While attempting to update a VM category via the prism central API, we are getting a 409 response saying:
'message': 'Edit conflict: please retry change. Entity CAS version mismatch.',
It seems to be occurring on only one VM as all others seem to update normally. I can clear it by updating the VM through the gui, however once I try and do it via API I get that error.
Any thoughts on what could be going on with this VM?

Found the solution. You have to make sure that the value is set:
Oddly enough, this value doesn’t show up when you pull the config of a VM, so you don’t know if it’s ever set or not. It appears to be a hidden value but in order to utilize the categories mapping so that you can have multiple category:values set, you need to make sure that it is set to True.
