Description

P2M: The reliable way to publish and synchronize your Product Data from Akeneo to Magento via REST API.
 

P2M pushes data from Akeneo PIM to Magento via Magento REST API. Because of this, integration minimizes dependencies between both applications (Akeneo PIM & Magento 2) so that each can evolve without causing problems to the other. For example, a customization within Magento (installation of new extensions, development of additional functionalities, upgrade to new Magento version, etc.) should have no effect on the operability of the integration.

Main Benefits of P2M:

  • See only the changes of the product data that are analyzed and display them immediately after the editing process or at any time in between: no tedious crawling through large and cumbersome import and export tables is necessary!
  • Get a real synchronization between the product data in Akeneo and the Magento marketplace: Added, changed and even deleted product information will always be automatically adjusted in the marketplace system, leaving manual check-ups controlling if all changes have been truly implemented to be a work step of the past.

  • Never worry about the technical accuracy and errors of product data published on the shop website: Understandable error-warnings will prevent broken data from going online and are held until fixed.

  • Continues synchronization from the point if it was stopped (i.e. something happened and Akeneo was crashed/server restarted, etc).

During the data publication process you can see detail real-time report about performing actions.

Each data export to Magento is splitted into the next steps:

3.1 Structure Analyzing (Classification Data)

At this step P2M analyzes next structure data in Akeneo PIM:

  • Categories

  • Attributes (with Attribute options)

  • Families (with Attribute groups)

Based on this analyze P2M decides what data should be created/updated/deleted on Magento side.

Classification Data Analyzing

3.2 Structure Synchronization

During this step P2M sends API requests to Magento, related to structure data:

  • Categories create/update/delete

  • Attributes (incl. Attribute options) create/update/delete

  • Families create/update/delete

 

Structure Data Sync

3.3 Data Analyzing (Products Data)

At this step P2M analyzes data related to products in Akeneo PIM:

  • Products

  • Product Models

  • Links between Products and Product Models

  • Products assignment to categories

  • Media data (media assets for Akeneo Enterprise)

Based on this analyze P2M defines what data related to Products should be created/updated/deleted on Magento side.

Products Data Analyzing

3.4 Products Data Synchronization

During this step P2M sends API requests to Magento, related to Products data:

  • Products create/update/delete

  • Product Models create/update/delete

  • Products assignment to categories
