08 Oct 2021 e-Commerce Pimcore PIM

Working with a wide variety of customers, we are constantly realising innovative individual solutions that could also be useful for others. We would like to share these with all interested parties: We are opening our toolbox and presenting a large selection of plugins - straight from the Blackbit developer's forge and available immediately in the Blackbit Shop.

We are always happy to share our knowledge and the fruits of our labour with anyone who is interested. We are happy when as many people as possible benefit from our work in terms of efficiency and when we can contribute to the realisation of projects. The plugins presented here are already in use and have proven themselves in practice. This is what the new Pimcore plugins can do:

Pimcore Plugin Digital Asset Management (DAM)

With our DAM plugin, you can consolidate and manage your digital assets particularly easily and utilise them across the entire platform. Ideal support for IT, marketing and sales.

  • Business analyses/statistics on customers and products


  • Export of customers, products and orders to HubSpot

Pimcore Rich Snippets Plugin

Enrich your Pimcore elements with rich snippet data and output them as JSON-LD. This data can be read by search engines such as Google so that your pages, e.g. for products, recipes, etc., are displayed in a special way in the search results. All rich snippet formats are supported.

You do not have to enter the data for the rich snippet fields again, but can refer to your existing fields, e.g. for article number, name, images, etc. It is also possible to change the data to be used in the rich snippet via callback functions that you can store directly within the Pimcore backend (so you don't have to make changes in any files).

Pimcore Rich Snippets Plugin von Blackbit

Possible applications

  • Highlight websites in Google search results (e.g. products, recipes, job adverts)
  • Have product data crawled by Google Shopping


  • Maintenance of rich snippet data in the Pimcore backend
  • No duplicate maintenance, as existing fields can be referenced

Pimcore Reports: Access External Dataport Plugin

This module provides you with an additional user-defined report of the type "External database" in the Pimcore backend on the "User-defined reports" page. With the help of the plugin you can access external databases (e.g. the database of your ERP system, your online shop), on the other hand the plugin fixes a vulnerability of the standard SQL report adapter of Pimcore by also being able to execute complex statements for querying the Pimcore database (e.g. UNION statements). In addition, in combination with the Pimcore Data Director Bundle, you can not only display data from external databases, but also import them directly into Pimcore.

Pimcore Reports: Access External Database Plugin von Blackbit

Possible applications

  • Query data from external systems (e.g. from webshop/ERP system)
  • Check whether exports from Pimcore have worked successfully


  • Supports all SQL-based databases (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MSSQL, OBDC etc.)
  • Simple text field for entering the SQL query also enables complex SQL queries

Pimcore CMS Toolbox Plugin

This plugin comes with numerous document building blocks (area bricks) so that you can immediately start creating attractively designed CMS pages in the Pimcore documents. Many websites use similar basic components, just in their own style. Users of our toolbox can now easily create content according to their needs without having to develop specific components.
