Guys: Need some advice on assigning products to categories on magmi import for multiple root catalog. Magmi is now working well again and starting to add images to spreadhseet. I am down to related/upsell products and focusing on categories, websites, and stores.
I realize the tutuorial series only speaks about one store view, one root catalog. I am hoping this is an easy answer for you guys as Magmi is working and I have taken specific screenshots. I have read all the info on github, understande, and blinkdata but must be missing some easy.
Can you explain what specific text I should be using to get product to assign to specific website and category. It’s line item #10 on .csv screenshot. The only reason I have changed store value is due to what I have read to get to put product in different root catalog. Getting same “cannot find site root with names ” Magmi error no matter weather I include website column or not and change store value from “admin” to locksetstop_en”.
Can I set website, store, and category in Magmi and what value do I need from my setup. The 4 screenshots should show all the areas involved.
For the websites: include each website the product needs to be assigned to with the code, separated with a comma. For both websites as shown in the picture, the entry would be: “base, locksetstop_com”. Magmi will then add the product to both websites.
For each category the product needs to be added to, enter the categorie ID. E.g. in your case closet_hardware would be 347. Separated with a comma (if that is the separator configured in Magmi… Then ensure everything is enclosed in ” ”
“sku_1″,”73, 200, 84″,”website1_com, website2_com”, etc
Bob: Thank you!
I could not get to work and tried several variations. The store column is set to admin in the example spreadsheets. When I changed that to match actual store view everything worked perfectly on my test products.
Worked without the “quotes” as well. I had removed them when it wasn’t working thinking trying to troubleshoot. Thanks again for the help.
A quick note, the “websites” column is obsolete and the “store” should be used.
This changed ages ago (before our tutorials, hence why thats not in them), see here http://wiki.magmi.org/index.ph…..w_products
