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.

HttpBody

Message that represents an arbitrary HTTP body. It should only be used for payload formats that can't be represented as JSON, such as raw binary or an HTML page.

This message can be used both in streaming and non-streaming API methods in the request as well as the response.

It can be used as a top-level request field, which is convenient if one wants to extract parameters from either the URL or HTTP template into the request fields and also want access to the raw HTTP body.

Example:

message GetResourceRequest {
  // A unique request id.
  string request_id = 1;

  // The raw HTTP body is bound to this field.
  google.api.HttpBody http_body = 2;

}

service ResourceService {
  rpc GetResource(GetResourceRequest)
    returns (google.api.HttpBody);
  rpc UpdateResource(google.api.HttpBody)
    returns (google.protobuf.Empty);

}

Example with streaming methods:

service CaldavService {
  rpc GetCalendar(stream google.api.HttpBody)
    returns (stream google.api.HttpBody);
  rpc UpdateCalendar(stream google.api.HttpBody)
    returns (stream google.api.HttpBody);

}

Use of this type only changes how the request and response bodies are handled, all other features will continue to work unchanged.

Fields
content_type

string

The HTTP Content-Type header value specifying the content type of the body.

data

bytes

The HTTP request/response body as raw binary.

extensions[]
