Validation between the API documentation and the resource endpoints has ensured our documentation and implementation stay aligned

What is our primary use case?

API Platform is used to manage and monitor APIs as they are published to consumers, both internally and externally to the organization. The cloud service allows us to register all of our APIs as a catalog, link to the Apiary documentation for each API, apply policies (security and usage restriction) to the runtime endpoints, and monitor usage through analytics.

Pros and Cons

  • "All API usage is now governed and tracked."
  • "There should be closer integration between the API Platform Cloud Service and the Identity Cloud Service to allow IDCS Applications, protecting backend systems, to be linked to the API Applications that consumers use to access APIs."

What other advice do I have?

There is a clear roadmap for support of standards in documentation and policies. I am keen on the fact that modern consumption protocols, like GraphQL, are also considered. At the moment you can have one policy per GraphQL service, but it would be good to have better granularity. How the platform links in with events is also a topic to consider on the roadmap.

Oracle API Platform Cloud Service covers the API Lifecycle from design to retirement

What is our primary use case?

Since I see API Management as a key enabler for digital transformation and for growing new digital economies, an consistent API Management strategy is important to define. Consequently, an API Management platform is an essential architectural component in today's applications architecture, which needs to be capable for covering the complete API lifecycle from definition to retirement, supporting an API-First development approach, because with that development of new services and functionalities can be done more efficient.

Pros and Cons

  • "Oracle's APIP CS is a platform capable for consistently covering the complete API Lifecycle from design to retirement, supporting an API-first approach."
  • "The Gateways are communicating with a Management Service, which lives in the Cloud, to send usage information or to fetch changes for the deployed APIs."
  • "I would like to see enhanced support for SOAP Service and the corresponding WS-Security policies."

What other advice do I have?

The API-first approach should be used, since it provides a lot of benefits, like consistent API Design or increased development agility. I recommend to adopt this approach and the philosophy provided by APIP CS to get the most value out of APIs.
