I Try To Update A Variants Parameter 'option1' Via API - Getting {"errors":{"variant":"Required Parameter Missing Or Invalid"}}

- 1 answer

I try to update a variants option1. If you look at the code below: The function getVariant will return a json of this variant, so the basic call as well as the authentication to the API works. The function updateVariant however only returns: {"errors":{"variant":"Required parameter missing or invalid"}}

Most google results suggest to solve this error I have to set the Content-Type, which I did. But it did not change anything. What do I miss here?

I try to reproduce the call in this api reference: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/products/product-variant#update-2019-07

$varianturl ="https://".$api_key.":".$password."@".$shop."/admin/api/2019-07/variants/15990192209979.json";

print_r(getVariant($varianturl));
print_r(updateVariant($varianturl));


function getVariant($url) {
    $ch = curl_init();

    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL,$url);
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);

    $data = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $data;

}

function updateVariant($url) {
    $ch = curl_init();
    $params = array(
    "id"=> 15990192209979,
    "option1"=> "Not Pink",
    "price"=> "99.00"
    );

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'PUT');
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($params));
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Content-Type: application/json"));
    $data = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $data;

As i can see you are using private app concept to fetch and update the data from Shopify .

Kindly replace your code by this code

    $varianturl ="https://".$api_key.":".$password."@".$shop."/admin/api/2019-07/variants/15990192209979.json"; //15990192209979 this is a variant id
    print_r(getVariant($varianturl));
    print_r(updateVariant($varianturl));die;


    function getVariant($url) {
        $headers = [];
        $headers[] = "Authorization: Basic ".base64_encode($api_key.":".$password)."";
        $headers[] = 'X-Shopify-Access-Token:'.$password;
        $ch = curl_init();
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_ENCODING, '');
        $data = curl_exec($ch);
        curl_close($ch);
         list($message_headers, $message_body) = preg_split("/\r\n\r\n|\n\n|\r\r/", $data, 2);
        return $message_body;

    }

    function updateVariant($url) {
        $params = [];
        $params['variant'] = array(
        "id"=> 15990192209979, //this is product id not variant id
        "option1"=> "Not Pink",
        "price"=> "99.00"
        );
        $headers = [];
        $headers = array("Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8", 'Expect:');
        $headers[] = "Authorization: Basic ".base64_encode($api_key.":".$password)."";
        $headers[] = 'X-Shopify-Access-Token:'.$password;

        $ch = curl_init($url);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 3);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);//deepak
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'ohShopify-php-api-client');
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 100);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 100);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'PUT');
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($params));
        $data = curl_exec($ch);
        curl_close($ch);
          list($message_headers, $message_body) = preg_split("/\r\n\r\n|\n\n|\r\r/", $data, 2);
        return $message_body;

    }
