Initial release of Version 1.
This release adds one new method to marketplace resource:
- For the specified marketplace, retrieves the list of categories that require items to be listed with an ePID value:
Important! This method is currently in the roll-out phase and its availability and functionality is strictly limited to the Sandbox. As with all metadata calls, do not code against the values retrieved from the Sandbox because these values cannot be guaranteed to be up to date. Be sure to use only the values you retrieve from the Production environment.
This message will be removed once the functionality is live in Production.
This new method returns a list of leaf categories from the category tree of the specified marketplace. Each node in the response shows the policies that govern whether or not items listed in that category require an ePID value in their item descriptions. If productRequired equals
true, then that category is governed by the product-adoption policies and you must include an ePID value in the body of any items you list in that category.
