This is the unified documentation for Retail API. This includes Recommendations AI, Retail Search, and the unified Retail console (which is applicable to both Recommendations AI and Retail Search users). To use the new console or Retail Search while they are in the restricted GA phase, submit a form here to contact Cloud sales. If you are using the v1beta version of Recommendations AI, migrate to the GA version: Migrating to the Retail API from beta.

To see documentation for only Recommendations AI and the Recommendations AI-only console, go to the How-to guides for Recommendations AI and the API reference documentation for Recommendations AI.
