Editing Metafields

Use can use the Bulk Product Editor app to edit your metafields in the same way you would edit other product and variant fields as long as they're defined in Shopify

Updating Metafield Definitions

When you install the Bulk Product Editor app, it will check with Shopify to see which metafields you have defined. Any defined metafields can then be edited through the app. You can see a list of the metafield definitions the app knows about by going to Settings > Metafields

If you add or modify a metafield definition in the Shopify admin, you may need to tell the app to update your metafield definitions. 

To update your metafield definitions:

  1. Go to Settings 
  2. Select Metafields 
  3. Click Refresh in the "Shopify Metafield Definitions" section. 

Notes on Editing Metafields

While we try to treat metafields the same as any other editable field, there are a couple of things to keep in mind specific to metafields: 

  • Edits for metafields will take longer because they require more API calls than most other edits
  • If you add a new metafield namespace, we recommend redownloading all metafields. 

To redownload all metafields:

  1. Go to Settings  
  2. Select Metafields
  3. Click on Refresh Metafields at the bottom
