I have been using Magento EE 2.1.7 and trying to import a configurable product with 2 attributes: shoe size and shoe width.

I manually created 1 configurable with several simple and exported those for a template to create more.

When importing from a csv it's only adding one of the configurable options.

I have tried several variations in the column configurable_variations.

If I try to add both attributes I get an error on import. If I leave this like export it only adds one option.

So how to import a configurable product with 2 or more attributes.


  • which variation you have tried let me know. Sep 1, 2017 at 10:37
  • I did get this to work, I also found someone created a simple module to export properly. I will update later with full details.

I did get this to work. I also found a module someone else made that exports the configurable_variations. I also found that when exporting full catalog it was leaving that column out all together, but exporting in smaller batches it would work better. tonight I will also add a sample csv here and link to module.
