API Updates for December 21, 2023

API

  • The Webhooks Overview article now provides best practices for working with webhook responses. Use these response requirements to ensure the webhook delivery is successful. 

  • Excited to announce that authorized users can now create API Keys or install apps like store owners. See the Single-Click App OAuth Flow article for details.

  • Added the shipping_provider_display_name field to Orders V2 API. Now, you can expose a friendly human-readable name for the provider instead of the provider code.

Bug Fix

  • Fixed a bug related to the category image URL length for the v3/catalog/trees/categories endpoint, allowing the img_url to contain a full path instead of a short one. The img_url is now consistent with the existing categories API and documented format.
