Custom property on Category not showing in API


I'm quite new to the B2B Commerce product, but I'm trying to add a custom property to the Category entity,

I created the property in Application Dictionary and added this to the Category Entity.

After that I gave the Api access to read and/or modify the field

I would expect the field to show in the api result now, but it is not using the API tester (/api/v1/admin/categories/4c79829c-b898-4900-9df5-9f0100d24dbd)

What am I missing here?

to show custom properties in the api test you need to add $expand url parameter
in your case the url should be /api/v1/admin/categories/4c79829c-b898-4900-9df5-9f0100d24dbd?$expand=customProperties

I am the Magento developer 2.1.3  version I'm using. While creating a category, I added a customized variable customer- group. It's providing a text field to enter a group of customers on my localhost. However, the text form to enter the group of customers is not visible on the server.

The customer group has been successfully generated as a database field in both localhost and webserver environments. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Also given full permission to the folder. Please see the two windows below.
