Response 200

When there aren't any call level issues, a 200 status code is returned with a status of "Success", "Partial Success", or "Failure". If the result is "Failure" or "Partial Success", you should also receive a collection of messages to say which items in the array failed to update a product and why. A "Failure" status means that there weren't any products that were successfully updated.

{
  "status": "Partial Success",
  "messages": [
    "Index 1: No active products with SKU 'aabbcc' were found."
  ]

  • Any SKU in your request appears more than once.
  • You're attempting to pass in more than 25 updates in the same call.

{
  "Message": "Any SKU in your request can appear a maximum of one time.",
  "ExceptionMessage": "Any SKU in your request can appear a maximum of one time.  The following Skus were passed in more than once: \r\n54099",
  "ExceptionType": "System.InvalidOperationException",
  "StackTrace": null
}
