WooCommerce addon setup
NOTE: depending on how you have setup your products, the below may slightly differ.
Leave everything as is and open the WooCommerce Addon part. Select "Simple Product" type (because each variant of a products has it's own SKU).
Click on "Inventory" and Select "Yes" on the Manage Stock block.
Then, open the node "Content" and "m_properties" then drag-and-drop the field "Available_Quantity" in the "Stock Qty" field.
This tells the plugin to import only the "stock" value for a product.
Finally, set the way the plugin will match results and which fields will update.
Set the match as follows:
In the "name" field type "_sku" (this is how WooCommerce refers to the SKU ref) and in the "Value" field drag-and-drop the SKU field
Select to update only existing posts with changed data to fasten the process
Select which data to update > Custom Field > type "_stock"
