Associations in PrestaShop 1.7 Webservice

In this blog, we are going to learn how to create associations in the PrestaShop Webservice and get data from the association table.

So let’s understand how to achieve it:

Sometimes, we need to give our module association table data in API then simply we will get it with the help of PrestaShop hook and some changes in our class file.

In PrestaShop, we can add new resources using hook hookAddWebserviceResources and give permission to get data of these added resources from the PrestaShop Webservice section.

public function hookAddWebserviceResources()
    $resources = array(
        'wk_supplier_purchase_order_manual' => array('description' => 'PO order manual', 'class' => 'WkSupplierPurchaseOrderManual')
    return $resources;

Now we will go to the class file and define the value in the protected $webserviceParameters variable for associations.

protected $webserviceParameters = array(
    'associations' => array(
        'items' => array(
            'resource' => 'wk_supplier_purchase_order_detail_manual',
            'fields' => array(
                'id_wk_supplier_purchase_order_manual' => array('required' => true),
                'quantity' => array('required' => true),
                'product_name' => array('required' => true),
                'supplier_code' => array('required' => true),

In the above code, we have defined the association array and given the association table name as a resource and fields that we want from the association table.

After doing the above changes, you will get the association table data in your API call.
