How to fix: Deprecated energy efficient attributes

These energy efficiency attributes are being deprecated on September 1, 2024. Provide only the certification [certification] attribute.

In this article

Why the issue is happening

The legacy energy efficiency class [energy_efficiency_class], minimum energy efficiency class [min_energy_efficiency_class], and maximum energy efficiency class [max_energy_efficiency_class] attributes were used instead of the certification [certification] attribute. The certification [certification] attribute is safer.

Example

If a product is marked with energy efficiency class energy_efficiency_class=A, then the product will display in the Needs Attention tab.
