Hi everyone

I'm running into an issue where metafields content is not showing up after bulk editing. would be much appreciate to get some advice on show to fix this. 


So I have followed the bulk adding Metafields in this article and it works fine.



However, when check each product setting, the metafields are all blank. I have gone back to check in the bulk editor but everything looks fine. What have i done wrong? or if i have missed out any steps to make it work?

Hi @AnhVNguyen ,


Indeed, that's quite a weird problem. You may want to make sure that the data wasn't deleted during the bulk update (or after). You can do that with an API request or by installing a metafields app.

Check out Metafields Guru, the #1 ranked metafields app.

I just did a quick test on our test store and seeing the same behavior.  The field is showing up in the bulk editor when modifying the URL, but after making the changes and hitting "Save", the data didn't save.


Editing the Metafields via the individual resource pages still works though.


Could it be related to this post?

Dear Everyone, 


Another solution would be to use Native Metafields, an app built for the new standard/native Shopify metafields & defintions. It permit easy edit in bulk/list, import & export.
