Question

How are my Magento 2 image attributes imported into GoDataFeed?

 

Answer

From Magento, we bring in image_url and this is generally mapped as the main image in our Import and Feeds.

We also get an array, or list, of images named gallery_images. We parse, or separate, the list of gallery_images out into their own columns during the import process. We give them a name with base_image_urln where n is the position in the list, i.e. 1, 2, 3.

This means a gallery with 2 images would have base_image_url1, and base_image_url2 where base_image_url1 and image_url are likely the same.

Note: We have noticed the first image in the gallery is usually the main image or "image_url". When mapping additional images to your feeds, try to avoid using the base_image_url1 for any additional images to prevent duplicate images from appearing on the channel.
