I find myself doing the same changes on my products again and again. Very often, the same products end up reverting product descriptions to what they where before I changed them, or even keep deactivating themselves.

How can this make any sense?

  • Do the updates still exists in the backend of magento? as in if you updated a products description in the magento backend its still there? – rob3000 Oct 16 '15 at 9:45
  • Nope. They're completely gone.. – user2806026 Oct 16 '15 at 9:55
  • sounds like an import cron is running somewhere on your system, or a colleague isn't being funny, or you're going nuts, or just ... cache? – Julien Lachal Oct 16 '15 at 13:53
  • Thanks. What's the easiest way to see all scheduled cron jobs? – user2806026 Oct 19 '15 at 7:15

What you describe is technically not possible - by magento itself, because there is no history, revert or whats'o'ever. When you change something, the old data is gone.

Are you sure it is not your import of product data, a backup or something else which changes this?

Maybe a colleague is changing it?

Firegento wrote a module to monitor all activities in the backend: FireGento_AdminMonitoring maybe this helps

  • Hmm. Thanks for clarifying that it shouldn't be possible. Is it possible that my dataflow profiles or magmi profiles are running themselves? – user2806026 Oct 16 '15 at 10:10
  • Don't know magmi but afaik is dataflow not automatically run by cron somehow - but it can be configured or implemented of course. – Fabian Blechschmidt Oct 16 '15 at 10:58

In Magento,product data does not save at history,So if you have tried revert back value of product attribute again the old once then it would not be possible.

Once thing you can do, create a custom module and with a db table. And using magento event/observer save the old attribute data's at table

  • I am not sure I understand. I have not tried to revert anything - but I made a lot of changes in product descriptions yesterday and verified afterwards that everything was changed correctly. When I look at the products to day, maybe half of them has the descriptions they had before I changed them yesterday. – user2806026 Oct 16 '15 at 9:32
