13 Dec 2018:

This is a major feature release regarding the creation and updating of order records via the API. Here is a break down of what is new:

  • List All Orders: Introduced a new query parameter api_managed, meaning you can now filter for api_managed orders 

  • Create An Order: Allows you to create an entire order record in one shot. These orders will inherit the api_managed: true value meaning that they will not be editable via the admin panel only through the API.

  • Update Order Header: An endpoint which allows you to update any top level order information i.e. customer, billing_address, shipping_address, branch, etc. Note: If you update the shipping or billing addresses of a normal system order, that order will be converted to an API Managed order meaning you won't be able to manage via the admin panel anymore.

  • Bulk Update Order Header: An endpoint which allows you to batch update the order header of several orders at a time. Current limit is 10.

  • Update Order Payment: Several more fields have now been exposed and are updatable. 

  • Create Order Shipping: You can add shipping records to existing orders.

  • Update Order Shipping: Several more fields exposed to give you full access to shipping values.

  • Update Order Line Items: This request will allow you to update the order line items. You must however provide all line items as this request will clear any line items you have currently. Note: Updating line items will result in your order inheriting the api_managed: true value.

23 Nov 2018:

  • Users: role_id field is no longer required when creating an account user, if role_id is not found the user will inherit the 'Business Default Role' set in the admin panel.

19 Nov 2018
