ProductIdentifiersType

This type is used to provide details about recommended Product Identifier types. The ProductIdentifiers container will consist of one or more Product Identifier types that can be, or possibly required to be used when listing a product.

Note: The ProductIdentifiers container will only be returned in the Sandbox environment for the time being. This container has not been wired on in production. An alternative way to see if a Product Identifier type is required for a category is to use the GetCategoryFeatures call and look for the values returned under the EANEnabled, ISBNEnabled, UPCEnabled, and other fields that indicate the Product Identifier types that are supported/required for the category.

Fields

NameRecommendation ( NameRecommendationType ) [0..*]
A separate NameRecommendation container will be returned for each Product Identifier type that is supported/required by the category. These Product Identifier types will be common Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) types such as UPC, ISBN, and EAN. To see if one or more of the Product Identifier types are actually required at listing time, the seller will need to look at the ValidationRules container and the MinRequired value. If two Product Identifier types are returned, and the MinRequired value is the 2, the seller will be required to use both Product Identifier types at listing time. If the MinRequired value was 0, one or both of those Product Identifier types could be used, but they would not be required.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use NameRecommendation.

ValidationRules ( GroupValidationRulesType ) [1]
This container holds the MinRequired field, whose value will indicate whether or not one or more Product Identifier types (returned in a corresponding NameRecommendation container) are required when listing a product. If two Product Identifier types are returned, and the MinRequired value is the 2, the seller will be required to use both Product Identifier types at listing time. If the MinRequired value was 0, one or both of those Product Identifier types could be used, but they would not be required.
