How can I add a category programatically ?

In postman are examples how to add category into a catalog or how to add a subcategory.

When I am calling AddCategory I am receiving next exception:

{
    "@odata.context": "https://localhost:5000/Api/$metadata#Commands/$entity",
    "@odata.type": "#Sitecore.Commerce.EntityViews.Commands.DoActionCommand",
    "Id": "cd8621751643493f9a0a860db2e98a85",
    "ResponseCode": "Error",
    "Messages": [
        {
            "MessageDate": "2018-05-04T08:29:55.7725232Z",
            "Code": "ValidationError",
            "Text": "Action has failed due to Optimistic Concurrency failure.",
            "CommerceTermKey": "OptimisticConcurrencyFailure"
        }
    ],
    "Models": [],
    "ActionUrl": null
}

I am doing a PUT call to {{ServiceHost}}/{{ShopsApi}}/DoUxAction()

This are my headers:

Content-Type:application/json
ShopName:{{ShopName}}
ShopperId:{{ShopperId}}
Language:{{Language}}
Currency:{{Currency}}
Environment:{{Environment}}
GeoLocation:{{GeoLocation}}
CustomerId:{{CustomerId}}
Authorization:{{SitecoreIdToken}}

This is my body :

I got this error because of Version parameter which I add it into Body call.

{
            "Name": "Version",
            "Policies": [],
            "DisplayName": "Version",
            "Value": "2",
            "IsHidden": true,
            "OriginalType": "System.Int32",
            "IsReadOnly": true,
            "UiType": "",
            "IsRequired": true
        }

You need to pass the right version into Body, is not documented why we need this parameter.

How to get the right version ?

You need to get all catalogs using a rest call.

enter image description here

You have the Version value in the json result for every catalog :

        {
            "CompositeKey": null,
            "DateCreated": "2018-05-06T17:41:38.3000725Z",
            "DateUpdated": "2018-05-06T18:57:14.8980297Z",
            "DisplayName": "Postman Catalog11111",
            "FriendlyId": "PostmanCatalog11111",
            "Id": "Entity-Catalog-PostmanCatalog11111",
            "Version": 6,
            "IsPersisted": true,
            "Name": "PostmanCatalog11111",
            "Policies": [],
            "SitecoreId": "f9505e96-72de-c413-50aa-b00b13277142",
