"Parse API definitions" not included in built-in scan configs for BSE (V2020.11)

I'm running v2020.11 for Enterprise and Burp Scanner. I cannot find the "Parse API definitions" settings under Miscellaneous section of the built-in scan config templates. Please advise next steps.

Hi, The API scanning functionality was switched on and working behind the scenes when this was initially released for Burp Enterprise - the setting to toggle this and on and off within the scan configuration settings was not, however, available initially. We did, however, add this to the scan configuration settings in later versions of Burp Enterprise. To view this setting you would need to upgrade the version of Burp Enterprise that you are using. It is worth noting that the ability to scan APIs was working and enabled in the initial versions - there was just no visual indication that this was the case.
