I can assign multiple products into a category when I am creating a category, but how can I assign a category to multiple products at once?

I have tried to check multiple products in Manage Products and then Update attribues but I cannot edit category from there. I have also tried Manage Categories too.

  • I did everything but i am not getting products under category, please help me. thanking you in advance

  • In your backend, go to Catalog -> Categories -> Manage Categories.
  • Select the category you want to add products to.
  • Click "Category Products" Tab
  • Reset the Filter, select your products, Save Category

  • @zedBlackbeard This is for Magento 1, your questions is for Magento 2

  • I think the way assing multiple products in Magneto 2 is same as Magento 1. Apr 5, 2016 at 11:45

Addition to Erfan's answer:

If there had been no products assigned to category before, there would be no products at all listed under "Category Products" tab.

Reset the Filter - clicking it is a must even when you see blank list (no products assigned). It will then show all products in whole shop.


An easier option would be - Mass Category Assignment, under manage categories. Helps you allot products throught a CSV file.

  • Is that a part of core Magento 1.x, or maybe a 3rd party extension? I don't see that option in May 11, 2017 at 18:11
  • Yes that has got to be a third party extension.
