Set up the Classification Mapping list

Set up the Classification Mapping list, formerly known as Classification List, to create a list of all included values in a selected import or intermediate attribute and replace them with categories from a classification system in Productsup.

Introduction

The Classification Mapping list, formerly known as Classification List, lets you create a list of all included values in a selected import or intermediate attribute and replace them with categories from a classification system.

For example, manufacturers in the electrical, heating and ventilation, and building and construction industries often need to provide product data to trade and industry partners. These products follow an international classification standard, which structures product information by class. Productsup supports the ETIM classification standard for trade and industry partners. See Set up ETIM Classification export for more information.

  5. Next, in Stage, choose the Import or Intermediate stage to replace values with partner taxonomy categories.

  6. In Attribute, select the field and enter attributes from an auto-complete list of pre-defined values from your selected import or intermediate column.

  7. (Optional) Toggle on the Share list button and choose one of the following:

    1. Account level - Share this list with all sites across all projects under this account.

    2. Project level - Share this list with all sites under this project.

    Note

    If you share the list at the account or project level, the platform updates the list during an import from the original site where you created the list.

  8. Select Add.

Match categories to classifications

  1. In the Classification Mapping list view, a list of values appears under the category column that you selected as a source.

  2. Under the Replace Term column in the empty fields, as you begin typing, available classifications appear. As necessary, select the relevant classifications per category. Continue with each field to assign a classification to all product categories.
