Cart Id, how to get

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Trying to use CART END POINT.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/commerce/dev-itpro/retail-server-customer-consumer-api#cart-controller

Cart Id, is required. Based on my observation from sample E-Comm site, 

Cart id is linked to user if user is logged in cart Id seems unique for user, but for guest users, cart id is different,

HOW can I get these cart id dynamically?? Is there any endpoint that returns cart id?

    Commerce SDK is shipped with Sample Online Store which is a sample demonstrating how to use Retail Server's ODATA endpoint to manipulate with the cart. The manager you need is ICartManager. The above mentioned SDK contains the file CartOperationsHandler.cs which demonstrates how to Create/Get/AddItems as well as many other operations with the Cart.

    Here you can see basics of interacting with RS by using ODATA: How to access Retail Server in managed code.

    Actually Ended up using Retail Proxy nuget packages. Thanks.

    So apparently OData endpoints can not be used independently. This would probably go somewhere suggested feature or something.

    Hi Arijit,

    Sorry for the delay.

    I have found that you cannot use Odata to create a cart.

    However, you could look at calling the Retail Server APIs to accomplish this.

    Thank you. I understand Cart need to be created before performing any operation in cart.

    Is there a way to create a CART using odata end points?

    I can not seem to find any odata method here,

    Hi Arijit365,

    General speaking, in eCommerce scenario, Cart ID is equivalent to Retail Transaction ID. It's generated before a cart was created, for example, any user searching product, even before adding product to the cart.
