We have a need for relating categories with multiple catalogs.
so we have:
Catalog1 - Code: 1
Catalog2 - Code: 2
Category3 - Code: 3
Now I want to be able to relate Category3 to both Catalog1 and Catalog2. Categories can be related to other categories just fine across catalogs, but it is the categories that exist just below the catalog that doesn't seem to be possible to relate between catalogs. Code cannot be changed, as data is coming from a PIM system.
End goal would be:
Is this possible through some api I missed somewhere? IRelationsRepository cannot handle the parent of a relation being a content reference to a catalog.
It is unfortunately impossible. The categories directly under a catalog do not have a "relation", they "belong" to that catalog
Perhaps it does not fit your requirements, but you technically can have Category4 to be in Catalog2, and then link everything from Category3 to Category4
Thanks for the response Quan, your suggestion is unfortunately not an option. The PIM provides structures for the catalogs and also the Codes for the structure and trying to create some sort of shadow structure while importing will increase complexity to much I believe. Will have to come up with a workaround it sounds like.
