Hi Shylaja! Long time, hope you are doing good.
Nice blog, gave me a good overview of the SAP API Business Hub.
Hi Shylaja S ,
thanks for the update/blog post. As pointed out by you, I placed my question on SAP Answers. Unfortunately I didn't get an answer yet, thus I'm trying to reach out to you and your colleagues via the comment section. My question (https://answers.sap.com/questions/13279759/api-specification-missing-in-api-hub-beta.html) is about the API specification download function. It seems like it was dropped in the beta. Is this a final descision or will the API spec download feature added again later?
Hi Raffael Herrman,
API Specification Download and other related functionalities of API will be available as part of the GA Release. We would request you to use the API Specification Download functionality in api.sap.com until the feature is available in an upcoming release.
Please let us know if there are any further queries in this regard.
Thank you Shylaja Sfor that great overview about the SAP API Business Hub.
