Hi Dave,

Thanks for tonight’s “Happy Hour”, I find great value in it!

As discussed, I have tried everything to get my product visibility changed via magmi import, both for simple and configurable products.
Whenever I import or update via magmi, every attribute is changed except for “visibility”.

I am uploading the csv files I’m using, but here’s what I’ve done so far:
-Double checked spelling for column header “visibility” – without the inverted commas of course :)
-Double checked spelling for “Catalog”, “Search”, “Not Visible Individually” – also without the inv commas
-Tested the “force simples visibility” setting under Configurable Item Processor
Any option other than “no” forces the visibility accordingly, having it set to “no” defaults all simple products to “Catalog, Search”
regardless of what is set in the csv. (The other 2 settings in this section are both “Yes”)

-Tested upload of a single, simple product – Same behaviour…stuck on “Catalog, Search”

-Tested changing the value in back-end – works correctly
-Column mapper in Magmi is not enabled, but I believe that has different functionality than what is required here.

-Two extensions I installed recently are CUSTOM INVOICE NUMBERS by Save The Mage + Simple Configurable Products extension.
However, I reverted to backups of Magento prior to any of these being installed – no change in behaviour, so I reverted back to them
being installed.

I cannot think of anything else that might have an influence, but I have a feeling it must be some small setting or error.
**Hoping it wasn’t me misspelling after checking more than 20 times!

I really hope you or Matt can help me get to the bottom of this.
PS: Will post a new topic on the other issue as you suggested.

Hi VideoGuy,

I don’t know if this will help, but I normally use the number value that represents the text rather than the text string in this field, on my system this is as follows,

Field name = visibility

Not Visible Individually = 1
Catalog, Search = 4

Seems to work for me, although the values may be different in your system so worth checking by right clicking on the normally product entry box to find the correct numbers.

Huge drumroll…

Quickly tested all the options…And like magic, it just works!

Thanks a stack Pete, I knew it had to be something simple.

So for anyone’s reference, the way to go for column “visibility” is as follows:
1 = Not Visible Individually
2 = Catalog
3 = Search
4 = Catalog, Search

Don’t you just love these forums!

Hi Kevin,

Does the import work if you try any of the other numbers or not?

Hello, I have Magento 1.9.3.2 installed and I am having a similar problem to the first poster.

I have a Magento extension which requires the configurable product to have a visibility status of “Catalog”, two simple products (which represent colour options) to have a status of “Catalog, Search” and the rest of the simple products to have a status of “Not Visible Individually”.

I have tried the written text, plus the number codes but get results varying from all the products being visible to the configurable product being visible (which I don’t want) and all the simple products not being visible (when I want two of them – which represent available colours – to be)

Could someone please tell me how the Configurable Item processor v1.3.7 should be configured to achieve my aims?

Many thanks

Hello there Anne. Please see the thread on our forum here: https://understandinge.com/forum/all-things-coding/magmi-import-error-warning-invalid-argument/ and see if it helps. There are solutions there that might be applicable to your situation. It would be good also to see the solutions provided by Matt there.
