How to edit variant meta data in Bulk Editor

I'm trying to edit the meta data for individual variants with a url like this:

https://SHOPNAME.myshopify.com/admin/bulk?resource_name=Product&edit=metafields.global.edition:strin...

As you can see from the image below, the variant meta fields don't seem to be editable but I've seen in other posts that people have been displaying Variant meta data in their stores so there must be a way to edit this. Maybe I have the url format wrong?

Never mind, found the solution:

https://SHOPNAME.myshopify.com/admin/bulk?resource_name=ProductVariant&show= image,full_title,variants&edit=metafields.global.edition_quantity:string

Hi,

  Check Free Inventory Management Software and get to create products with multiple variants with a theme based generation

Thanks and Best Regards, Abdul

Thanks for that.

Do you know if those extra fields such as full_title are documented anywhere?

I don't think so — the bulk editor is pretty poorly documented from what I've seen : (

Metafield editing via the bulk editor is not officially supported. Whilst there's the blog post that unlocks the cool feature you shouldn't be expecting official documentation on it at this stage.

I see.

I hope it becomes official. I just stumbled on the blog post and this is pretty awesome!
