Import Options

Allowed Import Actions

  • Create or Update as neccessary
  • Only create new records
  • Only update existing records

Dry Run (validate data only)

If Yes, no data will actually be imported, but the import file will be validated and errors will be logged.

Auto-import image files

If Yes, will attempt to import image files from directory specified in System > Configuration > RapidFlow > Default Dirs > Images Dir.

If the configuration is relative, imported file location will be used, i.e. by default var/urapidflow/import/images.

Some predefined variables can be used, such as {var} and {media} for common Magento folders.

To use default Magento's original imported image files location, use {media}/import.

The Products data type can import only images that are associated with product attributes, like image, small_image, thumbnail. To import gallery images, use Products Extra data type profile.

Download remote HTTP images

If the images attribute contain http or https URL:

  • No - Save raw URL in image product attributes. It is template developer's responsibility to make it work on frontend.
  • Yes - Attempt to download the images into Magento's media folder during import.

Allow changing product type and attribute set for existing products

  • No - Default Magento functionality, Attribute Sets and Product Types can't be changed for existing products.
  • Yes - Allow overriding Attribute Sets and Product Types for existing products.

Allow internal values for dropdown attributes

  • No - Only text values of the dropdown attributes will be allowed to be imported. Ex. “Yes”, “No”, “Blue”, “XXL”
  • Yes - If the imported file was exported by Magento DataFlow, some attributes or categories can use internal numeric IDs. In that case use this option to allow import.

If store values the same as default...

In case the profile is for non admin store, and the imported attribute value equals to the admin (default) value:

  • Use default values - Do not create special value for the store level, and use default.
  • Create the values for store level - Set the same value for the store level and do not use default.

If stock qty is 0, mark product as Out of stock

  • No - Do not change stock status, if imported stock quantity is 0.
  • Yes - Update stock status, if imported stock quantity is 0.

Auto-Create Missing Values

Attribute Option Values

If Yes, create dropdown options for attributes that do not have yet this option. For example, if the column (attribute) is Color and new value is Blue and it doesn't exist yet for this attribute, it will be automatically created. Case insensitive and trims white spaces.

Attribute Sets

If Yes, will create product attribute sets which do not exist yet, using the attribute set selected in option below as a template.
