Describe the bug
Versions: wc 3.5.0, wp 4.7.14 php 7.2

I'm working on implementing partial order refunds through Rest API (using ruby client). According to the documentation I can specify line items which I want to refund. I've tried with different data but I always got empty(empty array) line_items field in the response. Then I created a new order and made a refund via the UI. It works. I copied data from this refund, created a new one, changed id's in the copied data and tried to refund the new order through API but it doesn't work.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create a new order and pay for it but a payment method that supports an automatical refund (I did it with PayPal sandbox), wait for the confirmation from PayPal.
  2. Try to refund one of the line items via Rest API using the structure from the documentation above.
  3. Check line_items field of created refund
  4. See an empty array

Example body:

  "amount": "25.00",
  "reason": "",
  "refunded_payment": true,
  "meta_data": [],
  "line_items": [
      "name": "Long Sleeve Tee",
      "product_id": 68,
      "variation_id": 0,
      "quantity": -1,
      "tax_class": "",
      "subtotal": "-25.00",
      "subtotal_tax": "0.00",
      "total": "-25.00",
      "total_tax": "0.00",
      "taxes": [],
      "meta_data": [
          "key": "_refunded_item_id",
          "value": "114"
      "sku": "woo-long-sleeve-tee",
      "price": 25

I'm doing a post request with this body to /orders/:order_id/refunds.

Expected behavior
It creates a refund that contains a non-empty line_items field.


That's how the order should look like from UI

But it looks like that:

P.S. I've also found a similar 2 years old issue but without an answer.
