Update Item Put API - Using category ID & category

gchavezgchavez Member Posts: 4

I am looking to update an item through the PUT API, and see there are two attributes for category. The Category ID attribute is a string and the Category attribute is an object. I would like to use the object based category attribute since my items include sub-categories.

Does anyone have documentation or an example of how to format the category attribute? I wasn't able to find this information on their API page (https://developers.lightspeedhq.com/retail/endpoints/Item/#put-update-an-item) or anywhere else on the website.

In addition, do you need the category id's for this, or can you use the title/name of the category/sub-category for the API call?

    Looking at the API docs, the CategoryID appears to be listed for this particular endpoint. Are you sure you can't put pass along a different CategoryID value in your PUT request and see the change? The CategoryID associated with an item will display the text string in the web UI I'm assuming.
