Keycloak community version, then 3scale in OpenShift and Azure API Management.
