How to unalias on a per SKU basis

  1. On the Catalog page, search for and then click to select the Alias SKU you would like to unalias.

  2. In the left sidebar that appears, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner. Then select Unalias from that menu.

This SKU will no longer inherit its inventory from the previous reference SKU that it was an alias of.

How to unalias SKUs in bulk 

If you need to remove the alias relationships for many of SKUs at once, you can use our Import / Export feature to do so. 

  1. Create a new template using the columns SKU and AliasOf

 2. On your import file, you will enter the Alias SKUs you would like to unalias in the SKU column and leave the AliasOf column blank.

For example:

3. When you upload your file, you will need to check "Overwrite data in Zentail with blank data in the feed" in order to replace the previous AliasOf reference SKU with a blank, which will therefore remove the alias relationship. 

Note: Be careful with checking this box for other imports or if you include more columns on the template. We suggest using just these 2 columns when un-aliasing SKUs. 

4. Once the upload is complete, verify that the SKUs are no longer aliases and that they are no longer inheriting the inventory from the reference SKUs they were previously an alias of.
