Apigee Edge

Apigee has been great when managing the quota based access to the APIs. It is really good and suitable when considering proxying the in-house server endpoints access with the way it provides security with API Key validation and OAuth.

There are countless solutions and needs in the marketplace. Some solutions are straight forward, other highly complicated and innovative. From my perspective, our platform and application is highly complex and innovative, with many "one-off" features.

Pros

Apigee Edge

  • Better exception handling with the Raise exception policies help to monitor the flow by setting up the flow conditions.
  • Easy development of a Proxy and APIs with much less tutoring and helps make getting started for new users easy.
  • Very good documentation and blog with details of most common failures and error handling.
  • A very very easy to use console.

Oracle API Platform Cloud

  • Oracles Cloud is endlessly variable, and endlessly expandable.
  • These are qualities that we needed in our platform. Oracle's Name in business was also an important aspect of our decision.
  • The most important "like" is the support. Oracle Backs up its cloud with a technical expertise that I believe is second to none.

Cons

Apigee Edge

  • Only one user can be active in a proxy at a time
  • No version control
  • Prohibited from using JSON.stringify on Apigee objects (tokens)
  • Debugging is difficult
  • Unable to rename or delete policies without bumping revision
  • Why would anyone give a js policy one name, display name something else, and script a different name?
  • 'Trace' limited to only 20 transactions
  • UI allows users to add target servers, but users must utilize the api to turn on SSL.
  • I'm sure there's more, they just aren't coming to mind right now.
  • Apigee forgets (expires?) your password at random intervals without notice. Every few weeks, or days, sometimes even three times in one day, I'll attempt to login to Apigee and my password will be 'wrong'. I've reset my password and Apigee still claims it's wrong. I've had to reset my password three times before it finally let me log back in.

  • Planned maintenance. Oracle has certain days it schedules maintenance. We have been speaking with Oracle executives about the inability to schedule maintenance on days that are custom to the client.

Alternatives Considered

Apigee Edge

A Node server as a proxy that uses JSON Web Tokens would be more maintainable than Apigee.

Return on Investment

Apigee Edge

  • Easily spin up a new proxy has helped in setting up a proxy for new products right away in days.
  • Analytics and reports generation in Apigee has helped understand the business better and helped tuned the cost factor.
  • Apigee could get better with the cost factor.

  • For ROI, my advice would be to stay the course. It will take longer than you think and cost more than you expect.
