Print added line item

Hello,

its connecting question with this thread

https://community.clover.com/questions/26451/line-item-not-creating-on-live-mode-using-rest-apu.html?childToView=26471#answer-26471




  string tokenUrl = String.Format("https://api.clover.com/v3/merchants/<MID>/orders/<OrderId>/line_items?access_token=<accesstoken>");

                var client = new RestClient(tokenUrl);

                    var request = new RestRequest(Method.POST);
                    request.AddHeader("content-type", "application/json");
                  
                    request.AddParameter("application/json", "{\"printed\":false,\"exchanged\":\"false\",\"refunded\":\"false\",\"refund\":{\"transactionInfo\":{\"isTokenBasedTx\":\"false\",\"emergencyFlag\":\"false\"}},\"isRevenue\":\"false\",\"name\":" + itemproductname + ",\"price\":" + price + ",\"unitQty\":" + qty + "}", ParameterType.RequestBody);
                  
                    IRestResponse response = client.Execute(request);

1. the above thread is solved and now line item is creating

2. in the above thread in end point there is field printed=false (this is by default)

3. does it mean when I create new line item and if status is false it will create auto print


Please advice

I am not sure what that flag indicates. However, it is not something you can set and expect action on (setting it to true, won't have any affect regarding automatically printing or not printing). If you want to print orders on the device automatically you will need to have an application on the Clover device.

hello,

Please guide me what kind of application I need on clover device?

You would need to build an Android app that would be installed on the device. The app will likely listen for a notification that you send from your server and then print the order - https://community.clover.com/questions/751/printing-online-orders-using-cloversdk-to-kitchen.html. Unfortunately, this is not a trivial task.

do you have any reference point to start with.

The printed flag is something that the device sets when it prints the line item (for the purposes of a kitchen receipt). It's used to add some workflow and authentication around re-printing kitchen items to avoid them being prepared multiple times, inadvertently.

Don't set it yourself. It's something that's really for internal use, but ended up in the public documentation.
