Default export

Please see Shopware 6 - Export information to get an overview which values are exported by default and where they can be found in your Shopware 6 backend.

Trigger product export

The export can be called with

<SHOP-URL>/findologic?shopkey=<SHOPKEY>&start=<NUMBER>&count=<NUMBER>
  • shopkey: <SHOPKEY> provided by Findologic
  • start: <NUMBER> that should not be lower than zero, default: 0.
  • count: <NUMBER> that should be higher than zero, default: 20.

This export url is used automatically in the Findologic Account for the data sync, see documentation.

Export specific product

For testing purposes the export can be called for a specific product:

<SHOP-URL>/findologic?shopkey=<SHOPKEY>&productId=<PRODUCT_ID>
  • shopkey: <SHOPKEY> provided by Findologic.
  • productId: <PRODUCT_ID> is a 32 digit hex value created by Shopware.

If you have troubles with the export please contact us at support@findologic.com.

The generated XML is validated against our predefined XSD scheme and built with our export library libflexport.


To extend the default behavior of the Findologic main plugin and still be able to get the latest plugin updates, we've created the Findologic extension plugin. It already contains some code for extending the export logic, but you can also extend the plugin to override search logic, or even the templates of filters.

For detailed information on how to use the extension and code examples, please see Shopware 6 plugin extension


Breaking changes to the main plugin will only be released in major releases (e.g. 1.x.x => 2.x.x) and a respective UPGRADE-x.x guide can be found at GitHub.
