Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create two websites with stores.

  2. Go to Stores > Configurations > Catalog > Catalog > Price > Catalog and Set Price Scope = Website.

  3. Create a text-type product attribute. Leave all the options to default.

  4. Add the attribute created to the default attribute set.

  5. Create a simple product to use with a bundle product.

  6. Create a bundle product with the following Example options:

    • Enable Product = Yes.
    • Attribute Set = Default.
    • Product Name = bundle-1.
    • SKU = bundle-1.
    • Dynamic SKU = Yes.
    • Price = $100.00.
    • Tax Class = Taxable Goods.
    • Stock Status = In Stock.
  7. Under Bundle Items, set these Example options:

    • Ship Bundle Items = Together.
    • Option Title = test, Input Type = Radio Buttons, Required checkbox = checked.
    • Is Default checkbox = unchecked.
    • Name = simple-100.
    • SKU = simple-100.
    • Price = 100.00.
    • Price Type = Fixed.
    • Default Quantity = 1.
    • User Defined checkbox = unchecked.
  8. Switch the scope to the non-default store, and set the special price. (Example: on the Advanced Pricing page, set Special Price = 4%, and Price View = Price Range.)

  9. Update the new attribute only in the non-default store scope, like this Example:

    code language-php
        PUT {{base_url}}/rest/en_au/async/V1/products/{{sku}}    {        "product": {            "custom_attributes": [                {                    "attribute_code": "text_attr",                    "value": 21                                   }            ]                    }    }

Expected results:

Other attribute values remain the same when updating a product attribute using async rest API, as expected.

Actual results:

The special price, that was set using async rest API under the store scope, gets removed.
