Executed query -

SELECT GROUP_CONCAT(parent_id SEPARATOR ',') AS parent_id
FROM catalog_product_super_link AS super_link
WHERE super_link.product_id = 914066

The issue is there are records where "row id" & "entity id" is different. Any thoughts what can be the reason ?

1 Answer 1


The row_id only available in the enterprise edition(Adobe Commerce).There is no rule for row_id and entity_id should be the same or not the same. Most entries have the same row_id and entity_id and some have different enity_id and row_id. So it is not a problem.

Magento 2: What is the difference between the row_id and entity_id in the %_entity tables?

If you are developing a custom extension in Magento EE, keep this in mind, eav tables values are mapped with row_id not entity_id.

Please check this answer for the difference between row_id and entity_id. It is mainly used for content staging.

Example: You want to change a product name for a month. You can schedule that change using the content staging by specifying a different product name for the date range needed. Behind the scenes, Magento will utilize that row_id (among other meta data to support this feature) to store the scheduled change. If a customer visits the site during the time the product name was scheduled to be changed, Magento will end up loading the row_id corresponding to the how the product was scheduled to "look" at that point in time.

  • Thanks for the answer, could you please also add in which situation the enity_id and row_id are different ?

    @devhs Please check the example again, we can understand new row_id will be added when we added schedule(content staging), here is the point, row_id and entity_id is differing. Commented Jun 16, 2021 at 11:49
