Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

It is a good tool for API management and it has more advancements than all other tools in the market in certain areas.""We have been using Apigee mostly for proxy FGIs. We also use its security features as well as traffic control features.""I use it because it's simple, it automatically updates, and It hasn't given me any issues."

Cons
"Apigee could do more to make users aware of what is available in the add-ons.""The solution tends to hide the limitations to keep selling the product.""The Apigee cloud admin UI could be more user-friendly by adding a few more features.""Apigee does not have a testing feature.""The setup and installation process could be improved with a container-based system.""The integration could be improved within the solution. There is a need to pay more attention to this.""I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity""The pricing of the solution could be improved upon. We'd like it if it was less costly."

"More integration and usability with the cloud microservices would be nice""The review process should be improved. There seem to be some gaps, at least for us, for the editing part because we would like to have a full request review mechanism. They support some comments, but it is really hard to manage those comments. We would like to use the full request. Therefore, we are now looking to integrate with repositories. It has integration with Bitbucket and GitHub, but we have some internal constraints, and we need to move some of the repositories to GitHub. Our source code is on-premise in Bitbucket, and it was a bit of a problem for us to integrate. Now we are transitioning our repositories to GitHub, and hopefully, we can enable the integration. This will probably solve the problem with the review and approval. Its customization should also be improved. There are limitations around the support for the developer portal. There should be more customization options for the website that you can use as a developer portal. Currently, it has only Swagger UI with minimal customization. You cannot actually add additional pages and documentation for explaining concepts and general things. That's why we have started to look around to see what other tools are doing. They should also allow tagging on the API. We would like to add some tagging on the API to reflect certain things. Currently, any metadata that you would like to have has to be a part of the spec. You cannot do anything else. It should also have support for Open API 3.1, which was released at the beginning of the year. It would be great to be able to switch to that."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would like to see the implementation of further options for billing because as it is now, the opportunities you have in terms of a package are limited.""If the budget is not a concern then I will choose to go with Apigee over WSA-2, but if it is then I would prefer the latter solution.""The price of Apigee could be less expensive. The solution can be purchased monthly or annually.""The cost increases as the usage increases.""We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost.""It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive.""The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made.""It is a bit on the expensive side. Its licensing cost is a bit high, and that's where we've seen people going back on their decisions."

"It has a yearly subscription, but I am not sure."
