Publishing a catalog creates a release of that catalog that you can use in a storefront or other shopper experience. You can retrieve the hierarchies and the products associated with a catalog release. Use the Catalog View API to publish a catalog and to retrieve information.
Currently, published catalogs are limited to one release.
If you defined catalog rules and you want to retrieve a published catalog for a particular channel or a user-defined tag, you must set the appropriate headers in the request:
EP-Channel- The channel, such as website or mobile app. Corresponds to the
channelattribute in a Rule object.
EP-Context-Tag- A tag defined in the store, such as
clearance. Corresponds to the
tagattribute in a Rule object.
The Release object

|The type of object being returned. Always: |
|The name of the release.|
|A description of the node, such as the name of a category.|
|The date and time the release was published.|
|An array of references to the hierarchies in the release.|
