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.

TIBCO Cloud Mashery

Mashery is great when it comes to deployment to your own datacenter and when it comes to managing third party API's like Salesforce using Mashery Cloud version. I would be a little bit more careful when deploying it on Kubernetes as it was not designed for it. New version 5 is re-architected to run more on natively on Kubernetes, but we have not tested it yet.

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.

  • Easy integration of the TIBCO Cloud Mashery developer portal allows simple onboarding and user and application management.
  • Configuration of TIBCO Cloud Mashery is both flexible and focused to address the main tasks for an API Management solution.
  • The built-in OAuth Token capabilities provide a quick start to properly manage application access.

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.

  • Documentation.
  • Flexibility to modify the user interface.
  • More robust statistics without buying Spotfire as the software solution.

Alternatives Considered

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

Mashery was already installed when I took over the project. I have not worked extensively with other platforms.

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.

  • Too soon to tell since this capability has just recently been launched.
