Making HTTP requests to the Shop

Making HTTP requests to the Shop

The SDK offers a simple HTTP client for sending requests to the Shopware server. To utilize it, you will require the Shop entity, which you can obtain by using the shopResolver from the current request. Alternatively, you can use the ShopRepository to obtain the Shop entity by its ID.

$app = new AppConfiguration('Foo', 'test', 'http://localhost:6001/register/callback');
// for a repository to save stores implementing \Shopware\App\SDK\Shop\ShopRepositoryInterface, see FileShopRepository as an example
$repository = ...;

// Create a psr 7 request or convert it (HttpFoundation Symfony)
$psrRequest = ...;

$shopResolver = new \Shopware\App\SDK\Shop\ShopResolver($repository);

$shop = $shopResolver->resolveShop($psrRequest);

$clientFactory = new Shopware\App\SDK\HttpClient\ClientFactory();
$httpClient = $clientFactory->createClient($shop);

$response = $httpClient->sendRequest($psrHttpRequest);

The client will automatically fetch the OAuth2 token for the shop and add it to the request.


The SimpleHttpClient is a wrapper around the PSR18 ClientInterface and provides a simple interface to make requests.

$simpleClient = new \Shopware\App\SDK\HttpClient\SimpleHttpClient\SimpleHttpClient($httpClient);

$response = $simpleClient->get('');
$response->getHeader('Content-Type'); // application/json
$response->ok(); // true when 200 <= status code < 300
$body = $response->json(); // json decoded body
echo $body['version'];

$simpleClient->post('', [
    'entity' => 'product',
    'offset' => 0,
    'total' => 100,
    'payload' => [
            'id' => '123',
            'name' => 'Foo',

// and the same with put, patch, delete


The \Shopware\App\SDK\HttpClient\ClientFactory::factory method accepts as a second argument a PSR18 ClientInterface. So you can overwrite the client with a mock client for testing.

$clientFactory = new Shopware\App\SDK\HttpClient\ClientFactory();
$httpClient = $clientFactory->createClient($shop, $myMockClient);

Next, we will look into the Events.
