Overall Satisfaction with Apigee

We are using Apigee across our organization for designing APIs. It helps us to segregate the quota based allocation to our consumers and has inbuilt features like OAuth based authentication. The console and the easy way to use a policy in Apigee are also great.
  • 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.
  • Apigee should allow you to trace the APIs for a longer duration. Currently, it does not trace more than 20 API calls and it is difficult to trace a particular scenario in production where the volume would be in millions.
  • Apigee should include cloud provider integration which would help many users to easily include several tools with it.
  • Java script debugging is very hard in current console and dose not include any tracing and console logs. This could be improved.
  • Easily spin up a new proxy has helped in setting up a proxy for new products right away in days.
  • Analytics and reports generation in Apigee has helped understand the business better and helped tuned the cost factor.
  • Apigee could get better with the cost factor.
  • Amazon API
Amazon API's gateway does not have easy to set up policies and exception handling. It does not have a tracking mechanism. However, it is better to use AWS API's gateway if you have tight integration with AWS tools.
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.
