New Features

Apigee provides an advanced set of operations and security features called Advanced API Ops available for Edge for Cloud Enterprise customers. Advanced API Ops adds enhanced security reporting to the Edge UI and APIs for accessing the data used by these reports.

Advanced API Ops includes anomaly detection which lets Edge detect traffic and performance issues instead of you having to predetermine them. Advanced API Ops adds new alert types that build on the API Monitoring alert mechanism.

The Advanced API Ops Beta is open to all Apigee Enterprise and Enterprise Plus cloud customers. When generally available, Advanced API Ops will be a paid add-on to Apigee’s Enterprise subscription and will be included as part of its Enterprise Plus subscription.

Anomaly detection added

With anomaly detection, you let Edge detect traffic and performance issues instead of having to predetermine them yourself. Edge automatically looks for anomaly conditions at the organization, environment, and region levels.

New alerts

This release adds new types of alerts:

  • Anomaly alerts. Edge detects traffic and performance issues instead of you having to predetermine them yourself. You can then raise an alert for these anomalies.
  • Traffic alerts. Lets you raise an alert when traffic changes by a specified percentage over a time range. For example, you can raise an alert when traffic increases by 5% or more for one hour, or decreases by 10% or more for one week.
  • Expiry alerts. Lets you raise a notification when a TLS cert is close to expiring.

The following new APIs have been added to support the new Beta features, including:
