I can no longer bulk edit metafields for my products - why is this?

Hello Everyone.

 

I'm not sure why but up until recently, when I went to bulk edit products, it added a field category called metafields where I could select metafield values populated from Metafields2.

 

I'm not sure how I managed it but I did a quick sync in Metafields2, and added some new metafield values, and then when I go to bulk edit products now, the metafields are no longer there.

How can I get them selectable here again?

 

I did some research and discovered a way to bulk edit single product metafields, via a URL, like this:

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

This is only for one metafield value.  How can I either get all the custom metafield values to be editable again, or append the URL to allow me to edit more than one metafield at once?

Thanks for any help.

Ian

This is an accepted solution.

I'm replying to this in case anyone has the same issue.

 

It seems that to edit metafields you must mess around with the edit URL to include the metafields you want to edit.  They will then appear in the Shopify bulk editor and you edit them there.

 

Like this:

 

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

Edit the part in bold based on the metafield you want to edit.
