There are some gaps, and it can be difficult to find the proper documentation for the product if you need to solve something.""WSO2 API Manager could improve the API approval system.""The initial setup can be difficult.""WSO2 API Manager can be improved a lot relating to usability""Lacks some new features and updated functionalities.""They are developing another platform called Choreo that allows you to create API itself using the WSO2 programming language Ballerina.
