Map Product Fields

Before you import product data, you need to map the headings (attribute categories) or tags in your product data feed to fields in Bronto. Without the mapping, Bronto does not know what product data to import from your file.

About this task

You do not need to map every field in your file. Only map the product attributes you want to import. But if you want to import an attribute, you must map it to a product field. Even attribute headings that exactly match the name of a Bronto field need to be mapped. If you map a field, that field must be found in the product data feed or the import will fail.

Note: If you use a connector to import product data into Bronto, you cannot manually import product data. Therefore, all of the options related to uploading product data are disabled. You can still view product fields and search for product data.

If your product data feed is an XML document, you must map the full tag name, including the prefix.

For a description of the predefined Bronto fields, see Product Field Descriptions.

Tip: At a minimum, the Product ID and Title fields must be mapped in order for your import to be successful.

You can update your mappings at any time. Once you have currently active products, you cannot save changes to this page if you have removed the Product ID or Title required mappings.

To map your fields:

Procedure

  1. Go to Commerce > Products.
  2. Click Map Product Fields
  3. Locate the field you want to map a product attribute to.
    For a description of the predefined Bronto fields, see Product Field Descriptions.
  4. Enter the product attribute heading or tag from your data feed into the relevant Mapping box.
    If the heading in your data feed is an exact match for a Field Label or Field Name, you can use the copy button to copy the label or name into the Mapping box.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have mapped all the attributes you want to import to Bronto fields.
    At a minimum, the Product ID and Title fields must be mapped in order for your import to be successful.
