But this URL doesn't answer my queries.

Kindly go through my queries once and do let me know the possible solutions





Re: Magento2 Webervices Api

Hi Sherie,

I have few more questions related to Magento 2 Rest API's.
I want to use PUT, POST and DELETE methods in REST FUL API via URL something like this "http://localhost/magento2/rest/V1/products/MH01/ "
The GET method is working fine but I have no idea how to use the remaining methods.

I have one scenario to share with you. Kindly take a look at below details

<route url="/V1/products/:sku" method="PUT">
<service class="Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface" method="save" />
<resource ref="Magento_Catalog:Smiley Tongueroducts" />

<route url="/V1/products/:sku" method="DELETE">
<service class="Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface" method="deleteById"/>
<resource ref="Magento_Catalog:Smiley Tongueroducts" />

<route url="/V1/products/:sku" method="GET">
<service class="Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface" method="get"/>
<resource ref="anonymous" />

Here all the above routes are having same URL but different methods, If I fire the above mentioned URL in the browser the GET method route will work as the GET method is the default one but how to use PUT or POST by using the URL only.

Kindly reply me on this as this is very important. There are no such docs available explaining the use of PUT, POST and DELETE methods.


Re: Magento2 Webervices Api

Hi @devjyot sharma,


You do GET, POST, PUT, DELETE pretty much the same way with different data though. Here is an example for creating a product and retrieve it.


POST: /V1/products/

{"product" :
"sku": "simple1",
"name": "simple1",
"store_id": 1,
"attribute_set_id": 4,
"price": 5,
"status": 1,
"visibility": 4,
"type_id": "simple",
"weight": 2.5


GET: V1/products/simple1


And if you are in latest release, you can access all the REST endpoints through Swagger UI from your Magento instance:

<Magento Server>/swagger




Re: Magento2 Webervices Api

Hey Jitest,


Thanks for your reply.


I am trying to post the data using CURL, I tried passing the product json string that you have provided, but found the following error.

{"message":"Invalid type for value: \"array\". Expected Type: \"string\"."}


Rather than this I am also not able to pass array to post data using CURL. Is it that we can only post data using JSON via CURL?


Kindly provide solution to this issue as it is an important concern.
