Issues and Customization

Laurens from Horecaword purchased Akeneo Magento connector. After purchasing this connector, he got some Akeneo configuration issue. He raised the ticket for the issue. Webkul resolves each and every issue efficiently.

Laurens marked the first issue as:

“We are facing some problem with importing and exporting. We are stuck with the screen starting.”

Webkul checked his issue and found that he was getting the issue due to the job-queue daemon. Webkul suggested him to run the daemon command to the Akeneo installation directory.

php bin/console akeneo:batch:job-queue-consumer-daemon

Next time, the issue is raised by the Dominique from Horecaworld. He is facing the issue due to incorrect mapping of product attribute.

“For the testing proposal, we add some custom values like the height, and width of a product the values are filled in Akeneo. For some reason the won’t export to Magento, also the image export to Magento won’t work.”

Custom Attributes

Webkul provides custom attribute mappings in Akeneo Magento connector. Webkul suggests him to export the custom attributes with the help of custom attribute mapping. Now, all the issue had been fixed.

Horecaword had some requirements. They want the customization of the connector to send the product data in admin panel without underscores. They mentioned it on the ticket.

“For some reason, the admin field contains the underscore how can we set up the import that it will import only values without the underscore.”

Webkul first understands the customization and then work on it. Webkul provides an option in the connector to export the option label/option code to Magento.

Magneto PDF Support customization

Horecaword had even more need. After the success of the first customization, they need another customization to send the product files(pdf) along with the products. They raised the requirement over the ticket.

“Default Magento does not provide the file type attribute. Create a file type of the attribute in Akeneo and export the file in Magento1. The jvs_fileattribute extension is installed in Magento1.”

Webkul looked into the requirements. Webkul created an API for Magento1 to export the product files from Akeneo to Magento. The new customization is working fine for Horecaworld.
