Product UPC, SKU, and Brand now available in the API

Thursday May 23rd we will be updating the Product Service in the Catalog API to include new elements in the Product Service response. Below is a description of which new elements will appear in the feed and when they will appear:

Product Responses

When the Product Service is returning a Product object (that is an object with an assigned Product ID and one or more offers aligned to that Product ID) we will now also return the Brand ID and Brand Name for that product along with any Product SKUS that align to that Product ID. An example of an updated response with the new elements highlighted is depicted below:

Offer Responses

For each Offer object that is returned (whether it is aligned to a Product ID or not) we will now also return Brand ID and Brand Name along with the product UPC (alongside the SKU which we have always provided at the offer level when we have it available). An example of an updated response with the new elements highlighted is depicted below:

If you are correctly integrating with the catalog API, then neither of these changes should have any impact on your site unless you choose to include them. If you have any issues at all or any questions about this update please contact us any time.
