Scheduling an Import

Scheduling an import lets you automatically pull updates  of the import file. This will ensure automatic import of the product information updates in your PIM system. The first step towards scheduling is to configure an SFTP location, a location in the server where you can place your import file. Apart from scheduling the import, you can also set the import frequency. This would allow you to pull regular import file updates from the specified SFTP location.

Note: Once you schedule an import, you must manually start the schedule.

To schedule an import:

  1. On the MANAGE tab, click Imports.

  2. Click Scheduled Imports.
    The Scheduled Imports Listing page appears.

  3. Click Create Import Schedule.

  4. Enter a name for the import schedule.

  5. In the Import Type list, select the type of the import. For example, Product Import.

  6. If necessary, enter a description for the import schedule.

  7. Click Schedule Import.

  8. In the Select SFTP list, click the SFTP location you want to use for the import.

  9. To add a new SFTP location, click Add New, and then do the following:

    1. Enter a name for the SFTP.
    2. Enter the hostname for the SFTP.
    3. Enter the port number for the SFTP server.
    4. Enter the path to the file you want to import.
    5. Enter the username and the password.
    6. To test connectivity of the SFTP location, click Test Connection.
    7. Click Save.

  10. If you want to fetch all the files from the SFTP location, click Fetch all files from the address.

  11. If you want to fetch specific files from the SFTP location, click Fetch specific files from the address, and then enter the words that match the file name.
  12. Select the file format checkbox(es) you want to use from the SFTP location.The formats are .CSV, .XLS, .JSON, and .XML.
  13. If you want to use an import adapter, in the Select Import Adapter list, select the adapter you want to use.
  14. To set the import frequency, do the following:

    1. In the first box, enter a number for the repeat frequency of your import.

    2. In the second box, select Hours, Days, Weeks, or Months.
      • If you select Days, set the time and time zone you want to run the import.
      • If you select Weeks, click to select day of the week, time, and time zone you want to run the import.
      • If you select Months, click to select the date, time, and time zone you want to run the import.
    3. In the Ends list, do one of the following:
      • If you do not want the scheduled import to end, select Never.
      • If you want to end the scheduled import on a specific date, select On a Specific Date, and then enter the date (in DD/MM/YYYY format).
      • If you want to end the scheduled import after a specific occurence, select After Specific Occurence, and then enter the repetition count.
  15. Click Save Schedule.
    Once the schedule is saved, the status of the schedule becomes “Stopped”.
  16. To start a schedule, click Start Schedule.
