ReadyAPI and SwaggerHub are a match made in heaven. Being able to so easily import the API directly into ReadyAPI and then being able to generate a test suite from the API is my favorite part of these softwares. We have rather large services so building out the API can take some time
Read full review Pros API Manager allows for REST and SOAP API's to be easily created and tracked API Manager allows for only certain people/applications to use the API (does this thru a subscriber service it provides) It also publishes the API's it is tracking so developers can easily know what interfaces already exist. The monitoring ability is a nice feature. The admin person can easily see how and where the APIs are currently being used Read full review Treating the design as documentation ensures that we have consistent and well defined APIs API consumers can export the swagger definition or code stubs to use within their development environment We can iterate through multiple versions of a definition privately before making a version publicly available Read full review Cons Absence of Role-Based Access. A finer grain control on what type of users can call certain API Endpoints is needed. Performance with third-party databases isn't as fast as using Oracle Database. Long learning curve. Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, a certain level of expertise is required to effectively make use of them. Read full review The user interface could be more improved to sustain with other similar tools in the market. Beneficial if we have better integration with third party softwares. Nice to have ability to download the documentation in usable formats. Read full review Alternatives Considered

The only other product we looked at was
. But we liked the SwaggerHub UI & the integrations it has with the AWS API gateway. Though
has some other great features like the ability to write test cases & execute them, SwaggerUI was more convenient to document & share them.
Read full review Return on Investment Oracle API Manager supports both REST & SOAP API's. Secure and attributable connection to back-end services and data sources. In addition to creating API's for querying data, you can also create API endpoints that can manipulate the data in the back-end databases. Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, to start with it is really important you train your people working on development, deployment and administrators to effectively use Oracle API Manager.
