Dev Portal and Vitals
As of this release, the product component known as Kong Enterprise Portal is no longer included in the Kong Gateway Enterprise (previously known as Kong Enterprise) software package.

If you have purchased Kong Enterprise Portal in the past and would like to continue to use it with this release or a future release of Kong Gateway Enterprise, contact Kong Support for more information.
In addition, the product component known as Vitals is deprecated and is no longer included in Kong Gateway Enterprise.
