Hello,

I`m using SOAP API v2 to insert categories in my store.

As I have external software for shop stock availability where I manage categories (names, translations, images).

I need category_id from my stock software to be the same as the ID from magento store category table. This is because on next update, if I have changed something in my stock database, related to categories, the same to be changed on magento store database.

How can I do this?

As nobody replied in time and this was urgent, I made something else. I`m writing it here just for the next person in need of the same.

I created a separate database where I save relations between my database`s ID and magento`s database ID. On the next update, I just check this table and if it exists, I update the category. If not, I create new category.

Hope this helps someone.
