Variant Product Field Mapping in Akeneo: If you want to export the different attributes for the common and variant products you can choose Variant field mapping and map the attribute.

So you will find the different attributes for both the common and variant products in Magento2.

Example: If you want to set the different price lists for the common and variant products you can map the attributes in the common product field with price1 and in the variant product field with price2.

Category Export to Magento 2 –

The default Magento 2 tree will be exported with all of the categories. The child categories that are active in multiple channels can be selected.

If you want to use more than one category tree, then export categories then select the respective category tree as the default category tree on Magento 2.

Magento2 CSV Export Job

However, you can export the product to fastly to the Magento2 store with the Magento2 CSV export job. Akeneo’s product will be automatically updated on the Magento store.

After that, you can export the product also with the simple product export job but it will take more time than CSV export.

For it, you have to install and upload the app folder to your Magento2 installation directory. Then you will find the app folder in our latest version of the connector.

Then you will find the app folder in the ImportProductQueue folder.

Upload folder

After uploading the folder, you have to navigate the Magento2 installation directory with commands. You have to run these commands:

composer require firegento/fastsimpleimport
php bin/magento module:enable FireGento_FastSimpleImport
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile;
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy;

Now after it, you have to flush the cache and reindex all.

php bin/magento cache:clean;
php bin/magento indexer:reindex;

After it, you can create the CSV export profile for faster product export.
