This package is abandoned and no longer maintained. The author suggests using the akeneo/api-php-client package instead.

Akeneo PIM ENTERPRISE client for the API

v7.0 2022-02-01 15:40 UTC


TL;DR: Please use api-php-client instead.

This Enterprise Edition project is now merged into the main api-php-client project.
This allows easier maintainability by avoiding many duplications.

Migrate to main package

Switch the dependency

In composer.json, switch the dependency to the main akeneo/api-php-client package.
The main package start supporting EE features from v8.0.0.

  "require": {
    "akeneo/api-php-client": "^8.0.0"

Rename uses

The only breaking change is the namespace uniformization that will break use statements:
Akeneo\PimEnterprise was renamed to Akeneo\Pim

You can use this command to rename all your use statements in your project:

find -name '*.php' -exec sed -i 's/PimEnterprise/Pim/g' {} +
# You can add a path as first argument


A simple PHP client to use the Akeneo PIM API with the Enterprise Edition.

Matrix compatibility:

PIM EE version(s) API PHP Client EE 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 - v3.1 v4.0 Build Status
v3.2 - v4.0 v5.0 Build Status
v5.0 v6.0 -
v6.0 v7.0 -
- master -

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 >= 7.4
  • 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-ee uses Composer. The first step to use api-php-client-ee is to download composer:

$ curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Then, run the following command to require the library:

$ php composer.phar require akeneo/api-php-client-ee 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\PimEnterprise\ApiClient\AkeneoPimEnterpriseClientBuilder('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:


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'],


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.

cp docker-compose.yml.dist docker-compose.yml
rm -rf composer.lock vendor/
docker-compose run client_72 composer install
docker-compose run client_72 bin/phpunit -c phpunit.xml.dist
docker-compose run client_72 bin/phpspec run
docker-compose run client_72 bin/php-cs-fixer fix --diff --dry-run --config=.php_cs.php -vvv


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

If you find a bug or want to submit an improvement, don't hesitate to raise an issue on Github. Also, you can ask questions and discuss about the PHP client with the community in the Slack User Group.
