  • Hosting REST APIs that follow HIPPA guidelines and regulations.
  • It provides mock responses that help keep check of the automation scenario and reality.
  • It is easy to use and can be customized as per requirements.
  • The service and support are mediocre at best.
  • It is very hard to debug when something in the code is incorrect..
  • Various programming languages are missing.

  • Swagger integration
  • Rate limiting
  • API key management
  • Lambda Integration
  • Testing and rapid development
  • Client certificates are troublesome when trying to attach them to API GW stages.
  • Debugging across several services can be difficult when API GW is integrated with Route 53 and another service like Lambda or EC2/ELB.
  • Creating internal/private APIs, particularly with custom domains, can be unintuitive.

  • Amazon API Gateway is helping us a great deal as we put a lot of the administration efforts within the gateway itself instead of our code.
  • Very easy to create different environment set ups like dev, test and UAT.
  • Easy to change headers without much work from the developers.
  • Helps in avoiding misuse of our APIs.
  • The interface is a little complicated to use. It needs some training.
  • If there are any errors with the configurations, it would not allow to save.

  • The security provided by API Gateway is very good.
  • It's very easy to implement event-based architectures.
  • Very fast deployment, and you are good to go in minutes.
  • The export features, such as Postman collection or the Swagger extension, are awesome.
  • I think there should be another way of enabling CORS. It basically creates OPTIONS for every endpoint, which makes your API Gateway look complicated.
  • The integration timeout limit is 30 seconds, which limits you into that time.
  • API Gateway UI should be improved and should work correctly when more than two people are adding/editing endpoints.

  • Support for multiple stages/environments.
  • Great settings for configuring routing, caching, and CORS.
  • Integrates well with other AWS services.
  • Granting permissions for accessing Lambda functions using stage variables needs to be improved.
  • Reminders to deploy the API after changes have been made would be helpful.

  • Amazon API Gateway has a robust security infrastructure and provides great documentation and online help.
  • Provides an easy way to implement REST API with Serverless architecture as well as account for service versioning.
  • The initial learning curve with such technologies can be quite daunting. However, there is sufficient documentation available on Amazon AWS services to get one started.
  • Redeployment of the entire stage and step functions is necessary to test out any changes, no matter how minor.

  • API Gateway integrates well with AWS Lambda. This allows us to build a web server in the language and framework of our choice, deploy it as a Lambda function, and expose it through API Gateway.
  • API Gateway manages API keys. Building rate limiting and request quota features are not trivial (or interesting).
  • API Gateway's pricing can be very attractive for services that are accessed infrequently.
  • API Gateway introduces some concepts, such as Stages and Integration Requests, that are foreign to most developers. The documentation hints in the Console help, but sometimes these concepts are not transferred to frameworks like Serverless.
  • Systems that use API Gateway may behave differently in end-to-end tests in local or CI environments.
  • Navigating the Console can be confusing.
  • It could be easier to codify API Gateway configurations.
