I am trying to use the Rest API to create partial shipments for Magneto 2 orders. In two different scenarios.

First is one item with multiple pieces, say a customer ordered 4 pieces of sku 3 but I only ship 1 piece. I send the message to


with body


I get a valid response "44360" but when I check the order in the admin I see

Ordered 4

Shipped 4.

I have tried the message with just the items


and with actual item id



every one of them yields the same result

Ordered 4

Shipped 4.

The second scenario is with multiple items in the order; if I ship one item but not the other both are shown as fully shipped.

It basically appears that the application is just seeing the order_id in the POST path and marks everything in that order as shipped in full.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

For partial shipments you can use the following webservice:


/rest/V1/shipment enter image description here

The only set back is that you will have to update the qty_shipped of your order_item manually. For that you can use the order repository.


let me know if you need any further assistance !

  • That was very helpful and helped resolve my issue. I have run into a similar thing with invoices as well; are partial invoices possible with authorize.net?

  • I don't use authorize.net . I use this webservice, devdocs.magento.com/swagger/#/salesInvoiceRepositoryV1 You can invoice a partial amount but you have to pass a lot of information into the webservice in order to it correctly.
