I have Magento 2.2.8 and need to import lots of products, the problem is with images (I would rather not import all image files, but a reference via link). They are in an external URL and CSV file check complaints:
Imported resource (image) could not be downloaded from an external resource due to timeout or access permissions in a row(s): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Csv has base_images like:
I have also tried adding the external server as the "Images File Directory", however then I get:
Wrong URL/path used for attribute image in a row
So far found: Import image from external url <-- that copies images
Magento 2: Import categories images external url via csv <-- for categories
Can images be linked to that external server?
If not, what workarounds are suggested?
