How to import Asset videos into Adobe Commerce

Since the 100.6.0 version of the Akeneo Connector for Adobe Commerce, you can import video links from assets into Adobe Commerce. Please consider that URLs management is not native in Adobe Commerce and then the related information will be stored in a JSON format.

Video import from Assets is only available for Akeneo version 4.0 or superior

Connector parameter Asset Collection Attribute Description Asset Attribute Used As Preview Title Asset Attribute Used As Preview Image Import Mode
Akeneo Asset Manager Video Attributes List your Akeneo PIM Video Asset Collection attribute codes Text attribute code from the Asset Family to be used as video description in Adobe Commerce Text attribute code from the Asset Family to be used as video title in Adobe Commerce Image attribute code from the Asset Family to be used as preview image in Adobe Commerce Import in video gallery or Import attributes as JSON

As Adobe Commerce cannot handle video binary files, the connector will only import assets with a main media of the media type "Youtube" or "Vimeo"


The preview images for asset videos are mandatory as Adobe Commerce needs an image in order to display videos on the product page

The title is not mandatory for the connector to import videos, but it is highly recommended to configure it as Adobe Commerce is expecting one in the admin product page


Videos will always be inserted at the end of the gallery image in Adobe Commerce. If there are multiple videos for the same product, the order from Akeneo will be respected in Adobe Commerce image gallery.


The localizable and scopable dimensions of your Akeneo Asset Collection Video attribute and the Akeneo Asset Family main media, description, title and preview image attribute will be automatically managed by the connector


Since the 101.0.2 version of the Akeneo Connector for Adobe Commerce, the connector manages the prefix and the suffix defined on the main media attribute and on the preview image attribute of your Akeneo video asset family.

Prefixes and suffixes are only available for external media link attributes.


Since the 101.8.0 version of the Akeneo Connector for Adobe Commerce, you can choose the import mode for your Akeneo Asset Videos.

If set to "Import in video gallery", the video link and the associated description, title and preview images will be imported in Adobe Commerce video gallery.

If set to "Download attributes as JSON", asset attributes will be imported as JSON in the corresponding Adobe Commerce product attribute.
