The following article lists the most common error messages for Heureka XML feeds and their meanings. Based on this information, fixing bugs in the Heureka XML feed will be easier.
Where to find error messages
Error messages are displayed after the first loading of feeds. You can find them in the MALL Partner portal, in the Heureka feed section, in the Feed status tab.
All the error messages are in the Unimported products and Deleted products lines. More detailed information will be displayed after clicking the Protocol button. The number of products that are faulty is also shown here.
In the log you will find your product ID and a specific error message that needs to be corrected.
The products that you find in the log were not uploaded to the system because they contain an important error that prevents the product from being saved to the system. Therefore, it is necessary to pay due attention to the messages and eliminate the errors.
See below for a list of the most common error messages and their meanings.
List of error messages
|ID: 123456, Error: variant [ID=123456] skipped due to missing parameters||When creating variant products, the mandatory element is not filled in PARAM.|
See our article for more information Variant products and how to set them up.
|ID: 123456, Error: Invalid MANUFACTURER or CATEGORYTEXT||One of the MANUFACTURER or CATEGORYTEXT elements is missing or invalid in the product feed. |
It is necessary to check both elements in the feed and adjust the one that is faulty. The system does not accept an empty element. Valid brand and category are key for uploading products.
|ID: 123456, Error: Unpaired or unaccepted brand 'escape'||The brand name 'Escape' is not paired in the partner portal or contains prohibited characters. After uploading the product feed, the brands we already have in the system are automatically paired. In that case, the brand name must not contain typos. If the brand does not pair automatically, it is necessary to create it first and then pair it. |
See our article for more information How to use brands with Heureka XML Feed.
Instructions on how to create a new brand can be found in the article here.
|ID: 123456, Error: Unpaired category 'Kitchen | Utensils | Ceramic bowls'||Category "Kitchen | Utensils | Ceramic bowls" is unpaired in the partner portal.|
We recommend using categorization according to Heureka, ie using CATEGORYTEXT, which are defined in the Heureka tree and pairing will take place automatically.
If you use your own categories, you need to manually pair these categories to Heureka category directly in the partner portal. We have paired Heureka categories and MALL categories, so the product will then be automatically uploaded to the correct category on MALL.
Instructions for pairing categories can be found here.

Other error messages and their settings in the Feed Status tab
Products without VAT settings
The VAT element is not included in the feed, so it is technically necessary to add VAT to the products. Just click on Set, select the appropriate tax rate and confirm.
You set one VAT value for all products and you only need to make the settings once.
If you have products where you need to have different VAT values, you need to set the VAT element in the product feed for those products.
After setting up, the product feed needs to be loaded.
Products without rounded price
There is a price in the feed that is not rounded, so it is necessary to technically adjust the price. Just click on Set and confirm. You only need to make the settings once. After setting up, you need to load the product feed.
Products without EAN
EANs are mandatory for us and it is necessary to add them to the products. For a list of IDs with missing EANs, click on Protocol. Only valid EANs need to be added, otherwise the system will evaluate this as an error and the product will not be uploaded to the system.
