Configure jobs import from XML file

  1. Go to Settings -> XML import templates

We have preconfigured 3 standard templates. You may edit one of the generic templates or create your own. Press [Edit] to use preconfigured template. To create new custom template based on any of the existing templates. Or click [Add] to create new custom import template


  1. Now you may map fields from your XML feed

Sync fields  – defines which field (or coma-separated fields) will identify job for update. If there is no job with this data – new job will be created. By default it is reference field.

Root path – hierarchy of your XML feed. Enter your Root path and press [Generate]. All the fields in the template will be automatically updated with your root path.




If field does not have mapping it will be empty. Fields marked with * are mandatory
