hasContent

The hasContent filter allows you to filter products if they have a specific field. Let's say you wanna get all products which have a publicprice. Then you would just use this filter in the body:

"hasContent": {
"flag" : "publicPrice"
}

This is a very effective way to refine your selection and get optimized results. Of course, this can be combined with different filters. Such as the AND, NOT, OR filters. You can use the get-fields] endpoint to get a list of all the possible flags to filter on.

Add a locale parameter for fields that have localized values.

"hasContent": {
"flag": "descriptions.usage",
"locale": "nl
}

See below for an advanced use case involving the hasContent filter.

CTI

In our system, the CTI enables grouping of products where the product is identical except for the quantity indication. This allows you to group identical products for which different packaging exists.

Grouping by Name (nameCti)

In our system, the field 'group by product name' or in the API 'nameCti' enables grouping of products where the name is identical except for the quantity indication. This allows you to group identical products for which different packaging exists.

An identical value (?) is assigned for products where the name is identical except for the quantity indication. This allows you to group identical products for which different packaging exists. Note: Medipim retrieves the name of a product from various sources. Poorly structured names can lead to discrepancies.
