A simple PHP client to use the Akeneo PIM API.

Matrix compatibility:

PIM version(s) API PHP Client version CI status
v2.0 v1.0 Build Status
v2.1 - v2.2 v2.0 Build Status
v2.3 v3.0 Build Status
v3.0 - v4.0 v4.0 - v5.0 Build Status
v5.0 v6.0 -
v6.0 >= v7.0 -
- master CircleCI

Note that our PHP client is backward compatible. For example, if your PIM is currently a v2.3, you can still use a 1.0 version of the PHP client. The new endpoints available in v2.3 will not be available in the v1.0 of the PHP client.


  • PHP >= 8.0
  • Composer


We use HTTPPlug as the HTTP client abstraction layer. In this example, we will use Guzzle v6 as the HTTP client implementation.

api-php-client uses Composer. The first step to use api-php-client is to download composer:

$ curl -s | php

Then, run the following command to require the library:

$ php composer.phar require akeneo/api-php-client php-http/guzzle6-adapter:^2.0 http-interop/http-factory-guzzle:^1.0

If you want to use another HTTP client implementation, you can check here the full list of HTTP client implementations.


Full documentation is available on the API website.

Getting started

Initialise the client

You first need to initialise the client with your credentials client id/secret and with your user/password.

If you don't have any client id, let's take a look at this page to create it.


require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$clientBuilder = new \Akeneo\Pim\ApiClient\AkeneoPimClientBuilder('http://localhost/');
$client = $clientBuilder->buildAuthenticatedByPassword('client_id', 'secret', 'admin', 'admin');

You can authenticate to the client with your token/refresh token as well.

$client = $clientBuilder->buildAuthenticatedByToken('client_id', 'secret', 'token', 'refresh_token');

Getting the token and refresh token is as simple as:


If you are developing an App, authenticate with your app token.

$client = $clientBuilder->buildAuthenticatedByAppToken('app_token');

Get a product

$product = $client->getProductApi()->get('top');
echo $product['identifier']; // display "top"

Get a list of products

By getting pages

$searchBuilder = new \Akeneo\Pim\ApiClient\Search\SearchBuilder();
$searchBuilder->addFilter('enabled', '=', true);
$searchFilters = $searchBuilder->getFilters();

$firstPage = $client->getProductApi()->listPerPage(50, true, ['search' => $searchFilters]);

echo $firstPage->getCount();

foreach ($firstPage->getItems() as $product) {
    // do your stuff here
    echo $product['identifier'];

$nextPage = $firstPage->getNextPage();

$firstPage = $nextPage->getPreviousPage();

By getting a cursor

$searchBuilder = new \Akeneo\Pim\ApiClient\Search\SearchBuilder();
$searchBuilder->addFilter('enabled', '=', true);
$searchFilters = $searchBuilder->getFilters();

$products = $client->getProductApi()->all(50, ['search' => $searchFilters]);
foreach ($products as $product) {
    // do your stuff here
    echo $product['identifier'];

Create a product

$client->getProductApi()->create('top', ['enabled' => true]);

Upsert a product

$client->getProductApi()->upsert('top', ['family' => 'tshirt']);

Upsert a list of of products

        'identifier' => 'top',
        'family' => 'tshirt',
        'identifier' => 'cap',
        'categories' => ['hat'],

Headers option

You can make the client send requests with additional headers. Default client headers can be overriden.

$clientBuilder = new \Akeneo\Pim\ApiClient\AkeneoPimClientBuilder(
    ['headers' => ['X-HEADER-NAME' => 'content']]
$client = $clientBuilder->buildAuthenticatedByToken('token');


Do note that you have to delete the composer.lock because Doctrine dependencies are loaded. These dependencies are different in function of the PHP version running composer install.

# Build the project
make dependencies

# Run PHPUnit tests
make unit

# Run PHPSpec tests
make spec

# Run code style check
make cs

# ... or directly run all tests
make tests


The support of this client is made in best effort by our Akeneo team.
