In Mage_ImportExport_Model_Import_Entity_Product::_saveCustomOptions the custom option type "file" is commented out in product import. If you uncomment it and change 'image_size_x' => 0, to 'image_size_x' => null, and 'image_size_y' => 0, to 'image_size_y' => null, below (following http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/275362/), you can reenable it. I just tested it successfully and was able to import custom options of type "file".

Does anyone know why this isn't enabled by default?

  • I can't understand the history in JIRA so I pinged Piotr. – benmarks Feb 25 '15 at 21:21
  • I don't think this will ever get an answer. Only a core dev may be able to answer it. I will close it for now. If something comes up, please vote to reopen it. – Marius Mar 25 '15 at 15:13
