I've created a command which saves a number of products using

// \Magento\Catalog\Api\Data\ProductInterface


// \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface

Is there a way of telling the magento 2 api to only save if the product doesn't exist? I have almost 500,000 products which I don't want to re-import each time.

Just checking this is the correct way to do it too - because its SUPER slow.


Try to use this code below:

if (!$productRespository->get($product->getSku())) {

This code will check the product which has the SKU. Hope it help!
