"Currently, I'm not facing any issues with Amazon API Gateway, which satisfies my requirements. I'm pretty happy with what Amazon API Gateway offers, but as its pricing is on the higher side, that's one area for improvement in the solution. What I'd like to see in the next release of Amazon API Gateway is an improvement in the status checks you get from the monitoring feature of the solution. Currently, you get the number of requests received, the number of reports, etc., but if there are more details than what's given by Amazon API Gateway, that will improve the solution.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support.""The integration could be improved.""Amazon API Gateway can improve the user interface in some areas it could be more polished.""Monitoring could be improved.""We would like to see more UI-based monitoring.""The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface.""The user interface could be improved, as well as customer support and having a local customer representative in a country."
