How to interpret the values ​​of the fields that are taxonomies

What is a taxonomy?

Depending on the taxonomy, and whether it is hierarchical (e.g. product category), the same taxonomy name may be duplicated in distinct branches, as you can see in the image.

For this reason, and because some customers want to use ATUM Export for importing or migrating data between distinct sites, we need to add control info in our exports.

Taxonomies are exported with this format (please, take into account that a product can belong to more than one brand or category):

taxonomy_name:term_id:parent_term_id|taxonomy_name_2:term_id_2:parent_term_id_2

With this format, we can re-import the taxonomies later on in a correct way, and at the same time, we provide values that can be easily automatically edited.
