The application then calls Read Product Catalog API from the Product Catalog Management Service for the product catalog ID and receives a response containing a list of product IDs.

Best Practices

  • The frequency for updating the Product catalog should be weekly. Product issuers require that the current terms and conditions be used.
  • The Product Catalog information should be cached by the client’s application server.
  • Version number change only indicates when the products within a catalog are added or deleted.
  • To determine any changes related to the underlying Product or Product Line, the respective API call should be initiated as part of the whole catalog update process.
