How to create product variants via csv import in odoo8?

on 10/15/14, 3:27 PM 1,596 views

I have a list of attributes per product template.

What would be the structure of a csv file to create a product with variants. 

I just need the name, type, ean (per variant) and 1 attribute (color). I dont understand the structure of a product. When I export a template or a list of variants there is no field with attribute value per variant instead it is all values of a template in every row.

Hi, did you get feedback on this question? Thanks

You need more than 1 step.

First I imported the attributes with the corresponding values

This csv would import an attribute 'color' with 2 colors and there hex code. Name and type only in the first row.




Now you can create a product with variants



If you want to add for example an EAN to the variants you would have to export the variants now, add the EAN and reimport.
