Mapping between your PIM and SFCC instances: Akeneo Connector for SFCC maps PIM product models this way:

PIM Product models with 1 level of variation:

  • PIM product models common layer is mapped with SFCC Variation master
  • PIM product models variation level 1 part is mapped with SFCC Variation products

PIM Product model with 2 levels of variation:

  • PIM product models common part is mapped with SFCC Variation master
  • PIM product models variation level 1+ variation level 2 parts are mapped with SFCC Variation products

Alternative: since version SFCC Connector v19.6.0, you can model PIM Product model with 2 levels of variation like this:

  • PIM product models common part is mapped with SFCC Variation master
  • PIM product models variation level 1 part is mapped with SFCC Variation group
  • PIM product models variation level 2 part is mapped with SFCC Variation products

Please consult our cartridge configuration page to know how to configure this alternative.

#Where to find my PIM product attributes in SFCC?

  1. On the Products page, search for your product
  2. Click on the selected product
  3. Click on the Lock link in the top alert "You haven't locked this product for editing. Click Lock if you need to edit the product." to be able to edit product attributes.

With this last action, you could manipulate some attributes more easily such as, for example, the ability to click on the image attribute Edit button in order to see all product images.)

Edit Product

After your product attributes review, don't forget to click on the Unlock link in the top alert "You've locked this product for editing. Click Unlock to release."

You will find on this page all your PIM product attributes.

Depending on the configuration of your connector concerning the mapping of SFCC attributes:

  • Some PIM attributes could be mapped with SFCC product default attributes
  • The remaining PIM attributes will appear in the Akeneo Attributes part of the page

Each PIM attribute is prefixed with the akeneo_ label.

Akeneo attributes

In the Akeneo attributes part of your product, you may notice some attributes that do not belong to the family your product belongs to.

Indeed, there's no such thing as Family in Salesforce Commerce Cloud. Each product in SFCC will be assigned all PIM attributes by default.

#Where to find my PIM "localizable" attributes in SFCC?

  1. On the Products page, search for your product
  2. Click on the selected product
  3. Choose the language in the Select Language list on the product page, knowing that:
  • The Default language will be populated with the content of non-localizable attributes.
  • The other set languages in SFCC, matching with set languages in the PIM, will be populated with the content of localizable attributes (For example, if you have 3 languages for your products in the PIM (fr_FR, en_US and de_DE), you will find the content of your attributes in the French (France), English (United States) and German (Germany) languages in Salesforce Commerce Cloud.

#What about PIM "scopable" attributes in SFCC?
