# 20231121 Product Type Import is now Idempotent

Date: 2023-11-21

# Status


# Context

The product type importer is a lot more useful when it is idempotent, meaning you can execute it multiple times with the same results.

# Decision

We added this functionality to the importer. It can now add attributes to types, remove attributes from them, and also run without errors if a product type has already been imported before.
