Get Dropdown values of all product attribute from Magento Database with sql

2015 May 31
by Furn Warrior

Here is another sql that will help you in getting the list of entity_id, sku and attribute value.

For e.g.

SELECT A.entity_id, B.sku, C.value
FROM `mage_catalog_product_entity_int` AS A
INNER JOIN `mage_catalog_product_entity` AS B
on A.entity_id=B.entity_id
INNER JOIN `mage_eav_attribute_option_value` AS C
on A.value=C.option_id
WHERE A.attribute_id =’218′


attribute_id is the id of the attribute that you want to get the value for. You can find this value when you login to magento admin – > manage attributes -> click on that attribute and this value will be visible in the URL.

The above SQL statement will give you list of all the active product entity_id, sku and values of the attribute needed.

Hope it helps. Will be back soon with another Magento Musing.

Magento admin missing product images

2015 May 31
by Furn Warrior

Hi Guys,

Another short note on Magento musings. After working a lot on missing product images in magento admin, we found out that magento admin missing images can be fixed using this sql -


insert into catalog_product_entity_media_gallery (attribute_id, entity_id, `value`)
select ga.attribute_id, v.entity_id, v.value 
from catalog_product_entity_varchar v
inner join eav_entity_type et on et.entity_type_code='catalog_product'
inner join eav_attribute va on va.entity_type_id=et.entity_type_id and va.frontend_input='media_image' and va.attribute_id=v.attribute_id
inner join eav_attribute ga on va.entity_type_id=et.entity_type_id and ga.attribute_code='media_gallery'
left join catalog_product_entity_media_gallery g on g.entity_id=v.entity_id and g.value=v.value
where v.value<>'no_selection' and v.value<>'' and g.value is null;

The reason it happens is because while importing products, magento does not automatically create values in media_library. After importing products regularly,
you should run this script so that both media_gallery table and product_entity_varchar image values can remain in sync.
Hopefully that will solve the problem of magento delete images after product edit in admin.
We will be back with another update soon.
