I have magento 2.3.4 and trying to append one word to all products. Is it possible to do using standard M2 means or phpmyadmin?

Correction, I only need to append names for items with certain attribute.


You can mass / bulk update the collection of products in multiple ways as given below.

#1 Through Magento Product Import Export from the admin panel

At first export all the products from your store, by using the export option available under the admin menu System - Data Transfer - Export

Then edit the CSV file and update the name column of all the product rows by appending a string/text of your choice to the name column. (there are easy ways to do this in MS Excel)

keep only the sku and name columns and import the csv to get the product names updated

For further reference about Magento2 product import and export, check these links below




#2 Update the product names through a Custom Script

its the quickest and get the job done in a few minutes



require __DIR__ . '/app/bootstrap.php';

$bootstrap = \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);

$ObjectManager = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();

$state = $ObjectManager->get('\Magento\Framework\App\State');

$attributeSetId = 184; 

$_productCollection = $ObjectManager->create('\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Collection')

$_productAction = $ObjectManager->create('\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Action');
$storeId = 1; // change it your store id
$stringToAppend = 'TEST-';

try {
    foreach ($_productCollection as $_product) {
        $productName = $stringToAppend . $_product->getName();
        echo 'Name: ' . $_product->getName() . PHP_EOL; 
        echo 'Name to be changed : ' . $productName . PHP_EOL; 
        $productIds = [];
        $attributeData = [];
        $attributeData['name'] =  $productName;
        $productIds[] = $_product->getId();
        /* it is recommended to use updateAttributes in case of bulk product updates */
        /* You can also use save() which is slower than the above method  */
//        $_product->setName($productName)
//                ->save();
} catch (Exception $ex) {
    echo 'Product Save Exception : ' . $ex->getMessage() . PHP_EOL;

$_productCollectionAfterUpdate = $ObjectManager->create('\Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\Collection')
foreach ($_productCollectionAfterUpdate as $_product) {
    echo 'Name after appending string : ' . $_product->getName() . PHP_EOL; 

Disclaimer: Use of ObjectManager Directly is highly discouraged in a production environment. Inject the dependencies in the respective class instead.

  • thank you, I was looking for that php method. I forgot to mention that it should apply onoy to products with a certain attribute set. $attributeId = 184 – Alex D Feb 12 at 23:09
  • @AlexD updated the answer with attribute set filter, which filters the product collection based on the given attribute set id – Haijerome Feb 14 at 17:07
