Configuring import filters

You might want to filter out products from your feed to prevent them from entering Omnia for several reasons. This article explains step by step how to add or remove import filters.

To set up import filters, navigate to the connect section and click "Configure Shop." Within the shop configuration, you can select "Filtering." 

Similar to adding a feed or a custom import field, you can add a filter by clicking the “Add new filter” button on the top left of the screen. 

Filters have two parts: the IF-statement ('filter variables') and the THEN-statement ('filter action').

Step-by-step guide


Step 1: Add a name to your filter

We advise you to use a consistent naming convention across all filters. This way, you can quickly see what is being filtered out.


Step 2: Define filter variables

In the filter variables, you can select the field you want to use as a filter via the dropdown menu. All standard fields and custom-created fields are shown here. 

After selecting the field, you need to define which values the filter should apply. 

Note: for fields that are mapped as numbers, empty values are imported as 0. If you want to filter on such a field, you must create a filter for "field is equal to 0".

Step 3: Define filter action

In the THEN statement, you can define whether Omnia should include or exclude products that are triggered by the IF statement. 


After defining the filter variables and action, press "Save filter" to save the filter. The filter should now appear in the list.
