This request  '?rt=a/product/category&category_id=84' should work

1. Check that your subcategories are enabled and have products, and finally in the right store (if you have multiple)

2. If #1 is correct, check in the file
storefront/controller/api/product/category.php

Check if you get to line #77 then you request. Below code should be executed.
Code: [Select]
if ($category_info['total_products']) {
        $category_info['subcategories'] = $this->getCategories( $category_id );

}
