Create robust interfaces

Create robust interfaces

Design APIs with consistency using Apigee’s built-in best practices and ability to reuse policies. Apigee’s streamlined UI makes it easy for developers to create simple and intuitive URLs. Plus, robust interfaces result in APIs that are easy for app developers to consume.

Features

Out-of-the-box configurable policies

Modify and monitor API behavior using out-of-the-box policies. Augment your API with sophisticated features to control traffic, enhance performance, and enforce security. Increase the usefulness of your APIs without writing code or modifying any backend services.

Integrated OpenAPI editor and spec repository

Use open-source components to build production-grade APIs. Create an OpenAPI specification to define your API using the integrated editor. Generate an API proxy directly from the spec, create an API product and documentation, then immediately publish it to the developer portal.

API proxy editor

The API proxy editor in the management UI includes full XML views of API proxy configuration, search, and options for adding policies, endpoints, and scripts. The editor also includes support for SOAP passthrough messages and includes policies that handle RESTful calls to backend SOAP services.

Support for RESTful APIs

Don’t wrestle with legacy protocols. Use the API layer to transform them into RESTful, mobile-friendly APIs that securely expose existing data and services. Leverage existing frameworks and focus on developing APIs that app developers will want to use in their new systems of engagement.
