Deprecated features and functionalities
Gateway Manager profilePrior to WSO2 API Manager 2.1.0, the Publisher and Gateway were required to be on two different cluster domains. However, from WSO2 API Manager 2.1.0 onward clustering is no longer a necessity, because the Publisher can play the role of the Gateway Manager. Therefore, now, the Gateway Manager profile (
-Dprofile=gateway-manager)has been deprecated as it is redundant.
When using the
-DSetupoption to create tables related to external databases automatically during server startup, the consent management component fails to get activated due to missing tables. Therefore, this feature has been deprecated.
Analyzing Logs with the Log Analyzer is deprecated from this release onwards and is disabled by default.
