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.

SwaggerHub

If you have a huge amount of API endpoint and a lot of team members, SwaggerHub will be really good for you and your team. Communication about changes will be much easier and everyone will comply with the changes without any further communication just by reading the documentation. If you are just starting to make an API based application on your own, you might not need it since it could be overkill.

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.

SwaggerHub

  • Helps in defining the API contracts by simple YAML file definitions
  • REST service/API documentation is hassle free
  • Auto-generated code capability helps in reducing the efforts to define clients

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.

SwaggerHub

  • Would be good to have better integration with third-party software e.g. AWS Lambda, Postman, etc. for automatic testing.
  • I would like to see the documentation to be able to convert to another format e.g. MD file, wiki pages, etc.
  • We are using RESTful APIs from SOAP, so would be good if we could transform SOAP designed API to RESTful API.

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

SwaggerHub wins hands down when it comes to RESTFul services/APIs. It's more user friendly, simpler, and can be part of the application library. SoapUI is only better for SOAP or web services.

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.
Tim Gragg | TrustRadius Reviewer

SwaggerHub

  • Faster API development lifecycle.
  • Reduced discussion time when building a new vital API endpoint.
  • Complete documentation which makes the new team member onboarding process easier.
