I’m not sure I explained well what I try to reach…
To be sure :
Products = post
Categories = taxonomy
When I go to this endpoint : https://mywebsite/wp-json/wc/v3/products/categories/
I receive all the categories available for the products from the api.
So there isn’t any filter. Screenshot enclose
Before I will create a new category I need to know if the category already exist or not.
I add a ACF field on the category to insert a unique ID.
On the screenshot you can see coming from the plugin ACF-to-rest-api
So the unique ID is “merca1”
Now I want to ask the api to return me all the categories where there is “merca1” in the field “id_category_mercator”.
Those values are stored in the table termmeta
If it’s working, the api will return me 1 category and not all the list.
Is it so more clear what I’m looking for or are your samples the correct ones ?
Thanks in advance,
