Throttling limits for the Get All Fulfillment Centers API

In case you missed it, we introduced a new feed processing limit for the Get All Fulfillment Centers API to maintain optimal performance. You can now process no more than 10 calls per minute. We recommend submitting fulfillment center queries in small batches. If you try to exceed the limits, your API calls will be returned with an error.

View variant grouping information via Walmart APIs

API users can now view variant grouping information including the variant group ID and count of items via the new Get Item Count by Groups API. The following existing APIs: Catalog Search, Get An Item, and Get All Items can also return variant group information using an additional query parameter. On April 16, variant group information will be updated in all existing responses without the use of an additional query parameter.

On-request report retention reminder

When generating an on-request report, our systems create a ‘Request ID’ that is used to track the status of the requested report. As a reminder, the details of the report and the Request ID are retained for 30 days. Any attempt to fetch the Request ID after 30 days will return a 404 error. Read our On-request Reports API Overview below for more details.
