In the Canvas REST API documentation, I've found that these two entries seem to be identical:
Are they really two entries that do the same thing? Does one refer to the other? Is one of them deprecated?
I am about the farthest someone can be from an API expert but I would think that if one of them had been deprecated there would be a call out to that in the documentation. I would assume that since they are listed together it's just two different ways of making the same call. I would think the logic behind them would be the same.
