Resave Product as template

Resave Product as template


  • Save Product As Template is not possible if Template name already exist
    • ERROR: "The template was not created because of the following problem: There is already a Product Template with name of <TemplateName> and locale of ALL"
  • Cannot Delete a template if this was used to create an existing Product
    • ERROR: "<TemplateName> Template is already in use by one or more containers, it cannot be deleted"
    • So the solution CS20918 will fail

The only workaround I know

  1. Save Product Template as Template B
  2. Download Template A and Template B
  3. Delete Template B
  4. Extract zip from Template and Template
    1. Edit Template A.xml and paste Template B.xml content
    2. Create new zip for Template
  5. Edit Template A
    1. Upload new zip (should be same name)

Idea I sugest

  • To be possible to Save a Product As Template and overwrite an existing Template
