Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle API Platform Cloud Service.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The on-premises connectivity can be improved because it is still not at it's best. I still have to install a gateway on-premises, then a firewall API management portal on the cloud. In the next release, I would like to see more security policies and for it to include an on-cloud gateway.
The APIs to retrieve the list of APIs should be improved. The need to allow token-based authorization with grant types other than the current password types, allowing us to integrate the API more easily into our public facing custom developer portal. Currently, only tokens generated by the Oracle Cloud login screen can be used. 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.
The product continues to improve and becomes more feature rich. We know that there are tools to more closely integrate with Configuration Management. Features to make more of Identity frameworks.
