Apigee

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.

How much data needs to be processed? How many systems are being integrated? And what different types of data sources do you have?

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.

  • Can integrate multiple sources: REST, SOAP, RDBM.
  • Cloud based so always easy to maintain.
  • Training new resources is always easy.
  • Easy to use UI which lets you create orchestrations nicely.

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.

  • Debugging/loggin can be improved.
  • Cache components were not very friendly.

Alternatives Considered

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

Return on Investment

  • Unruly, difficult to maintain, unable to test, difficult to troubleshoot and debug. Every ticket that requires Apigee work increases stress and anxiety.
Tim Gragg profile photo
  • It would have not been possible to run our application with out integration, and Dell Boomi API Management served the purpose.
  • Not as effective while communicating with SOAP as it is in the case of Rest or SQL.
