category_idintThe category identifier to be provided for updates. Should be left blank when creating a new category.
namevarchar(200)Category name
parent_idintThe parent category identifier obtained previously at the output of the addCategory method. Categories should be added starting from the hierarchy root so that the child is always added after the parent (you need to know the parent ID to add the child). For the top level category, 0 should be given as parent_id.
