3scale API Management Room for Improvement
Co-Founder at a tech vendor with 1-10 employees
We tried to use the portal, but we decided that it wasn't enough. The content management system (CMS) is not easy to use if you want to customize things, and it's hard to get someone who has the knowledge to work with the CMS. The CMS is not good because it's hard to see what's about to be released. Also, you can't test the whole thing at one stage, rather you have to update different fragments of the content, and there's no way to look at the whole picture before you release it. You can end up limbo with some of the content in development, so we decided to build our own portal.
Also, the use of Liquid scripts is not that nice. It does its job, but it hasn't been well documented and it has cost us quite a lot of hours just to understand how to do things. When you do understand how to do them, it's quite easy, but it hasn't been well documented.View full review »
