Updating resources

Updating a product

You can update a product's labels via key-value pairs, such as style=women's or onSale=true, using the following code.


To update a product, send a PATCH request to the following URI.

  • Replace project-id with the id of your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) project.

  • Replace location-id with a valid location identifier. Valid location identifiers are: us-west1, us-east1, europe-west1, and asia-east1.

  • Replace product-id with the id for the product to update.

PATCH https://vision.googleapis.com/v1p3beta1/projects/project-id/locations/location-id/products/product-id
    'updateMask': { 'paths': ['display_name'] }
   'product': { 'display_name': 'new-display-name' },
