This type contains an eBay category and an array of aspects of that category that can be used to narrow down the collection of product summaries returned by the search call. Aspects are product attributes that can represent different types of information for different products.

Important: The AspectFilter type provides the underlying data structure for the aspect_filter parameter, which combines a category and one or more aspects of that category in a single string. However, this type is not used directly in the call.
