Assigning categories to products using APIs.

Hi,

I posted this in the wrong forum earlier and it was deleted, so I respectfully request to ask this again (this time hopefully in the correct plact):

 

How can I use the API to assign products to a category? I have/will have hundreds of items uploaded/removed at various times but I can only see how to assign tags using either the Products API or the Inventory API.

Categories are crucial to any online store, and I would argue that if the API is to be useful at all then it should allow category assignations like it does tags. I'm perfectly fine with adding categories before or after, but the ability to associate them with a product is pretty important.

Am I missing something here?

This isn't possible using an API. The Products API does not allow store categories to be managed.

Is there any way to read the categories assigned to a product through the API?

You can read tags but not categories.
