Tableau snaps vs Tableau APIs

Hi

What features do Tableau snaps have but are not provided by Tableau API?

Thanks
Han

The Tableau Snap supports Rest APIs till the Tableau 10.5 ((REST API 2.8) version, as of the May Release:
https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/v10.5/api/rest_api/en-us/help.htm#REST/rest_api_ref.htm#API_Reference

Is there are any specific API that you are interested in?
Have you tried using the REST snap to execute the Tableau request?
