List available products for purchase
Either you have a database of products that you need to map to products returned in this API, or you choose to import the product list from this endpoint to your system.
OCTO Cloud has also implemented a self-service mapping capability that substantially reduces the burden of maintaining mappings. We recommend you implement this if you are able to. Click here for the documentation.
