I’m trying to import my categories from another cart via Magento’s API.
My goal is to use the same URLs for Magento as on my old cart, for SEO reasons.
My old cart has everything Magento’s API needs: parentid, path, name, etc. The only problem is, how do you specify the category ID when creating or updating a category via the API?
The parent and path information from my old cart is pretty much useless if the categories have a different ID in Magento.
Surely someone must have run into this problem.
Do I have to use SQL or modify Magento?
Edit: forgot to mention, I’m using xml-rpc via a python script.
