#FEATURE DEPRECATION Published products

On February 28, 2024, the Published products feature will be removed from Akeneo PIM. Therefore all related API capabilities will be deleted.

If you use the Published products API endpoints, you need to use the Product API instead to get the list of your products and activate them on your activation channels. We strongly advise you to adapt existing integrations as soon as possible.
