Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Apigee provides out-of-the-box policies, so it is ready to use with minimal configuration to those policies. You can govern your API and manage the life cycle of the API completely with the Apigee tool.""Apigee gives you plenty of opportunities to set up your workspace depending on how you want to manage your APIs.""The pricing is okay.""The analytics function and the developer portal are the two valuable features of Apigee. The analytics part is very good, and the developer portal is quite rich in features.""I like implementing different policies, for example, rate-limiting policy.""The flexibility allows you to quickly run a cloud-native application architecture.""Apigee is a strong-featured solution. It leads in Gartner Quadrant ratings and it is a full-slated API solution that has the features that an API gateway requires.""The developer portal is very useful to customers."

"The user-interface is very good.""The variables part is good. We can easily define the variables and we don't have to manually do a change every time, it gets automatically updated.""With Postman you can do automation. Automation has increased efficiency by more than 30% or 40%. Because the speed has increased, it's also possible for us to do in-sprint automation testing.""We can also submit requests multiple times and it allows us to capture the response each time by using utility scripts.""The interface and the different types of API methods you can use are the most valuable aspects of this solution.""Postman allows you to incorporate and export the test cases we create. It enables me to share the test cases with my colleagues, so I don't have to copy them into an Excel sheet. Postman lets me export the dataset and share it with my team. They can use my test case for their testing.""It is nice to have different workspaces. You have your personal workspace, and then you have a team workspace. In general, I like its UI. It is quite cool.""No coding required."

Cons
"iPaaS is something that we would like to see. For example, MuleSoft is kind of an integrated platform as a service (iPaaS), and it provides a lot of out-of-the-box connectors and other such things. This is where Apigee lacks. I'm not sure if that's the roadmap for Apigee, but any improvements on those lines would be helpful where things become easier to implement.""What my clients don't like is that the on-premises solution is not being treated and maintained as well as the cloud solution.""In terms of the functionalities of a typical API gateway, Apigee is actually doing its job, but when it involves integration with backend applications, which some gateways have, I don't believe it has this functionality. You have to do Java or do some other low-level coding before you are able to do the integration. Apigee has a lot of components, which means that management will be a bit difficult. It probably has ten different components, and all of these components leverage open-source utilities, such as NGINX. When those open-source vendors upgrade their utility, Apigee usually lags behind because they need to do a lot of tests and any required development in their own platform. They need to do rigorous testing to make sure that nothing breaks. Because of that, it takes them a while to upgrade whatever components have been upgraded by the open-source vendor that owns the utility. We've been chasing them for a particular upgrade for well over a year and a half, and they have not done that upgrade. It is creating a security risk for us as an enterprise, but that upgrade has not been done, even though the open-source vendor, the owner of the utility, has upgraded it a long time ago.""Could be more user friendly.""Apigee could do more to make users aware of what is available in the add-ons.""The integration could be improved within the solution. There is a need to pay more attention to this.""Access restrictions can be improved.""The developer portal's adoption of the OpenAPI standard needs to be improved. In the latest version of the developer portal, they have adopted the OpenAPI standard. This feature, however, can be improved by supporting more characteristics of the OpenAPI standard."

"The solution is quite complex partly because the UI needs simplification.""The pricing should be adjusted for the Pro plan.""The request encryption could be one thing on which they can work a little bit. If we don't want to expose our production data but we still want to test our APIs on the production data, there should be a way to do that. It is not only with Postman. I think no tool in the market is doing that right now.""To get this email reporting function, we have to integrate Postman with Newman. If the two are not integrated, we won't be getting all these things in one group.""If we have a certain build on one machine it won't work with another build even if we are using the same URL. It would give us a connection refuse. So developing environment compatibility would make it better.""An area that needs some improvement would be to allow multiple windows with different collections to be open at the same time.""I have recently noticed that, for some reason, I am not able to import collections in JSON. It is weird because I was able to do it before. When you create a new collection and documentation, in tests, you usually have to click Save. If you don't click Save, your collections don't sync with other devices, which is something I don't like. It is not clear for the users in a shared workspace, and I usually forget to click Save and end up losing all the collections that I created. I create a lot of routes, and clicking Save all the time isn't efficient. Instead of clicking Save all the time, there should be an option to save everything in one go.""Testing API is pretty straightforward in Postman, but it falls short when testing web services. For example, when we test web services, there is a visual component that we can import in SoapUI but not in Postman."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive.""The price of Apigee could be less expensive. The solution can be purchased monthly or annually.""It is a bit on the expensive side. Its licensing cost is a bit high, and that's where we've seen people going back on their decisions.""The cost increases as the usage increases.""Apigee is slightly expensive, but again, it can depend on the type of usage. All things considered, it is slightly expensive.""If the budget is not a concern then I will choose to go with Apigee over WSA-2, but if it is then I would prefer the latter solution.""The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made.""We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."

"Its price is moderate as compared to other competitors. The version that we are using is not open source, so it is not free.""We are using the free version that is available."
