Expose your database with an API
Comments: We implemented Dreamfactory to integrate Salesforce with an ERP software that didn't have an API, constrained by a limited budget which didn't allow us to go for a more complex middleware. The solution allowed us to quickly send and retrieve records from the ERP, and run processes using SQL stored procedures which gave us a bit of a headache at the beginning because of lack of full support.
Authentication and API is out-of-the-box
The free version includes many features
It saves a lot of time if you just want to use the basic REST API features
Upgrading to a new version can be a massive pain
Debugging problems is very difficult if not impossible sometimes
Stored procedures are not fully supported
The API options to query a database are not as powerful as the options a SQL language provides

Hi, thank you for your review - DreamFactory does support stored procedures, it is just not meant for managing the stored procedures and functions themselves. For a more sophisticated project requirements we also support custom business logic via our powerful scripting engine that supports four different languages (PHP, NodeJS, Python, and V8JS).

Useful but hard to use
Pros: I liked the concept of the product. And it is good at what it does.
1. Nested Object filter for database tables apis is hard. more often we had to write custom code to implement.
2. Alternate authentication setup is hard. we tried adding alternate authentication and failed, Also connected with customer support and still failed to add customer authencation.
3. Installation steps do fail to setup it smoothly i got into a lot of issues even after following exact steps for installation on ubuntu16

Dreamfactory API Use
Comments: It allowed us to quickly develop a API for use for one of our sites, giving us better visibility of everything going on, and at different levels of operation.
Pros: Was easy to setup, and is quick to increase the functionality of the API. Has a very understandable Roles and services, which allows for great control on what people can do. Also had a few sessions with some of the team, and they are very knowledgeable and supportive.
Cons: It was easy to expand the system with clones (for example, a dev, stage, production, client specific access). Once you setup all the roles and services for one account, you couldn't easily clone this but pointing to different credentials. Only work around I found was doing it all the DB, but you would have to figure out what means what, as everything is stored as IDs, so not easy to understand.

Thank you for this detailed review. With regards to replicating your DreamFactory environment across multiple instances we have an Import/Export feature. This feature allows you to package up everything from your Services, Roles, and much more to be imported into a fresh instance without frustration.

Great platform, well done!
Comments: Overall a great product that will assist you to speed up your development process!
Pros: Great Security and very complete and user friendly documentation. Example apps get your going quick!
Cons: I cant think of anything not to like. In the beginning it might be a little overwhelming, but once you have read the documentation and looked at the samples apps, you on your way.
