Support for CatalogItem duplication

Hello Square!

I did a detail search on the forum and the API references looking for support for CatalogItem duplication but it does not seem like it is currently supported, correct me if I am wrong!

I would like to request for a endpoint to duplicate CatalogItem. The expected behaviour is basically the same behaviour as what the Duplicate button would do under the Actions drop down menu in the Edit Item page on Square Dashboard.

If we can get this function supported, I am sure it’d save us developers a lot of hassle having to dig into the properties and API calls we have to interact with to duplicate items.

:wave: We’re constantly working to improve our features based on feedback like this, so I’ll be sure to share your request to the API product team. Also if you RetrieveCatalogObject for the item you’d like to duplicate then UpsertCatalogObject with thinks like the item_id and item_variation_id removed it’ll create the new item. :slightly_smiling_face:
