  • when you want to upload media image you must specify rest of columns. _media_is_disabled is use for unable the media caching system** & default media attribute id is 88 (_media_attibute_id ) , _media_position attribute set image positions, _media_image attribute save the path of gallery images.

  • Thanks for this reply. Getting error _media_attibute_id is invalid. Set it to 88. What it should be? Also i want one image per product. No gallery images for product. Please suggest

The headers need to be base_image small_image thumbnail_image

Just writing thumbnail won't do anything
