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.

Stoplight

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.

Pros

Apigee Edge

  • Manage user access, we can allow specific access to users based on their need and even customize requests of services based on user requirements.
  • Allow branding, so that SFO can maintain its look and feel but still get the support and functionalities we need from Apigee.
  • Integrates well with other platforms we use.

Stoplight

  • OAI code. StopLight is a great tool to use if you use Swagger for testing your endpoints.
  • Sharing API's. StopLight makes it easy for us to share our API's internally with other teams.
  • Tech support. StopLight's dev team responds quickly and helpfully to tech questions and there's plenty of forum support to boot.

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.

Stoplight

  • 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.

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.

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.

Somewhere in the middle. Based on its current offerings and subscription model

Stoplight

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.

Return on Investment

Apigee Edge

  • Unruly, difficult to maintain, unable to test, difficult to troubleshoot and debug. Every ticket that requires Apigee work increases stress and anxiety.

Stoplight

  • Increased efficiency
  • Improved API reliability
  • Easier testing
