General Exporter Setup

To use the exporter to its full extend you are required to install a Shopware extension which allows you to import all custom attributes and shops into Akeneo. After installing the extension on the Shopware side, you need to create the import job in Akeneo and run it once.

Export Job

Be sure to fill the correct API details which Shopware is displaying in its user management tab. After the general API information is filled, the attribute mapping has to be done by hand at which point you need to fill in the Akeneo attribute names.
