Referencing public image url as Product image in magento 2.0

Referencing public image url as Product image in magento 2.0

Hi,
I am able to send products on magento using rest api but I would like to send images as well.

Previously I was sending blobs but it was to bulky to handle in JSON.

So is there any way to just send a public image url using rest call which will associate that image to product.

Details 

Image : Is publicly hosted on aws s3

Callout : Doing rest call from saleforce

Goal : want to associate that public url as a small_image of product.

Thanks

Hi @AKum,

 

I think you can't do that out-fo-the-box but maybe you can try extending the product endpoint to handle the request in that way. Then, inside Magento, you could try to fetch the remote image.

Hi AKum,

 

 

Maybe this will help you:

http://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/105677/getting-a-custom-attribute-image

 

We are doing a similar customization for a client now but, in our case, URLs to the images are kept in a separate table referenced to each product by SKU, not as attributes so we have to do a custom solution for that client.

 

Hope this helps.

@Damian Culotta agree with you but magento should have this feature by default.

Thanks !
