Lorna Mitchell's Blog:
Retrieving Product Attributes from Magento's V2 API
Jul 12, 2010 @ 09:28:14

Lorna Mitchell has posted a sort of follow-up to her previous post about accessing the Magento A{I to pull information about products from the application. In this new post she takes it a step further and shows how to get attributes from those products.

I've been working with the API for Magento in recent weeks and I had a bit of a struggle explaining to the V2 API which attributes of a product I wanted to retrieve. Actually I had issues talking to the V2 API at all, but that's a different post so I'll skate over those for now. Instead I thought I'd share (or rather, record for the next time I have the same problem!) how to specify which attributes about a product to retrieve.

She figured out that you could use the info method for the product_catalog call and specify the attributes you want. Her code example shows how to fetch the title, description, a shorter description and the price of an item.
