Managing Products And Their Variants

This basic Use Case demonstrates how we can manage products and their variants—right from creating a product, product variant, updating it, and finally deleting the product variant when it runs out of inventory.

This Pipeline includes the following steps:

  1. Creating Product
  2. Creating Product Variant
  3. Updating Product Variant
  4. Deleting Product Variant

First, we configure the Mapper Snap to pass details of the product that we want to create.

Upon validation, this Snap generates product data as follows.

Next, we create the product using the Create Product Snap.

Upon validation, the Snap generates the following product data in the output preview.

We now configure the second Mapper Snap to pass the product variant details (as highlighted below) for the product we have just created.

Upon validation, the Snap generates output data as follows.

We configure the Create Product Variant Snap—we specify $id in the Product Id field to create a variant for the product.

Upon validation, the Snap generates the output with the product variant id and the other variant details of the product.


Next, we configure the third Mapper Snap to map specific product details (as highlighted below) against the target columns.

Upon validation, the Snap generates the following output.

We configure the Update Product Variant Snap to update the details of the product variant.

Upon validation, the Snap generates the following product variant data.

Finally, we configure the Delete Product Variant Snap to delete the variant—we specify the $product_id (Product Id) and $id (Resource Id) to accomplish this task.

Upon validation, we see the status of the delete operation as Success, which indicates the successful deletion of the product variant record is deleted.
