Is there an API endpoint for replacing a list of catalog Category relationships on an item?
From my reading of the API docs its looks like you have to build your own system for checking if your item is still in a catalog Category then delete it if its not. E.g. API call to get relationships, then API call to check if the relationships are still valid, then API call to delete the non relevent categories, then API call to update with Current relationships.
It would be much simpler if you could just add a paramater to https://developers.klaviyo.com/en/reference/update_catalog_item and https://developers.klaviyo.com/en/reference/spawn_update_items_job that allows you to specify to“Replace” current catalog category relationships with the relationships in this API call.
Am I reading the API docs correctly or is there a hidden way to do this?

I’ve done further testing and it looks like maybe the https://developers.klaviyo.com/en/reference/update_catalog_item API call is doing a replace when you have a relationships array in the API call.
Can anyone confirm this? it isn’t directly documented in the API docs.
I don’t believe that this is part of the current API functionality, but I will certainly check with Engineering to confirm and then update the thread.
Just heard back from Engineering on this, and here’s what I’ve gathered:
I will also make a suggestion to our Documentation team to include more specifics and examples in the docs so that this is more clear, but I hope this helps to clarify!
