18.10.10 - Apigee Edge for Public Cloud release notes (UI)

On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, we began releasing a new cloud version of Apigee Edge for Public Cloud.

New features and enhancements

This section describes the new features and enhancements in this release.

General availability of API Monitoring

Apigee API Monitoring helps operations teams increase API availability for application developers, customers, and partners. Apigee API Monitoring works in conjunction with Apigee Edge Cloud to provide real-time contextual insights into API performance, helps quickly diagnose issues, and facilitates remedial actions for business continuity. For more about API Monitoring, see Introduction to API Monitoring.

On Thursday, October 25, we added support for the Latency dashboard. The Latency dashboard displays latency information for the API proxies and target services in your organization. You can investigate latency metrics for a one hour winow at any time in the past 30 days.

On Monday, October 29, we added support for two built-in roles, API Monitoring Administrator and API Monitoring User, that define the permissions required to access API monitoring only. See Access API monitoring for more.

General availability of the Hosted Targets feature

With Hosted Targets, you can host your Node.js APIs on Apigee Edge. Hosted Targets lets you deploy Node.js applications in a native, secure, scalable, and isolated environment where Edge API proxies can call them as target services. For more about Hosted Targets, see Hosted Targets overview.

General availability of the Extensions feature

With the Extensions feature, developers can build API proxies that consume a cloud service or SaaS application. The feature includes extensions for Google Cloud Firestore, Google Cloud Pub/Sub, Google Cloud Storage, and others. Extensions abstract away the complexity represented by considerations for security, data formats, request/response transformation, and wire protocols in interacting with external systems. For more about Extensions, see What are extensions?
