PS - API - PUT clears any fields not included


Recommended Posts

I'm on Prestashop

I need to update the shipping_number of an order. For that I'm using:

PUT to http://SN...7C@localhost:8888/prestashop1616/api/orders

If I send:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<prestashop xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
      <shipping_number notFilterable="true">1234567890</shipping_number>

The response is:

parameter "id_address_delivery" required


So apparently the request requires ALL the fields of the object, some of them are mandatory, which can be ok to some extent. But other that are not mandatory, if omitted, their values are cleared from the original data.

To me that doesn't make much sense, it behaves as a POST and not as a PUT.

Having to send ALL the data over is a needless risk in my opinion.

Is this behaviour a bug of


Also this PUT create a new order_history object, which again I'm not sure it makes much sense.

Thanks for your reply hakeryk2

I'm accessing the Webservice from Ruby, not form javascript.

But in that post it says "then PUT the whole XML file back to the same URL again"

The whole XML. So it looks like it behaves that same way. Probably there's nothing that can be done, other than sending the whole thing. Which in my opinion is an ugly thing.
