  • Akeneo PIM CE 1.2.x stable or PIM CE 1.3.x stable

Installation instructions

Please make sure that your version of PHP has support for SOAP and XML (natively coming with PHP for Debian based distributions).

Installing the Magento Connector in an Akeneo PIM standard installation

If not already done, install Akeneo PIM (see this documentation).

The PIM installation directory where you will find app, web, src, ... is called thereafter /my/pim/installation/dir.

Get composer:

$ cd /my/pim/installation/dir
$ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Install the MagentoConnector with composer:

$ php composer.phar require akeneo/magento-connector-bundle:1.2.*

Enable the bundle in the app/AppKernel.php file, in the registerBundles function just before the return $bundles line:

$bundles[] = new Pim\Bundle\MagentoConnectorBundle\PimMagentoConnectorBundle();

You can now update your database:

php app/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Don't forget to reinstall pim assets, then clear the cache:

php app/console pim:installer:assets
php app/console cache:clear --env=prod

Finally you can restart your apache server:

service apache2 restart

Installing the Magento Connector in an Akeneo PIM development environment (master)

The following installation instructions are meant for development on the Magento connector itself, and should not be used in production environments. Start by setting up a working installation as previously explained, but use de dev-master version:

$ php composer.phar require akeneo/magento-connector-bundle:dev-master

Then clone the git repository of the Magento connector bundle anywhere on your file system, and create a symbolic link to the vendor folder of your Akeneo installation's (after renaming/deleting the original one).

You can now update your database and reinstall pim assets as explained previously.

Demo fixtures

To test the connector with the minimum data requirements, you can load the demo fixtures. Change the installer_data line from the app/config/parameters.yml file to:

installer_data: PimMagentoConnectorBundle:demo_magento

Two locales are activated by default, so for the export jobs to work out of the box, you need to add an extra storeview to your Magento environment, and map this store view with the Akeneo fr_FR locale.

Magento side configuration

In order to export products to Magento, a SOAP user with full rights has to be created on Magento.

For that, in the Magento Admin Panel, access Web Services > SOAP/XML-RPC - Roles, then click on Add New Role button. Create a role, choose a name, for instance “Soap”, and select All in Roles Resources.

Role name setup example:

Magento role name setup

Role resources setup example:

Magento role resources setup

Now you can create a soap user. Go to Web Services > SOAP/XML-RPC - Users and click on “Add New User” button. Complete user info at your liking, then select “Soap” role (or whatever name you gave to it) in the User Role section.

User setup example:

Magento soap user setup

User role setup example:

Magento soap user role setup

After that you can go to Spread > Export profiles on Akeneo PIM and create your first Magento export job. For more informations, go take a look to the user guide.
