Ticket: Importing data into Matrix field with Assets and Fieldpack checkbox column

Hi Brian, now that I’ve got past the point of setting up the import, I’m finding it’s all working fine except for importing data into a Matrix field which includes Assets and Fieldpack checkbox columns. All the other columns that have plain text fields have the data imported correctly, but the assets and checkbox columns are empty.

This is what I have in my XML template:

<product_styles>
  {product_styles}
  <row>
    <title>{title}</title>
    <code>{code}
    {image} // This is the Assets field
    {colours backspace="1"}{option_name},{/colours} // This is the checkbox field
  
  {/product_styles}

Have I got the export template structured correctly?

Hi John. I don’t support the Matrix ft or any of the field pack stuff. https://docs.boldminded.com/datagrab/docs/installation-and-upgrading

Sorry to reopen this but do you have any suggestions on how to get Matrix content into Grid fields if the site is already on EE 6.x? The Matrix/Playa importer tool only works for EE 2.

I started updating that importer to work in newer versions of EE, but I haven’t been able to fully test it. You’re welcome to give it a shot though https://github.com/litzinger/PlayaMatrixImporter

Or ask Packet Tide/EE team to update the add-on so it’ll run in later versions of EE.
