I am using magento 2 api for assigning product link like related or crosssell using api /V1/products/{sku}/links

Here is My Sample Code

$sku1 = "sku1";
$sku2 = "sku2";
$productData = array(
        "items" =>  array(
              "sku" => $sku1,
              "linkType" => 'related',
              "linkedProductSku" => $sku2,
              "linkedProductType" => "simple",
              "position" => 0

    $headers = array("Content-Type:application/json","Authorization: Bearer ".tn_webshopKey);
    $requestUrl= mag_apiurl.'products/'.$sku1.'/links';
    $ch = curl_init($requestUrl);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($productData));
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    echo $returnProductDetails = curl_exec($ch);

But Every time i run the script its response

{"message":"%fieldName is required filed.","parameters":{"fieldName":"linkType"}}

But the link type 'related' is already defined in my data (productData)

Can anyone knows the solution

Looking at the Swagger Documentation should these not be -

  "items": [
      "sku": "string",
      "link_type": "string",
      "linked_product_sku": "string",
      "linked_product_type": "string",
      "position": 0,

There are some differences ive noticed between those documentation that each document have different model schema declaration like some has snake_case and on other hand some has camelCase so do not begin confused between the documentation of swagger and select appropriate version of document for each store

  • Thanks A lot the answer you posted opened my eyes actually i am looking the swagger documentation of enterprise version of magento and i am working on community edition thanks once again :) Jan 4, 2018 at 12:09
