Setting the IAP genre via the API RRS feed

  • Question


  • I'm trying to submit/commit all IAP data via the Windows Store API.

    I can submit all the data via the API, except the genre. Because of the missing genre I can't commit the IAP.

    Is there any way to set this? I couldn't find it anywhere in the documentation.

  • Hi NielsMeijer,

    You might create an add-on first and set the value of productType ("Durable" or "Consumable"). And here is the document for reference:  Create an add-on.

    After that you could Create an add-on submission and Commit an add-on submission.

  • Hi Annievia,

    I've already managed to create the IAP, set the price tier, name and description via the API. However, to submit an IAP to the store a genre also needs to be set. This seems to be why whenever I try to commit an IAP via the API it fails.

    So is it possible to set the genre via the API, or will I always need to do this by hand?

    Kind regards,

    Niels Meijer

  • Hi Niels,

    Sincerely sorry for the delay reply.

    >>So is it possible to set the genre via the API, or will I always need to do this by hand?

    It is fine to use the API.

    Developers can use some methods to get, create, update, commit, or delete an add-on submission. But before using these methods, the add-on must already exist in your Dev Center account (you could refer to Manage add-on submissions). This means the add-on itself is needed first before the add-on submission.

    You might create an add-on in the dashboard by defining its product type and product ID or by using the Windows Store submission API methods described in Manage add-ons.

    Best Regards,
