Akeneo PIM Events API

Akeneo PIM Events API

Akeneo PIM Events API

The Events API is a smooth and easy way to build integrations that respond to activities in Akeneo PIM. All you need is PIM Events API Bundle and an endpoint where to send Akeneo PIM events.

How it works

  • Some event(s) happens in Akeneo PIM. This triggers a mechanism to send those event(s) to a consumer
  • Consumer receives a JSON payload which specifies event (the same data format like Akeneo PIM API uses)
  • Akeneo PIM Events API Bundle uses separate job to deliver events to consumer
  • The sending of events happens in real-time

Supported Event Types

  • Category (create/update/delete)
  • Attribute (create/update/delete)
  • Family (create/update/delete)
  • Product (create/update/delete)
  • Product Model (create/update/delete)

Possible Use Cases

  • Integration with IFTTT (If This Then That), a free web-based service to create chains of simple conditional statements
  • Integration with Zapier, web-based service that allows users to integrate the web applications they use
  • Integration with Microsoft Flow, which automates tasks by integrating your favourite apps with Microsoft Flow. Make repetitive tasks easy
  • Notifications based on events to third-party systems (slack, email, jira, phones messages, etc)
