Product API docs incorrect

The docs at claim that the default value for 'status' is 'active'.

However in practice it seems to be 'any'.

For example, have a look at X-Request-Id: e9798f25-5f3a-4216-96c8-efee60784d46 which is a simple GET /admin/api/2020-10/products.json?limit=250 and notice that the results contain products with a status of "archived".

Can you please fix the documentation?

I'm not sure if this issue affects other API versions?

Hey @ClementBR,

Can you clarify? Looking at the docs at that URL, the default status specified is "any" (which will return archived orders etc).
