The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution. View full review »

The company needs to better support webhooks. It used to support webhooks and their policies and they have since stopped. They had some issues in the product and they abandoned the support for them. It's not come back since. Webhooks are still used by some of our production partners. It would be nice to see the support for them come back. Right now, we have to pull the API instead of using a webhook to do the notification. View full review »

Apigee is demanding on the infrastructure so the setup cost is very high for an on-premises deployment. View full review »

It is a user-friendly solution, but it would help if Google could provide a container-based solution instead of just a standalone one. With a container-based deployment and support for Terraform, it would be better for our deployments and that would be great. Right now we have to configure different areas manually. Some areas can be automated, but the deployments are not as fully automated as they could be otherwise. so, they currently have a software as a service offering or a standalone offering. I want to see something like a hybrid cloud deployment. I also want to see a private cloud deployment. View full review »
Senior Software Engineer at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
The product has a few restrictions I'd prefer weren't there. We have trouble finding use cases. For example, when we google "data locator" we can't find a use case scenario at all. We can't find more than, approximately, five use cases, however, we need more. We needed to do more than 20 configurations, and we weren't able to do that as the limit is 20 on the solution. The solution tends to hide the limitations to keep selling the product. I can't blame them for doing it, however, it makes it difficult for those of us who eventually sign on. The solution is expensive. View full review »

Software Development Manager at Reliance Jio
When compared with other products and tools in the market like MuleSoft or other API management solutions, I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity — where we don't have all of the connectors. It's not the perfect ESB, it's only for API management solutions. For example, MuleSoft will provide you with the API management solution as well as ESB, allowing you to integrate with large, complex IT systems. So, there is some lagging there that needs to be fixed. The main area they should improve is the integration capability. They should have useful connectors that we can use to provide code so that we can integrate with other systems. This needs to be improved. When compared to other products, such as MuleSoft and other tools in the market, Apigee has some lagging issues. View full review »

The integration could be improved within the solution. There is a need to pay more attention to this. It would be ideal if the solution could provide publishing capabilities as API middleware. View full review »

Founder & CDO at AppyThings
As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved. It only has to be done once every two or three years, but I would state that there is still room for improvement. View full review »
Digital Finance and IFRS 17 Capabilities at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake. Pricing is an area that can be improved, as it is a little on the higher side. It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors. I think it would be helpful if Apigee had support for voice-activated activities, rather than having to type. More intelligence in terms of being able to learn from previous activities would be a good addition in the future. View full review »
Chief Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
It would help with Apigee if we could make a list of our assets. If the client knows more about all the extensions they can use to work with through the Google cloud and we have an extensions database it would be easier to let them know what is available and we could do more to recommend Apigee for all different kinds of customer needs.

The developer portal's adoption of the OpenAPI standard needs to be improved. In the latest version of the developer portal, they have adopted the OpenAPI standard. This feature, however, can be improved by supporting more characteristics of the OpenAPI standard. View full review »

The cost of this solution could be improved and it would be better if it were on private cloud. View full review »
CEO at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
The definition of the APIs should improve because you can't easily validate the inputs and outputs. Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful. View full review »

Access restrictions can be improved. For example, you can't restrict access to some people or some groups. You have to give them total access. View full review »

Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates. View full review »

Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster. I would advise anyone who is interested, to use the SaaS implementation. View full review »
