Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

Well suited for publishing internal services with very high security, protecting against attacks, and managing on-demand load. Also good for transform messages and SQL to Rest services.Not appropriate for business logic implementation.

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.

Cons

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

  • It would be nice to have an integration with services like Github for managing projects and versions.
Leonardo Villa | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

The Layer7 API Management is a great solution, but, sometimes the documentation is not clear or has lack of examples.

The support team is good and the response time is reasonable, but (there is always a but), when support inquiries are made by someone experienced, and the question is not trivial, it is boring and takes a long time to get the case escalated to the next level of support.

Alternatives Considered

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

We evaluated 3 tools and decided on Layer7 API Management because it had the shortest implementation times and fastest learning curve, without losing power of customization and scalability.
Leonardo Villa | TrustRadius Reviewer

SwaggerHub

SwaggerHub is the best for what it can do in terms of API management and monitoring, compared to Postman, which is more like tools for everything (testing, monitoring, mock request, etc.). If you are overwhelmed with the number of API endpoints that you have and are finding it hard to document and manage its lifecycle with your team, SwaggerHub is the best choice for you.
