Create Channels

Why Create a Channel?

When working within your network, you may find it necessary to create a new channel to the network. The Kevel Inventory Management API enables you to add a new channel to the network using the Create Channels API endpoint.

By default, an All Sites channel is created with the network, which cannot be deleted. The result includes the unique Channel ID that can be used to update or remove the channel.

API Syntax

When using the Create Channels API endpoint it is important to understand the syntax required to make the request. Because the Kevel API is a RESTful API, there is a specific request format that must be followed to ensure the endpoint can process the request. The format is:



  • POST - the type of API request being made.
  • - the URL for the request.
  • v1 - the API version.
  • channel - the API endpoint being called.



Make sure to set Engine to 0 in all requests.
