In API Connect, you can supersede a published product with another product by using the API Manager.
- When you supersede a product with another product, the following actions are taken:
- The superseding product is published.
- The same visibility, subscriber, and gateway enforcement settings from the original product are used for the superseding product.
- The original product is moved to the deprecated state. When a product is deprecated, application developers that are already subscribed to the product can continue to use it, but no new developers can subscribe to the product. If necessary, a deprecated product can be published again.
In this lab, you’ll verify which users are subscribed to a product. Then, you’ll update and supersede an API (product). Finally, you’ll migrate subscriptions to the new product.
