orocommerce – How do I expose my extended field to the API?

I’ve started using OroCommerce, and wanted to try to extend a native OroCommerce entity to add a field to it.

For testing purposes, I’ve tried adding a “testField” field to the Product entity.

So I’ve created a migration class following the documentation, and that works fine:

class ExtendNativeMigration implements Migration
    public function up(Schema $schema, QueryBag $queries)
        $table = $schema->getTable("oro_product");
        $table->addColumn('testField', "string", (
            "oro_options" => (
                "extend" => ("owner" => ExtendScope::OWNER_CUSTOM)

I now have a “testField” column in the oro_product table.

The problem I’m facing is that I can’t seem to be able to expose that newly-created field to the API.

I created the api.yml file in my bundle, and tried something like this:

          exclude: false

But the field doesn’t appear when I call the products API. I’ve tried other things in the api.yml file, but to no avail.

The field appears when I dump the API config, but it simply says “null”:

    exclusion_policy: all
        testField: null
            exclude: true

I’m probably doing something wrong here, but I’m not sure what.

Can I have some pointers on how to do this correctly? Thank you!
