This tool is experimental and for now just a proof of concept.

A CLI tool that communicates with the Shopware admin API (over an integration) to export data into (CSV) files or import data from (CSV) files.


  • It's fast, with a focus on performance
  • Every entity and field available in the API can be exported / imported
  • Supports data filtering and sorting using the API criteria
  • Import / Export profiles (schema's) are just .yaml files
    • Which can be copied + adapted + shared freely
  • Profiles include a scripting engine for arbitrary data transformations
  • For now only supports CSV files


With Cargo (Rust toolchain)

cargo install sw-sync-cli

Same command can be used for updates. See crate


head to GitHub releases and download the right binary for your operating system. Then either execute the binary directly or put it in your PATH.

Build it from this repository

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Have the latest Rust toolchain installed
  3. Run cargo build --release inside the repository root folder
  4. You will get your executable here ./target/release/sw-sync-cli


  1. Set up an integration inside shopware.
  2. Call sw-sync-cli auth with the required arguments (credentials)

This will create a .credentials.toml file in your current working directory. This file contains your credentials in plain text, you might want to remove it again after you are done syncing.

  1. Call sw-sync-cli sync in either -m import or -m export mode, with a profile (schema.yaml) and data file data.csv

You can call sw-sync-cli help at any time to get more information

Profiles (sync schema)

To get started take a look at Profiles in this repository. The structure of a profile (sync schema) .yaml is as follows:

entity: product

# optional filtering, only applied on export
  # export main products (parentId = NULL) only
  - type: "equals"
    field: "parentId"
    value: null

# optional sorting, only applied on export
  - field: "name"
    order: "ASC"

# optional additional associations (that you need in your deserialization script)
# note: entity_path associations are already added by default
# only applied on export
  - "cover"

# mappings can either be
# - by entity_path
# - by key
# the latter needs to be resolved by custom scripts
  - file_column: "id"
    entity_path: "id"
  - file_column: "name (default language)"
    entity_path: "name"
  - file_column: "product number"
    entity_path: "productNumber"
  - file_column: "stock"
    entity_path: "stock"
  - file_column: "tax id"
    entity_path: "taxId"
  - file_column: "tax rate"
    # entity path can resolve "To-One-Associations" of any depth
    entity_path: "tax.taxRate"
  - file_column: "manufacturer name"
    # They can also use the optional chaining '?.' operator to fall back to null
    # if the association is null
    entity_path: "manufacturer?.name"
  - file_column: "manufacturer id"
    # for importing, you also need the association id in the association object
    entity_path: "manufacturer?.id"
  - file_column: "gross price EUR"
    key: "gross_price_eur"
  - file_column: "net price EUR"
    key: "net_price_eur"

# optional serialization script, which is called once per entity
serialize_script: |
  // See https://rhai.rs/book/ for scripting language documentation
  // you receive an entity object, which consists of the whole entity API response for that single entity
  // you also receive an empty row object where the specified keys above are missing (you need to set them)
  // the other simple mappings are executed (added to the row object) after this script
  // debugging utils
  // debug(entity); // contains the full entity object from the API (can be huge!)
  // print(row); // will be empty
  // Use 'get_default' to look up a value equivalent to Defaults.php
  let default_currency = get_default("CURRENCY");
  let price = entity.price.find(|p| p.currencyId == default_currency);
  row.gross_price_eur = price.gross;
  row.net_price_eur = price.net;

# optional deserialization script, which is called once per entity
deserialize_script: |
  // See https://rhai.rs/book/ for scripting language documentation
  // you receive 'row' as an object that has all the keys defined above with the corresponding value
  // you also receive an empty entity object, where you need to resolve your keys
  // the other simple mappings are executed (added to the entity object) after this script
  // print(entity); // will be empty
  // debug(row); // will contain only the specified keys + their values
  entity.price = [];
    gross: row.gross_price_eur,
    net: row.net_price_eur,
    linked: true,
    currencyId: get_default("CURRENCY"),
