Under the system->data transfer->import, is this feature supports configurable products import? I downloaded the sampledata link, there is no configurable product inside.

Try to create a configurable product and its two simple products then export the products csv. You will get to know which columns and rows are in configurable products.

It will be like this:

  • Upload the image files to the default folder for importing product images: pub/media/import May 17, 2018 at 8:40

I got annoyed by it too and figured out a way to do it, just not the importing of the attributes itself.

Make the attribute values -> Add a column with your Attribute code in the import doc -> Match the values with each other -> import

Example: I made attribute with options that are sizes; "1 x 1mm, 1 x 2mm, 2 x 2mm," Attribute code is made_up_size

Now in the import doc just add another COLUMN with the same name you gave your attribute code, so mine is: made_up_size, with the rows below like:

  • row 1: 1 x 1mm
  • row 2: 1 x 2mm
  • row 3: 2 x 2mm
