Connector installation on Akeneo PIM

If it's not already done, install Akeneo PIM.

Get composer (with command line):

$ cd /my/pim/installation/dir $ curl -sS | php

Then, install DnDAttributeDescriptionBundle with composer:

In your composer.json, add the following code dependending on your Akeneo PIM version:

  • In require:

{ "agencednd/attribute-description-bundle": "1.0.*" }

Next, enter the following command line:

$php composer.phar require agencednd/attribute-description-bundle

Enable the bundle in app/AppKernel.php file, in the registerBundles function, before the line return $bundles:

$bundles[] = new Dnd\Bundle\AttributeDescriptionBundle\DndAttributeDescriptionBundle();

Then you need to override your Attribute entity in app/config/config.yml (at the end of the file):

akeneo_storage_utils: mapping_overrides: - original: Pim\Bundle\CatalogBundle\Entity\Attribute override: Dnd\Bundle\AttributeDescriptionBundle\Entity\Attribute - original: Pim\Bundle\CatalogBundle\Entity\AttributeTranslation override: Dnd\Bundle\AttributeDescriptionBundle\Entity\AttributeTranslation

And enter the following command line:

$php bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force


Just create/edit an attribute, a new tab has appeared and you can fill in your attribute description for each locale.

To import attribute description you need to add a new column to your classic attribute import file : description-{locale_code} (e.g: description-en_US).
