Re: using own category ID when importing categories

You can and should not change the internal Magento ID as this is a primary key in the category table and a foreign key to a lot of other tables.

 

You did not explain why you want to do this. If you need it just as information/relation to an external system, you could just add an extra category attribute where you can add/set your own category id.
