Properties

This page explains the data fields that are available for exporting properties and property groups. This page serves purely as a reference and assumes that you already have a basic understanding of FormatDesigner and the Elastic Export.

Links are not exported

This format type exports information about properties and property groups. It does not export the links between variations and properties, i.e. it does not indicate which properties are linked to which variations. If you want to export such property links, then use the format type Item instead.
