I've imported products with the build in importer. Since then a lot of products are only reachable via the long url's.


But when i check in the backend both as default value as for the storeview a url key is filled in. (also in the url's "product-name" element)

tried re-indexing, refreshing cache. but no result. when adding a product by hand we do not seem to have this issue.

Update: 28 jul 2016: After a lot of trying things out, there is still a issue with this. I did a clean install of 2.1 After playing around i got all urls working (import / exporting and so on) A huge issue was that the urls where not added to the main store but only to the store view)

Anyone more experience with this issue?

Creating the url by hand in the backend (marketing->url management) seem to solve it. but thats horrible work.

Edit, i have found some more information. We have a site with multiple storeviews, i notice that our first store has problems with the url. when i search the url key in the url_rewrite database i do find the url for all store's (2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) excpect for store. 1.

Should't there be a store 0 url key ??

You have imported product, but you have not created url_key for all product magento uses 301 redirect rule try to add url_key as well and try again
