Commercial marketplace submission API overview
Use API to programmatically query, create submissions for, and publish offers. API is useful if your account manages many offers and you want to automate and optimize the submission process for these offers.
Types of APIs
There are two sets of submission API available:
- Partner Center submission API – The common set of APIs that work across consumer and commercial products to publish through Partner Center. New capabilities are continuously added to this set of APIs. For more information on how to integrate with this API, see Partner Center submission API onboarding.
- Product Ingestion API – The new set of modern APIs to create and manage commercial offers through Partner Center. New capabilities are continuously added to this set of APIs. The APIs are in preview state and will soon be launched for all offer types and will eventually replace the Partner Center submission and Legacy Cloud Partner Portal APIs. For more information on how to integrate with the modern Product Ingestion API, see Product Ingestion API for the commercial marketplace.
- Legacy Cloud Partner Portal API – The APIs carried over from the deprecated Cloud Partner Portal; it is integrated with and continues to work in Partner Center. This set of APIs is in maintenance mode only; new capabilities introduced in Partner Center may not be supported, and it should only be used for existing products that were already integrated before transition to Partner Center. For more information on how to continue to use the Cloud Partner Portal APIs, see Cloud Partner Portal API Reference.
