OrderImportDraft

An OrderImportDraft is a snapshot of an order at the time it was imported.

LineItemImportDraft

A line item import draft is a snapshot of a product variant at the time it was imported with the order.

CustomLineItemImportDraft

ProductVariantImportDraft

  • id - Number - Optional
    The sequential ID of the variant within the product. The variant with provided ID should exist in some existing product, so you also need to specify the productId if this property is set, or alternatively you can just specify SKU of the product variant.

  • prices - Array of Price - Optional
    The prices of the variant. The prices should not contain two prices for the same price scope (same currency, country and customer group).

Language, Price, and InventoryEntry filtering BETA

Language filtering BETA

To remove excess information, LocalizedStrings can be filtered based on the languages configured in the Store that is specified via the OrderImportDraft's store field. If the store has languages set, then only localized values with the languages that are included in the store's languages are kept.

If no matching language is found on a LocalizedString for some of the languages specified in the Store, the next language specified in the languages of the Project is used as a fallback. This ensures that required fields do not remain empty in the Order.
If an empty value is found on a LocalizedString for some of the languages specified in the Store, the empty value will be imported for this language.

Price filtering BETA

To remove excess Prices, filtering is applied based on the distribution channels configured in the Store that is specified via the OrderImportDraft's store field.

If the store has distributionChannels set, then only the following Prices are kept:

  • Prices with distribution channels that are in the store's distributionChannels
  • Prices without distribution channels

InventoryEntry filtering BETA

To remove excess ProductVariantAvailabilities, filtering is applied based on the inventory supply channels configured in the Store that is specified via the OrderImportDraft's store field.

If the store has supplyChannels set, then only the following InventoryEntries are kept:

  • InventoryEntries with supply channels that are in the store's supplyChannels
  • InventoryEntry without supply channels

Create an Order by Import

Creates directly an Order by importing it instead of creating it from a Cart. Each LineItem is referencing some existing product variant. You have 3 ways to specify a product reference:

  • productId + variant.id - this field combination will unique identify the product. In this case variant.sku would be initialized automatically in the resulting order.
  • variant.sku - SKU can also unique identify the product. productId and variant.id would be filled automatically.
  • productId + variant.id + variant.sku - you can also provide all 3 fields. In this case SKU would be validated.
