10 Review(s)

Description

Magento 2 Akeneo Connector: With the help of this extension, you can connect your Magento store with the Akeneo PIM (Product Information Management) platform and manage thousands of products quickly. Once you import all the catalog data in Akeneo, you can push that data into the Magento 2 store. It works with simple, configurable, and virtual types of products. The store owner can import information about the categories, attributes, configurable variations, attribute family, and much more.

Please Note -

 Highlighted Features

Once the products are exported from Akeneo, you can do any changes as you require. Go to Catalog>Products and Edit any exported product.

 Send Multiple Images

Export multiple images of a product from Akeneo.

 Export Configurable Products

You can create a product with multiple options and export it as a configurable product

 Filter Products for Export

If you don't want to export all the products, you can use various filters using category, SKU, time condition, completeness, attribute family

 Select Attributes to Export

You can select which product attributes you want to export with the products at the time of export job

 Create Cron Job

You can decide when you want to do the exporting process, set up a cron job or manually execute the export process.

 Export Content in Multi-Language

You can export your content (description, short description, labels, etc.) in multiple languages such as English, German, Spanish, etc.

 Execution Details

When an export job is running, you can see the progress on the screen and check any errors as well.

 What is Akeneo PIM & why do I need it?

Akeneo PIM will allow you to gather all your product information in one single place, enrich it and spread it to several channels like an e-commerce website like Magento store, a mobile application like Mobikul Native Apps. You can store and export product information like name, description, technical information like characteristics, material, logistics information like a product’s size, weight and media information like images.

  • Export bulk product data
  • Update product information on multiple channels
  • Supports multiple languages
  • Send product image

GraphQL API - Magento 2.3 Feature

GraphQL is an open-source data query and manipulation language which administers the queries at runtime by using Type System. Magento 2.3 implements GraphQL as an alternative to the traditional approach like SOAP/REST for custom frontend development, including headless storefronts and PWAs.

After implementing GraphQL in our Magento2 Akeneo connector, we can import only updated data from Magento.

  • With GraphQL, there is no need for versioning like REST. It is possible to add or update a new field without affecting the existing application. 
  • A user can get organized results with a single query that defined in the typed schema.
  • GraphQL provides faster and more efficient results.

Asynchronous and Bulk Web API - Magento 2.3 Feature

Now the Magento 2.3 works over the Asynchronous API. Asynchronous API enables the process of bulk requests asynchronously without waiting for the response from the server.

Bulk Web API is established on the rest principle and used for loading or deleting a large amount of data. Magento2.3 works over Message Queue (RabbitMQ) which is a protocol that helps to execute the Web API Asynchronously and complete the task at the backend.

After implementing the Asynchronous and Bulk Web API, we can export the product in the queue and reduce the payload of bulk requests.

  • It includes separate status APIs that checks the status of each request.
  • Provide more efficient and scalable implementations that eliminate round-trip network overhead.

 Product Attribute Mapping

A product attribute is the characteristics of the product that gives information about the product and change the consumer purchase decision. Product attribute is like size and description, color, weight, and price.

You can mention the detail information about the product in Akeneo and map the Akeneo attributes fields with Magento2 product fields so that information synchronized correctly.

  • Sync Magento2 field mapping with Akeneo attributes
  • A user can mention any fixed value for the exported products
  • Map additional product fields

Data Filter

Data filtering is used in Akeneo PIM for the taking out information that is not much necessary for the user. You can filter the data with the help of Channel, Locales, and Attributes.

  • Channel – You can select the channel like E-commerce, Mobile, and ERP where you want to export the data.
  • Locales – You can send the product information in Multiple locales.
  • Attribute –You can filter the attribute that you want to export from Akeneo to Magento 2.

Product Filter

Product filtering allows the users to refine product while exporting from the Akeneo to Magento2. You can filter the product with Family, Status, Completeness, Time condition and Category.

  • Family – You can select the product family which is indicating similar products. 
  • Status – You can Filter the product by status. Like- Enable, Disable.
  • Completeness - You can filter products with product completeness.
  • Time Condition – You can filter the product with time like - Updated product from since this date.
  • Category – You can filter the product with product category and sub-categories.

Export Multiple Images

Product images are essential when you are selling stuff online. Using this module, all the product images are exported to the Magento 2 store. You can export multiple pictures with high resolution.

When you export the images then exported product images go to the same folder and same format to the Magento2 store.

  • You can send multiple images
  • You can limit the size of an image 
  • Send high-resolution images

Export Categories

Categories help to export the products which are similar. You can choose single or multiple categories for the export process. A product can be classified into one or more categories.

If you made changes in one category, then you can export only that category.

  • You can export the categories as such as in Akeneo
  • You can filter the categories

Export Product Variants

You can export the product and variants product in Akeneo to Magento 2. You can create a product model in Akeneo and add information about its variants such as color, size.

When the product is exported to the Magento 2 store, the product variant attributes and information are also exported and mapped on the Magento store. The variant product inherits all the properties of the products information.

  • Export variant product image
  • Variant product inventory
  • Auto-sync option names and option values

Export SEO Information

You can send search engine listing information with your products. We know SEO is crucial for getting maximum visibility and traffic to your website. SEO provides higher brand credibility and take your business next level. You can mention the following information about a product:

  • Meta URL key 
  • Meta Title
  • Meta keyword
  • Meta Description

Sync Multiple Stores

If you are managing multiple Magento2 stores, you can connect them with Akeneo and do product synchronization simultaneously. At the time of export, you can mention your Magento2 store credentials where the products will be created.

  • Send product data to multiple stores 
  • You can select various stores for exporting the products

Import From Magento 2

Magento 2 Akeneo Connector, now allows you to import your product catalog data from Magento 2 to Akeneo also. Magento 2 Import Product job profile is available which will enable you to import products, variations, categories, attributes, options, and much more data from your shop to your Akeneo.

  • Product with variations can be imported
  • Configure imported product attributes

Product Association Mapping

Associativity of the products means a group of product that is closely related. An associative product can be the product with the same types, same price range, and same customer types. In this connector, we are providing three types of association mapping:

  • Cross-sell products - Cross-selling of the product involves the product with the same kind.
  • Upsell Products - Upsell products typically involve trading up to a better version of what’s being purchased.

Congratulations to Webkul for the great product and the great team.
We have been using the Magento 2 Akeneo connector from Webkul for several weeks. It is a new product, But Webkul's support is very dedicated and solved all problems within a few hours. Even if the problems were not caused by the extension but by Akeneo, Magento or the user (us), the support always found a solution.

We have never experienced such excellent and outstanding support!

Congratulations to Webkul for the great product and the great team.

Easy, innovatieve and great solution for Akeneo 2+ and Magento 2+
We're using Akeneo 2+ Community and Magento 2.2 (Enterprise/Commerce). Therefore I was searching for an connection to sync the productdata. There a few extenstions on the market but it's most of the time working by CSV import/export. Which I think is really the old way of syncing this amount of data.

Then I founded this extension for Akeneo, which me really supprised me.
- Easy to install on Akeneo.
- Good manual how to install
- Great support from Webkul (sometimes it's a bit hard to get connection with security these days). But we have solved it.

What we have now (not in production yet)
- Akeneo 2.0.7 with this connector
- Magento 2.2 EE/Commerce
- Syncing products(simpel and configurable)/categories/attributes/Sets/options and this all really fast.

I think they made a good extension for Akeneo and Magento and support is fast.And on both sides, the API's getting better and better, this is the future.

Feel free to contact me if you want to have a customer reference.
