Products

Products are the sellable goods in an e-commerce project on the commercetools platform.

Representations

Product

The full representation of a product combines the current and staged representations in a single representation.

ProductCatalogData

  • published - Boolean
    Whether the product is published.
  • current - ProductData
    The current data of the product.
  • staged - ProductData
    The staged data of the product.
  • hasStagedChanges - Boolean
    Whether the staged data is different from the current data.

ProductData

ProductVariant

  • id - Number
    The sequential ID of the variant within the product.
  • sku - String - Optional
    The unique SKU of the variant.
  • key - String - Optional
    User-specific unique identifier for the variant. Product variant keys are different from product keys.
  • prices - Array of Price - Optional
    The prices of the variant. The prices does not contain two prices for the same price scope (same currency, country, customer group and channel).
  • attributes - Array of Attribute - Optional
  • price - Price - Optional
    Only appears when price selection is used. This field cannot be used in a query predicate.
  • images - Array of Image - Optional
  • assets - Array of Asset - Optional
  • availability - ProductVariantAvailability - Optional
    The availability is set if the variant is tracked by the inventory. The field might not contain the latest inventory state (it is eventually consistent) and can be used as an optimization to reduce calls to the inventory service.
  • isMatchingVariant - Boolean - Optional
    Only appears in response to a Product Projection Search request to mark this variant as one that matches the search query.
  • scopedPrice - ScopedPrice - Optional
    Only appears when price selection is used.
  • scopedPriceDiscounted - Boolean - Optional
    Only appears in response to a Product Projection Search request when price selection is used.

ProductVariantAvailability

  • isOnStock - Boolean - Optional
  • restockableInDays - Number - Optional
    The number of days it takes to restock a product once it is out of stock.
  • availableQuantity - Number - Optional
    The number of items of this product variant that are currently available in stock
    isOnStock, restockableInDays and quantityOnStock are based on the Inventory Entry with no supply channel for this variant.
  • channels - Map of ProductVariantAvailability per Channel id - Optional
    For each Inventory Entries with a supply channel, an entry is added into channels:
    • the key is the Channel id
    • the value is an object containing the data isOnStock, restockableInDays and availableQuantity for the Inventory Entry with the supply channel for this variant.

Price

PriceTier

A price tier is selected instead of the default price when a certain quantity of the ProductVariant is added to a cart and ordered.
For example: the price can be lower if more than 10 items are ordered.
If no price tier is found for the order quantity, the base Price is used.
A price tier is applied for the entire quantity of a product variant put as LineItem in a cart as soon as the minimum quantity for the price tier is reached.
The price tier is applied per line item of the product variant. If, for example, the same product variant appears in the same cart as several line items, (what can be achieved by different values of a custom field on the line items) for each line item the minimum quantity must be reached to get the price tier.

  • minimumQuantity - Number
    The minimum quantity this price tier is valid for.
    The minimum quantity is always greater than or equal to 2 (the base Price is interpreted as valid for minimum quantity equals to 1).
  • value - BaseMoney
    The currency of a price tier is always the same as the currency of the base Price.

DiscountedPrice

ScopedPrice

Scoped price is returned as a part of a variant in product search (when price selector is used).

    The AttributeType determines the format for the attribute value to be provided, in particular:

PriceDraft

  • value - BaseMoney - Required

    A two-digit country code as per ↗ ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 . If not set, the price is valid for any country.
  • customerGroup - Reference to a CustomerGroup - Optional
    A reference to a customer group.

  • custom - CustomFieldsDraft - Optional
    The custom fields.

Price Selection

The cart addLineItem update action selects a price from the product’s prices array based on the currency, country, customer group, channel and a date. The product-related endpoints also provide the same price selection logic to help the shop to show the right price to the customer.

If the price selection parameter priceCurrency and any of the price selection parameters priceCountry, priceCustomerGroup and priceChannel are given as query parameter and a matching price exists, a price field containing the matching price is added to the ProductVariant of the returned product projections.

Attribute

Category Order Hints

Products can have a category order hint for each category they are assigned to. This allows controlling the order of products and how they appear in categories.

The category order hints is a JSON object where the keys are the category IDs, and the values are the corresponding order hint set for that category.

Order hints are strings representing valid number values between 0 and 1 while everything closer to 1 is interpreted as higher than everything closer to 0. Order hints thus always start with “0.” and must never end with a “0” (i.e., always write “0.1” but never “0.10”). Products that have no order hint have an order score below “0”.

Order hints are non-unique. If a subset of products have the same value for order hint in a specific category, the behavior is undetermined.

Images

A product image can be uploaded using the image upload endpoint, or via the ↗ Admin Center EU (or ↗ Admin Center US ). An Image uploaded to the commercetools platform is stored in a Content Delivery Network and it’s available in several pre-defined sizes.

If you already have an image stored on an external service you can simply save the URL when creating a new product or adding a variant, or you can add it later. An image is represented in the following way:

  • url - String
    URL of the image in its original size. The URL must be unique within a single variant. It can be used to obtain the image in different sizes - see below.
  • dimensions - {"w": Number, "h": Number}
    Dimensions of the original image. This can be used by your application e.g. to determine whether the image is large enough to display a zoom view.
  • label - String - Optional
    Custom label that can be used, for example, as an image description.

Images in specific sizes are obtained by appending a size suffix to the original URL (before the .jpg, .png etc. extension part of the file name):

Note that images will never be scaled up. If the original image is tiny, it will keep its original size, even in the “large” and “zoom” sizes.

Also note that images are not shared between variants - each variant has its own set of images. However, if you wish to have many variants with the same set of images, you can implement this in your application by always showing the images of the master variant, regardless of the selected variant.

SearchKeywords

Search keywords are primarily used by the suggester, but are also considered for the full text search. SearchKeywords is a JSON object where the keys are of ↗ IETF language tag . The value to a language tag key is an array of SearchKeyword for the specific language.

{
"en": [{"text": "Multi tool"}, {"text": "Swiss Army Knife", "suggestTokenizer": {"type": "whitespace"}}],
"de": [{"text": "Schweizer Messer", "suggestTokenizer": {"type": "custom", "inputs": ["schweizer messer", "offiziersmesser", "sackmesser"]}}]
}

SearchKeyword

  • text - String
    Text to return in the result of a suggest query.
  • suggestTokenizer - SuggestTokenizer - Optional
    If no tokenizer is defined, the text is used as as single token.

SuggestTokenizer

The tokenizer defines the tokens that are used to match against the suggest query input.

Whitespace Tokenizer

Whitespace tokenizer creates tokens by splitting the SearchKeyword text field by whitespaces.

  • type - whitespace
Custom Tokenizer

Custom tokenizer allows to define arbitrary tokens which are used to match the input.

  • type - custom
  • inputs - Array of String
    Contains custom tokens

Specific Error Codes:

Update Actions

Set Key

  • action - String - "setKey"
  • key - String - Optional
    User-specific unique identifier for the product.
    If left blank or set to null, the product key is unset/removed.

    Every slug must be unique across a project, but a product can have the same slug for different languages. Allowed are alphabetic, numeric, underscore (_) and hyphen (-) characters. Maximum size is 256.
  • staged - Boolean - Optional (Defaults to true)

Changing the slug produces the ProductSlugChanged message.

Add ProductVariant

  • action - String - "addVariant"
  • sku - String - Optional
    SKU must be unique.
  • key - String - Optional
    User-specific unique identifier for the variant.
  • prices - Array of Price - Optional. A maximum number of 700 prices can be specified on a ProductVariant.
  • images - Array of Image - Optional
    External images for the new variant. You can also upload images to use the commercetools platform’s Content Delivery Network.
  • attributes - Array of Object - Optional
    The custom attributes of the master variant. Each attribute is a JSON object where a field name corresponds to the name of a product attribute defined on the referenced ProductType and the value being a valid JSON value for that attribute.
  • staged - Boolean - Optional (Defaults to true)

Remove ProductVariant

  • action - String - "removeVariant"
  • id - Number or sku - String - Required
  • staged - Boolean - Optional (Defaults to true)

Removing a product variant produces the ProductVariantDeleted message.

Add Price

Adds the given price to the product variant’s prices set.
Prices are defined with a scope (currency and optionally country, CustomerGroup and Channel and/or a validity period (validFrom and/or validTo).
For more information see price selection.
Adding a price is rejected:

  • if the product already contains a price with the same price scope (same currency, country, customer group and channel).
  • if two prices have validity periods that overlap within the same price scope. A price without validity period does not conflict with a price defined for a time period.

A maximum number of 700 prices can be specified on a ProductVariant.

To keep the number of prices per Product Variant low, make use of the price selection fallback logic. For example, you can define a single price for all countries using the EUR currency instead of defining prices for the individual country attributes. Similarly, you can define a price without a channel attribute to use as a base price across channels, and create additional prices with a channel attribute for specific channels that differ from the base price.

  • variantId - Number or sku - String - Required
  • price - PriceDraft - Required
  • staged - Boolean - Optional (Defaults to true)

Publish with scope “Prices”

Publishes only the product prices.
Publishing the prices is only possible if the product is currently published.
All prices found on variants in the staged projection are published into variants found in the current projection with the same id.
Prices found on a staged variant that has no current projection are not published.
Prices found on a current variant that has no staged projection are unchanged.
The flag hasStagedChanges is updated according to whether the staged and the current projections still differ after the prices publishing.

Unpublish

Unpublishes a product, effectively deleting the current projection of the product, leaving only the staged projection.

  • state - Reference to a State
  • force - Boolean - Optional - Defaults to false

Transitioning the state of a product produces the ProductStateTransition message.

Upload a product image

Uploads a binary image file to a given product variant. The supported image formats are JPEG, PNG and GIF.

Endpoint: /{projectKey}/products/{id}/images
Method: POST
OAuth2 Scopes: manage_products:{projectKey}
Response Representation: Product

Headers:

  • Content-Type - one of "image/jpeg", "image/png" or "image/gif".

Query Parameters:

  • variant - Number or sku - String - Optional
    The variant to which the image should be added. Defaults to the master variant if neither is given.
  • filename - String - Optional (Defaults to "img")
    Name under which the image should be stored in the Content Delivery Network. The name doesn’t need to be unique - see below.
  • staged - Boolean - Optional (Defaults to true)
    Whether to update the staged or current projection of the product.

Body: The raw binary data.

An example using curl:

curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: image/jpeg" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer {token}" \
--upload-file "detail.jpg" \
"https://api.sphere.io/{projectKey}/products/{id}/images?variant=2&filename=detail.jpg"

This adds an Image to the variant with id = 2, in the staged projection of the product.

Since the parameter filename=detail.jpg was specified, the URL of the uploaded image will be e.g. https://{sphere-cdn}/detail-6xAq4Efp.jpg. If you don’t specify a custom filename a random one will be chosen.

The uploaded image is available in several sizes.

Note that a 200 OK response with a Product is returned as soon as the Small version of the image has been uploaded to the CDN. The other sizes might not be available immediately after a response is returned but only after a short delay.

Note that file upload using ↗ Content-Type: multipart/form-data is currently not supported.

Uploading an image produces the ProductImageAdded message. The message will be produced as soon as the Small version of the image has been uploaded to the CDN.

Delete Product

In order to be able to delete a product this has to be unpublished upfront.

If price selection query parameters are provided, the selected prices will be added to the response.

Deleting a product produces the ProductDeleted message.
