The Magento connector has a feature to use a virtual panel to update item attributes in Magento. This is used for updating custom attributes in Magento. Instead of the default text mapping file, we can make use of virtual fields in NetSuite that users can populate. This virtual panel works by using a client script to run on the form.
Here's what the virtual panel looks like. This is only visible in edit mode.
To activate the virtual panel, locate the following scripts. Filter by User Event and Client types.
Celigo MagentoIC IncludeExtJs
Celigo MagentoIC FormManager
Deploy the scripts for each item type that you want to enable the virtual panel for.
Undeploy the item attribute mapping script for the same item types because you can only use either attribute mapping or virtual panel. The attribute item mapping script overrides the virtual panel script.
Limitations of the Virtual Panel
- Multi-select attributes are not supported
- Mass updates and CSV imports are not supported
