      I don't know why there is no cheaper alternative, does it make sense to pay about $1k for team of 10 !!!

    Automatically generate (read single command) API clients (in different languages) and documentation from code. I tried it to generate Java Client for Test Automation on REST APIs written in Java Spring MVC. Compared to Postman, it doesn't require you to add any end point manually. It will go through your code and do that job for you.

    If you're doing mobile app development that interacts with external (or your own) APIs, Charles is an absolute must. You can see every outgoing API call and debug it.

    Publish any process as a web service. Shape, combine and transform data from backend databases, legacy systems and applications. Expose data end-points as an API to retrieve, create, update, or delete data as part of an automated backend process.
