By default, the API delivers the entities via the system language. This can be changed by specifying a language id using the
--header 'sw-language-id: be01bd336c204f20ab86eab45bbdbe45'
Shopware only populates a translatable field if there is an explicit translation for that field. Instead, the
translated object always contains values, if necessary fallbacks.
Example: You instruct Shopware to fetch the french translation of a product using the
sw-language-id header, but there's no french translation for the products name. The resulting field
product.name will be
null. When you're building applications, always use
product.translated.[value]to access translated values, to make sure you will always get a valid translation or fallback value.
Shopware 6 allows developers to define inheritance (parent-child) relationships between entities of the same type. This has been used, for example, for products and their variants. Certain fields of a variant can therefore inherit the data from the parent product or define (i.e. override) them themselves. However, the API initially only delivers the data of its own record, without considering parent-child inheritance. To tell the API that the inheritance should be considered, the header
sw-inheritance must be sent along with the request.
--header 'sw-inheritance: 1'
