Use case

You can download ETIM data structure from ETIM Classification Management Tool: http://prod.etim-international.com/ You will get an archive with many CSV files (ETIM V6).

The current extension provides an import profile to import ETIM data structure inside Akeneo PIM.

Akeneo PIM / ETIM compatibility

We adapted ETIM features to handle them in Akeneo PIM. For example, as Akeneo does not manage with Range attribute types, we manage them using 2 attributes (min and max). Here is the functional mapping we did:

Structure Mapping

Akeneo PIM ETIM ETIM Prefix
Family ARTCLASS EC
Attribute FEATURE EF
Attribute option VALUE EV
Category (level 1) ARTGROUP EG
Category (level 2) ARTCLASS EC
Metric units UNIT EU

Features/Attributes mapping

There are 4 attribute types in ETIM but we need to map the structure to Akeneo PIM. In order to have a workaround for the metrics and attribute values, we decided to duplicate attributes in Akeneo.

ETIM feature type Akeneo PIM attribute Attribute code format
L pim_catalog_boolean EF*
A + existing values pim_catalog_simpleselect EF*_EC*
A without existing values pim_catalog_text EF*_EC*
N pim_catalog_number EF*
N + unit pim_catalog_number EF*_EC*_EU*
R 2 x pim_catalog_number EF*_EC*-min and -max
R + unit 2 x pim_catalog_number EF*_EC*_EU*-min and -max

As we should handle option by families, we decided to duplicate attributes at family level. A feature of type "A" will be many attributes in Akeneo (one per family). For metrics, they are managed as number attributes so we duplicate them by family too.

A dedicated code format has been done to allow to map attributes.

Values/Attribute options mapping

As options are duplicated depending of their families. Their codes are constructed with the following format "EF*_EC*_EV*" so from a code, you can know the family and the classification it belongs.
