Collections are subsets of offers based on predefined conditions defined by a marketer, such as category of the offer.

You can create a collection by making a POST request to the Offer Library API, while providing your container ID.

Accept and Content-Type headers

The following table shows the valid values which comprise the Content-Type and Accept fields in the request header:

Header name Value
Accept application/vnd.adobe.platform.xcore.xdm.receipt+json; version=1
Content-Type application/schema-instance+json; version=1; schema=";version=0.1"

API format

Parameter Description Example
{ENDPOINT_PATH} The endpoint path for repository APIs.
{CONTAINER_ID} The container where the collections are located. e0bd8463-0913-4ca1-bd84-6309134ca1f6
