    Will this same exact process work with virtual variations using the NetSuite Matrix Item to Shopify Product Add/Update flow? It seems to work perfectly for the parent item only but it does not seem to export metafields for variant items.

    HI there, I have the same question as above. Can't get these working on NetSuite Matrix Item to Shopify Product Add/Update flow.

    As of January 1, 2019, I was able to map product-level metafields through the Matrix Item Flow. I have not tested variant-level metafields.

    The product-level metafields through the matrix flow have always worked for us. The issue is with the variant-level metafields.

    Hi all,
    Shopify Connector currently doesn't support meta fields at variant-level and this is being tracked as an enhancement for a future release.

    Has this enhancement been deployed @Rohit?

    Is this deployed? I have the same question, and was under the impression after doing a detailed video walkthrough with a customer onboarding tech person that this was the case...but now the comments are scaring me (and I'm not seeing any other info in the help documentaiton).

    How can a metafield be removed from a product? For example, we have a product that had a Disclaimer metafield at one point. Now that disclaimer has been removed from the product in NetSuite and the value is null. The metafield still exists on the product in Shopify and the content of that metafield is not being removed.

    Our Item export flow from NetSuite to Shopify doesn't support delete operation, as it is risky of loosing data. We haven't heard use cases to support it as of now. Let me add to product backlog, but will consider it in future based on demand from others customers. You can built custom flow as quick win to perform this task.

    How can we change the "value type" of metafields? Currently, all metafields are being imported into Shopify as value type = string, but what if we want to import integers or currency?

    Hi, you can use the "Settings" (Gear) icon next to the field mapping in to set the "Data Type" value to "Integer".
