API Management FAQ
What is the difference between API Management and the Native API Manager?
API Management covers all aspects of managing APIs, from creation to testing, deployment, versioning, and sharing it with API consumers. The API Manager console enables you to define and create an API through importing a Swagger specification. You can also create versions and add permissions and policies at the Org/APIM, API, and version levels.
Can I still use the Native API Manager to publish Ultra and Triggered Tasks to the existing Developer Portal?
Yes. However, the Native API Manager will be deprecated in the August 2021 and replaced by the API Portal Manager, which will be added to the API Management section of the SnapLogic Manager.
How do I enable the API Management Design First feature for the 4.25 release?
In the 4.25 release (May 2021), your Org must have the following subscription features:
- API Management feature to access the Design First features, the API Policy Manager, and the API Dashboard.

Is the Native API Manager Developer Portal feature supported in the new API Management Design First feature?
