Oracle Autonomous Mobile Cloud Enterprise Room for Improvement

From my point of view, it would be desirable if Swagger would also be supported as a valid description format for custom APIs. Currently, there's only support for RAML. In addition, it would be good to include further security mechanisms, e.g., allowing authentication via client certificates, which is currently not supported. Custom API can be based on RAML documents (v0.8) and it is also possible to export the RAML document of an implemented Custom API. This makes custom API creation as well as Mobile app implementation more efficient since there is a common API description available. With respect to other Cloud Services, like Oracle API Platform Cloud Service, it would be desirable if Custom APIs in MCS can also be based on the Swagger, respectively, Open API documentation format, to be more consistent regarding the overall Oracle Cloud platform, and to be more interoperable between different Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings. A second thing that I wanted to mention is that it would be nice to include more features, in the area of security, with respect to authentication and authorization. Currently, Mobile Backends can be secured by leveraging HTTP Basic Authentication and OAuth2. I’d be happy to see support for a further mechanism, like allowing authentication via client certificates, which would also allow to uniquely identify the device sending specific requests. Currently, you’d need to fully establish a Mobile Device Management solution to achieve this, which is not required in every case. Adding more features in the security area would give users more flexibility. View full review »

One of the key areas in which MCS needs improvement is documentation. New features, like Zero Footprint SSO, need better documentation with detailed integration steps. View full review »
