Published_scope doesn't display correct channels, "web", "global", or "mobile"

The published_scope is always global no matter what. We need to know when we are only using a product on our mobile sdk. 

 

This question has been answer multiple times by the community but no one has the answer. We need help on this and so do all those who posted about this before us.

Hi Blake,

published_scope is an earlier item that was set up before channels really came into effect. It will only distinguish between POS, online and Global (no Pinterest, Buy Button or App). This is actually going to be deprecated soon and replaced with a variable that better reflects the new channels setup :)

Nathan, how would I go about automatically allowing it be sold via buy button then? Is there any way right now?

Is the new variable available yet? We need to enable Mobile App in the scope but not sure how to do it.

Thanks

Hi Shane,

Great to hear and thanks for your e-mail earlier.  Just in case I miss your update, it would be great if you could give me the heads up on e-mail too when it's ready.

You sound confident enough that it's not going to take too long?

Thanks

Patrick

Hi Shayne,

Thank you for your response. Do you have any idea of time scales for the new end point? Are we talking days or weeks? If so we may need to look at a work around.

Would it be possible as a short term fix to have the mobile channel enabled by default as opposed to disabled?

 

Thanks

Matt

Is there any update on this? I am facing the same issue. I cannot specify the sales channels on which the product is visible for products created through the API.

We also need an update to this. Not having these options is costing us a lot of time.
