API mocking, testing, and sharing are all built in functions for StopLight that work quite well. They even have functionality for generating OAI and RAML code as well, which is a huge plus. AS for as areas where StopLight is not appropriate, if you're doing anything other than API testing, StopLight may not be appropriate for use.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review OpenAPI support Markdown supports Git integration Read full review Cons 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. Read full review Simplicity of set up. Although it's not difficult, there are tools out there that are easier to set up for testing endpoints. Again, it's perfectly functional, but some competitors I think have a more user friendly UI to them. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I am not the one deciding whether to use apigee or not really. But personally, I would recommend the use of it as developing APIs on it is easy. And as a mediator between backend servers, we could easily modify request and responses in it without touching any backend code while having a centralize gateway to access our backend APIs too.

Support has helped us to resolved all the queries and community support was also good.

Quite hard to get support, at least on the coding side, when we encounter blockers. But general concerns, they would schedule a call to you for them to get a whole picture of your concern. Albeit in my experience, bad really as they haven't replied about the progress, but otherwise seems to have been fixed.

Apigee is the best in the market in terms of API Analytics Apigee is having wonderful Documentation with short videos Security is a major concern and Apigee provides an easily configurable policy to secure API Quota and rate-limit is again very easy to configure on every API basis It provides various policies to transform the response from one form to another form e.g. JSON to XML or XML to JSON

I'd like to also throw Runscope and Fiddler into the mix. Between StopLight and all these competitors, we've chosen StopLight primarily for the support, ease of use, and reliability. Most tools out there today are top-notch, so it really comes down to personal preference and different use-cases. Having used other API testing frameworks, StopLight definitely stacks up against the competition.

We are thinking of other ways to create ROI, possibly through data/service barter.
