Add New Item To All Stores Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 03 November 2017 - 10:53 PM #1

If we have many storefronts and want to add a new item to all of them, can this be done automatically or via the API?

 

If there are 20 storefronts it would be a ton of manual work to add 10 new products and select the category for each of them as described on this page: http://docs.cs-cart....gurable-sharing

 

It doesn't even look like an admin for the individual stores can add the product themselves since the stores can't see the product until a global admin user has added it to a category for them.

Сartrover-will, there is a Import / Export feature that is presented in CS-Cart by default. Using it, you can upload/edit bulk data import and export in the CSV format. 
 
To import or export data, go to Administration → Import data or Administration → Export data respectively.
 
Please check the following article in our User Guide for details:
 
 

Kindly note, that an admin of a certain store can add products to his store.

 
I hope this is helpful.

 Sincerely yours,

You can add secondary category via import from CSV as my colleague suggested or use CS-Cart API to interact with a store (http://docs.cs-cart..../api/index.html)

Will it work if secondary category belongs to another store-front?

Yep, you just need to perform import under All stores mode

 

Here is an example of the CSV file:

Product code;Language;Product id;Category;Store;Secondary categories
"U0012O5AF0";"en";"12";"Apparel///Men's Clothing";"store1";"store2:Apparel///Men's Clothing"

where product belongs to store1 and store2 is the name of the second storefront
