I look for a way to delete combinations and/or products that are listet in a csv. I hope it's possible with Store Manger.

So a have more than 7000 producst in my shop and a lot of mainproducts and combinations are not longer availible.
All these products are listet in one csv. Some of them are single products and some of them are combination.
Some combination also using the reference from the main product.


Main product is
Combinations are
111112 - Small
111113 - Medium
111114 - Large

Combiantion 111112 - Small is no longer avalible, but Medium and Large are still there.
So is there a way to delete these Combinations and also single products from a csv?
I ask because i have to delete more than 2000 products/combiantions and it will be take a lot of time to make this for each product by search and select them.

My CSV looks like this

111112 (main- and combi product)
222222 (main product)

To bad. I thought the Store Manager was a good tool to manage my prestashop, but if i have to select a product manually one by one to delete specific combinations or products than i don't need it, because it's the same way i can do in prestashop.
Why is there NO WAY to do it with a csv or xml?

thank you for contacting us via forum.
Store manager does not have option to delete products that are in import file.
Though it has option to assign them to certain category with import.
After import, you can simply delete whole category with all its products.

If you have some additional questions please contact us also by email:

Thank you and have a good day!

Hi Inna
thanks for the answer.

The suggested methode will well work for a product, But how can i do that for combination.
In my case by example i have a product and it has 4 combination (small, medium, large and xl). So if large and small are no longer availible i usually delete these 2 combination. The other two combination are still there. So i guess there is no way to assign these combination to a ne cat two?
I guess the only way is to re-assign the deleted combination to a now product that not really exist and put them then to a new cat?
So if that will work is my next question if i can assign combination to a new product?

I have handled to delete combinations by making a php script. I wonder why such a function isn't implented into Prestashop or any Manager yet.

Hello pillepalle12,

This feature will be considered as the improvement in further versions of Store Manager.

it is very important to remove joins when they are no longer available and it would be nice if they implement a solution SOON
