How to set Product Category of a Product using Shopify API

Hi, I have a system that adds and updates products through Python code utilizing the Shopify REST APIs. I am currently trying to modify the code and also add the Product Category to all the products I am adding through this system.

 

However, from what I have read in the documentation, I am unable to figure out any such parameter for the Product Category for the Product. I am happy to add it through the Product Update code if it is not possible to send this in the Create Product API.

 

Currently, I am using the REST API, so that is where I am looking for this option. From what I understand, I can utilize GraphQL to update the products and add the Product Category, using this: https://shopify.dev/docs/api/admin-graphql/unstable/mutations/productUpdate#field-productinput-produ...

But using this API would mean making a whole different call for all my products being added. There are currently 7000+ products that are being added through the Shopify REST API so I would really be looking to use the same option for this. 

 

For reference, I am talking about the Product Category shown in the image below.
