I'm running a script that bootstraps Magento to bulk-edit some products programmatically.

At the moment, this is done like so:

ini_set('display_errors', 1);

use Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;
require __DIR__ . '/app/bootstrap.php';

$bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);

$objectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();
$state = $objectManager->get(Magento\Framework\App\State::class);

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance(); 

$productCollectionFactory = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory');
$collection = $productCollectionFactory->create();
$products = $collection->addAttributeToSelect('paid_shipping')->load();

foreach($products as $product){

While this successfully updates the products, the customizable options all disappear. Why does this happen? How can I avoid this?

  • Can you confirm your magento 2 full version? – Dava Gordon Aug 22 '19 at 21:51
  • @DavaGordon -- 2.3.2 – brackfost Aug 23 '19 at 12:40

Note that calling Magento\Framework\Model\AbstractModel::save() directly has been deprecated since Magento 2.1.10 (see https://github.com/magento/magento2/blob/2.1.10/lib/internal/Magento/Framework/Model/AbstractModel.php#L629).

I have tested saving product using Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository::save($product) and your issue did not happen.

Try updating the way you save product using this code:

 * @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository $productRepository

  • Thanks for the info, will give it a shot tomorrow. – brackfost Aug 26 '19 at 3:17
  • Hi @RendyEkoPrastiyo this works, thank you! Any idea why the tax class isn't updated when I use $product->setTaxClassId(2); $productRepository->save($product); ? – brackfost Aug 28 '19 at 20:35

    It should also be updated, as tested in Magento vanilla, there must be observer(s) or plugin(s) from external module(s) that handle or modify the tax class upon saving the product. – Rendy Eko Prastiyo Feb 18 at 3:44
