Default Opencart filter
Unlike additional filtering modules that use product attributes and options, the default OpenCart filter works with filters and filter groups pre-created in Admin -> Filters.
Using the site's filter allows visitors to quickly and conveniently find the desired product groups without browsing through dozens or hundreds of categories:
In this example, filter groups are marked in red. The filter groups should be created manually in the admin panel in the "Filters" section:

1. Make an export of products belonging to a certain category ("Tools" tab):
In the export price list (file admin/uploads/ex.xml) find the columns with product attributes:
2. Set up product attributes update, as follows:
3. Set the attribute update rules in the supplier's form first tab, save the form, and start file processing.
