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

Pros
I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component.I have not encountered instability with the product.We use it to build API proxies for securing targeted back-ends with an emphasis on Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD).It accelerates development and deployment processes.Highly scalable from any initial topology to horizontal extensionEasy interface to monetize and deliver APIs with very easy integration for third-party development environments/delivery.It has a very efficient logging system which is easy to maintain.Apigee Analytics dashboard is useful to monitor transactions, error percentage, transaction latency, etc.

We have used it for the web and Windows-based applications. It is very productive in terms of execution.​Record and Replay to ease onboarding of new users.Object Repository Technology, which is a good mean to identify graphical components of the applications under test.With frequent releases, using automation to perform regression testing can save us huge amount of time and resources.Hidden among the kitchen sink of features is a new Data Generation tool called the Test Combinations Generator.I like the fact that we can use LeanFT with our UFT licenses as well.Being able to automate different applications makes day-to-day activities a lot easier.The most valuable features for us are the GUI, the easy identification of objects, and folder structure creation.

Cons
Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates.Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster.I would like them to add features, such as caching and mediation policies.It needs predictive analysis of consumption.Technical support model for OPDK should be more exposed and mature in terms of providing support during installation, run, and debug of Apigee in production on OPDK mode.Maintaining and deploying revisions need to be more defined.Proxy versioning seems a bit confusing/buried in the publishing experience, especially for the URI-based versioning approach.Development IDE, especially for Architect Review.

Needs to improve the integration with the CI/CD pipeline (VSTS and report generation).I would like to have detailed description provided to test the cloud-based applications.Scripting has become more complex from a maintenance standpoint to support additional browsers.Jumping to functions is supported from any Action/BPT Component code, but not from inside a function library where the target function exists in another library file. Workaround: Select search entire project for the function.I'd like to see UFT integrated more with some of the open source tools like Selenium, where web is involved.Perhaps more coverage as far as different languages go. I'm talking more about object identification.It doesn't support Telerik UI controls and we are currently looking for a patch for this.You have to deal with issues such as the firewall and how can the tool talk with the application, i.e., if the application is on a company network and so on. That, of course, is important to figure out.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing options need to be chosen on a case-by-case basis.Since it was acquired by Google, we can get a license based on our requirements and the cost level will depend on cloud access and support.Based on your usage of the APIs you can take a decision to go with either an on-cloud or OPDK version. Get in touch with the sales representatives of Apigee.As most of the customers say, the tool is a bit expensive.

For the price of five automation licenses, you simply would not be able to hire five manual testers for two years worth of 24/7 manual testing work on demand.It's an expensive solution.
