Migrated Magento 1 into Magento 2 does not seem to contain any 'default' Magento 2 email templates (using the Magento 2 migration tool). It only contains the Magento 1 email templates that were migrated.

(If this Magento 2 installation had it, I could have used them as reference)

None of the templates variables work in Magento 2 when previewing or emailing.

The following Magento 1 email template (account registration completed):

<!--@subject Welcome, {{var customer.name}}! @-->
{"store url=\"\"":"Store Url",
"var logo_url":"Email Logo Image Url",
"var logo_alt":"Email Logo Image Alt",
"htmlescape var=$customer.name":"Customer Name",
"store url=\"customer/account/\"":"Customer Account Url"}

body,td { color:#2f2f2f; font:11px/1.35em Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; }
<!-- truncated Html just to get to relevant sections @-->
                            <a href="{{store url=""}}"><img src="{{var logo_url}}" alt="{{var logo_alt}}" style="margin-bottom:10px;" border="0"/></a>
                        <td valign="top">
                            <h1>Dear {{htmlescape var=$customer.name}},</h1>
                            <h3>Account Registration successfully completed.</h3>

Results in this : Image show variables, instead of the values

Magento 2 articles found does not mention anything about Magento 1 migrated templates.

I checked the following articles, but mostly they just discuss changes between Magento 2 versions:

None of those assist me in changing Magento 1 variables into Magento 2 versions.


Where / how can I find the equivalent versions.

For instance this template has {{var logo_url}}, {{var logo_alt}}, {{htmlescape var=$customer.name}}

A reference, or a way to browse the code to find the what is the customer/order/email address/etc variables versions of Magento 2.

  • This answer is a copy of answer magento.stackexchange.com/questions/244926/… which I looked at before asking this question. It does not help in my context, I specifically asked where to get variables so that I can convert Magento1 to Magento2 versions, I also mentioned I do not have any Magento 2 templates, this has nothing to do with Magento 1 variables unfortunately, sorry.

  • If you don't have any M2 email templates, chances are you've migrated the wrong way. You can refer to this move. I referenced it when migrating my site and everything is working now mageplaza.com/blog/magento-1-to-magento-2-upgrade.html Commented May 25, 2021 at 4:44
