How to import data from external MySQL database to Magento 2

Magento 2 mysql data import

Often it is necessary to import products, customers, orders, or other data types to Magento 2 from a third-party MySQL database. However, Magento 2 doesn’t let you do that. Although the default tools don’t support such file sources as external databases, there are several ways to synchronize Magento 2 with external databases

In the following post, we shed light on how to achieve this goal in two different ways. Firstly, we describe a common approach that involves the default Magento 2 import solution. It requires tons of manual work and cannot be automated. You need to run a CSV export from your MySQL database, match third-party attributes to ones used in Magento 2, and import your MySQL table into your e-commerce website.

On the contrary, you will find out how to avoid numerous unnecessary chores while importing data to Magento 2 from a MySQL database. This approach involves the Improved Import & Export extension. The module combines MySQL database connection and other data import activities within a single interface right in your Magento 2 admin.

After that, we shed light on several MySQL facts as well as describe the core features of the Improved Import & Export extension. To make the long story short, let’s see how to import data from an external MySQL database to Magento 2.

Magento 2 import export debug log

Recently, we’ve spotted a question on StackExchange regarding database import. David Duong faced problems while transferring a database on Magento 2.3.3.

However, it is quite a complex process since the system doesn’t let you transfer a database to Magento 2 directly. You always need to create an output file that contains a particular entity. If your file incorporates several types of data (e.g., products and orders), it is necessary to split it into two separate tables.

Furthermore, you always have to edit attributes in the imported file to make them suitable for the Magento 2 requirements. Otherwise, no database import to Magento 2 is possible. And it is impossible to automate regular data transfers from a database to your e-commerce website. However, there is a tool that solves all these issues. After we describe a method provided in the StackExchange discussion, you will find out how to achieve the missing functionality with the help of the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension.
