Cons
"The developer console for external users could be improved, especially in the testing site.""I would like to see better scalability and better performance.""Multi-tenant functionalities is missing from the system, especially when it comes to the developer code of features.""This solution is only available as a cloud-based deployment and it would be very helpful to have an on-premises version.""The portal where we publish the APIs could be improved. Maybe this is because we didn't configure it. It is quite easy to bypass API management because we have a lot of information shared on the portal, where we publish our APIs. I worry there is potential for a security breach in the API publishing. There needs to be more security available on terms of the way we publish them.""Could use clearer configuration when it comes to API policies.""The user interface needs improvement.""There is always room for improvement. There should be more analytics abilities so you can know how much traffic there is. Log Analyzer isn't well integrated with this solution."

More Microsoft Azure API Management Cons »

"I would like to see some additional features like having some extensions for .NET core because we use it for our back-end language.""It is a young product and does not have the kind of brand recognition that would make it a more popular solution with our clients.""Sometimes when new features are released, they are not immediately stable."
