The most reliable way to export your catalog to Magento 2

Formerly known as "PIMgento 2", the Akeneo Connector for Magento 2 joins Akeneo's ecosystem to help merchants manage and export their catalog data to Magento 2. This Akeneo Connector version leverages the latest API technology to provide seamless integration between Akeneo PIM and Magento Commerce.

Magento 2

How it works


Once the architecture of your catalog is completed in Akeneo, and your collections ready for export, you can spread your product content to Magento 2 in just a few steps from the back-end of Magento Commerce. The connector fetches data from Akeneo API and insert it directly in Magento database. As a result, imports are very fast and don't cause outages of your webstores.


See how it works in details with an end-to-end demonstration of our Akeneo Connector here:


Magento 2


The following Akeneo features can be exported to your Magento 2 webstores thanks to this connector:

  • Categories | Families | Attributes | Options | Products | Product Models

Only Community Edition features of Akeneo are supported with this connector version. To put your hands on the Enterprise Edition of this Akeneo Connector, please click HERE.

Which Akeneo Connector version should I use?

There are 2 versions of the Akeneo Connector for Magento 2.

In addition of the core features of Akeneo Community Edition, the Enterprise Edition of the connector supports additional EE-only features, such as Product Assets or Reference Entities(*).

The Enterprise Edition of the connector also benefits from SLA-backed support by Akeneo teams, as well as evolutions along the year to enhance its performances and its functional scope.

Reference Entities(*)  
Benefits Community Edition Enterprise Edition
Corrective Maintenance

Access to the connector roadmap  

(*)  As Magento 2 does not have an equivalent concept to PIM "Reference Entity", since Akeneo Connector for Magento 2 version 100.2.1, we add a new feature to map PIM Reference Entities at product level in Magento 2: please be sure to read our documentation to understand the Connector configuration possibilities and how this works in Magento 2.
