This topic describes how to work with RESTful operations for catalog entry associations in the Optimizely Service API.

Example models

[Serializable]
public class NameValue
  {
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Value { get; set; }
  }
[Serializable]
public class ResourceLink
  {
    public string Title { get; set; }
    public string Type { get; set; }
    public string Href { get; set; }
    public List<NameValue> Properties { get; set; }
  }
[Serializable]
public class EntryAssociation
  {
    public int SortOrder { get; set; }
    public string Type { get; set; }
    public string CatalogEntryCode { get; set; }
    public ResourceLink CatalogEntry { get; set; }
  }
[Serializable]
public class Association
  {
    public int SortOrder { get; set; }
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string CatalogEntryCode { get; set; }
    public string Description { get; set; }
    public List<EntryAssociation> EntryAssociations { get; set; }
  }

Get all entry associations

var result = client.GetAsync("/episerverapi/commerce/entries/{entry code}/associations").Result.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result

XML response type

var client = new HttpClient()
