IMporting Configurable products
Rob Wood
January 5, 2017 - 1:38 pm


When I import a configurable product the simple products are not associating with the configurable product. Now maybe I have something wrong in my import csv, but before I double checked that, I viewed the Configurable Product that was imported and I got this message:

Only attributes with scope “Global”, input type “Dropdown” and Use To Create Configurable Product “Yes” are available.

THere was Manufacturer and Size as the two tick box options. Size is the variable.

IS there something additional I need in my CSV to import the ‘Global and Dropdown’ to that the import is then associated with the simple products?

** I think I have found the issue **

Just need to figure out why they are not linking! :)
