I have used the Data Migration Tool and now am cleaning my migrated attribute sets, wanting to remove attributes that dont make sense. My attribute sets have many groups called Migrated_ and a few attribute groups which are original, but most of them contain very little. I suspect that if an attribute was in my migration, it is in my migrated groups and not in the original default group it should be.

I obviously don't want to remove attributes that are used by functionality and I would also move the

But somehow as a result of running the tool, the Default attribute set has only 5 attributes in it. That's clearly not right!

I have been looking around the documentation for even a set of screenshots that would show me the contents of the default attribute set but can only find the top bit. It's frustrating.

Sure, I can install another M2 somewhere or try to reverse-figure from old SQL and code but maybe there's a reference somewhere that shows the attributes?


I have attached screenshots of Product attributes with default attribute sets.

  • that's what I need, only probably one or two more to see whats below the scroll. I'm missing many of these attributes altogether, that's worrying! – iphigenie May 3 '19 at 11:28
  • Do you want to check attributes from Content group also? – Kazim Noorani May 3 '19 at 11:31
  • the whole set for this - content, prices, inventory It's becoming clear that the data migration tool still cannot be trusted :S – iphigenie May 3 '19 at 11:35
  • I have updated the answer. Added new screenshots. Request to approve and upvote the answer. Thank you. – Kazim Noorani May 3 '19 at 11:40
  • Thanks! I'm probably not the only one affected - now I have to go figure out what the official data migration tool has done and help it get fixed – iphigenie May 3 '19 at 11:42
