Category Mapping

Availability: independent

The category mapping can be used to override Google's automatic product categorization in certain cases. A new field must be added in the Google feed with "google_product_category".

Then a new column with the column name "google_product_category" and the value "Google Category ID" can be added in the feed engine under "Edit structure".

On the left side are the store categories.
In the middle area, by entering a search term, the product category defined by Google can be picked out and assigned.

On the right side there are the following options:

  • X Symbol: remove an assignment
  • Menu icon:
    • Apply selection to all subcategories
    • Reset all subcategories
  • Plus/minus icon: Show/hide subcategories
  • Show category IDs: shows the internal Elasticsearch ID of the store category
