IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

webMethods API Gateway Valuable Features

Rully Feranata - PeerSpot reviewer

webMethods API Gateway gives us a set of rules and good security for securing outside work to connect with our services. It has good minimum security measurements built-in. However, webMethods API Gateway itself has very minimum API governance. You need to have a central site in place to have full-fledged governance, which is one of their modules.

The solution provides a fully customizable portal that has built-in testing and collaboration capabilities. Because it is similar with other well-known products in the market, the process doesn't have specific requirements. We do have a good adoption rate. We only have two weeks of learning and customizing the behavior to developers. By the third week, every developer can actually develop by themselves.

The two most important features are the lifecycle and the protection of your APIs.

On the topic of protecting your APIs, every API management solution has that, which is the core business. Without it, you don't have an API gateway and it's the basic setup that every API management solution needs. Of course, protecting your APIs is very important.

With respect to the lifecycle, it is helpful because, in our business, we find it important to have an overview of all of our APIs and to guide our different roles, including architects and solution developers, in the necessary work for delivering a web service. Depending on the type of service, we also want to govern the quality. We don't do it for all APIs but for some categories, we find it very important that the quality is at a high level. This means that we want to govern that and to review it.

In these aspects, this solution helps us.

On the API gateway, I would say the runtime metrics that the gateway collects are definitely useful.

The product provides a lot of insights into the operations of the API itself at runtime.

The cloud version of the solution is very easy to set up.

The stability has been good. The performance is strong.

The scalability is excellent overall.

We have found the technical support to be very helpful and responsive when we have questions.

In the API gateway, there is a new feature that allows us to filter logs within a payload. This has been a useful feature.
