Method: projects.locations.catalogs.branches.products.removeFulfillmentPlaces

Incrementally removes place IDs from a Product.fulfillment_info.place_ids.

This process is asynchronous and does not require the Product to exist before updating fulfillment information. If the request is valid, the update will be enqueued and processed downstream. As a consequence, when a response is returned, the removed place IDs are not immediately manifested in the Product queried by products.get or products.list.

This feature is only available for users who have Retail enabled. Please submit a form here to contact cloud sales if you are interested in using Retail

Path parameters



Required. Full resource name of Product, such as projects/*/locations/global/catalogs/default_catalog/branches/default_branch/products/some_product_id.

If the caller does not have permission to access the Product, regardless of whether or not it exists, a PERMISSION_DENIED error is returned.

Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

JSON representation
  "type": string,
  "placeIds": [
  "removeTime": string,
  "allowMissing": boolean


Required. The fulfillment type, including commonly used types (such as pickup in store and same day delivery), and custom types.

Supported values:

  • "pickup-in-store"
  • "ship-to-store"
  • "same-day-delivery"
  • "next-day-delivery"
  • "custom-type-1"
  • "custom-type-2"
  • "custom-type-3"
  • "custom-type-4"
  • "custom-type-5"

If this field is set to an invalid value other than these, an INVALID_ARGUMENT error is returned.

This field directly corresponds to [Product.fulfillment_info.type][].



Required. The IDs for this type, such as the store IDs for "pickup-in-store" or the region IDs for "same-day-delivery", to be removed for this type.

At least 1 value is required, and a maximum of 2000 values are allowed. Each value must be a string with a length limit of 10 characters, matching the pattern [a-zA-Z0-9_-]+, such as "store1" or "REGION-2". Otherwise, an INVALID_ARGUMENT error is returned.


string (Timestamp format)

The time when the fulfillment updates are issued, used to prevent out-of-order updates on fulfillment information. If not provided, the internal system time will be used.

A timestamp in RFC3339 UTC "Zulu" format, with nanosecond resolution and up to nine fractional digits. Examples: "2014-10-02T15:01:23Z" and "2014-10-02T15:01:23.045123456Z".



If set to true, and the Product is not found, the fulfillment information will still be processed and retained for at most 1 day and processed once the Product is created. If set to false, a NOT_FOUND error is returned if the Product is not found.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains an instance of Operation.
