Usage notes

POST V1/categories

When you create a category from Admin, you have the option to configure display and search engine optimization settings. To configure these settings using REST, you can specify the following parameters as attribute_code values:

all_children
children
children_count
custom_apply_to_products
custom_design
custom_design_from
custom_design_to
custom_layout_update
custom_use_parent_settings
default_sort_by
description
display_mode
filter_price_range
image
is_anchor
landing_page
meta_description
meta_keywords
meta_title
page_layout
path
path_in_store
url_key
url_path

Third-party modules may define other custom attributes.

The following example uses the POST V1/categories call to assign four custom attributes to the “My New Category” category.

{
"category": {
    "parent_id": 2,
    "name": "My New Category",
    "is_active": true,
    "level": 2,
    "include_in_menu": true,
    "custom_attributes":[
         {
            "attribute_code":"description",
            "value":"Women category description"
         },
         {
            "attribute_code":"meta_title",
            "value":"Women meta title"
         },
         {
            "attribute_code":"meta_keywords",
            "value":"Women meta keywords"
         },
         {
            "attribute_code":"meta_description",
            "value":"Women meta description"
         },
         {
            "attribute_code":"url_key",
            "value":"women-test-key"
         }
      ]
    }
}
