Linking feeds

If you're working with multiple import feeds, you need to link the feeds so Omnia can process them. This article explains how to link feeds.

When Omnia imports your data, it creates a relational database. The relational database is created from the base feed. The feeds need to have a common denominator in order to be linked. 



If your stock information is imported through a separate feed, this feed needs to include

ID/SKU/EAN so that Omnia knows to what rows in the database it needs to add the stock number.


Step 1: Select base feed

After adding multiple feeds, Omnia will ask you to link these feeds.

The first step is to select the base feed. You should select the feed that includes the most products.

Step 2: Select

After selecting the base feed, you can open the feed linking tool by clicking "Start to link feeds."

On the left side, select which feed to link. On the right side, select which feed to link it to. It's best if you can link to the base feed, if possible.

After selecting the feeds, you need to select which columns to link. As explained above, both feeds need to have a common data field so Omnia knows which values belong to what products. It is also possible to link feeds based on multiple fields. You can do this by selecting multiple columns in the feed linking tool. 

A test value from both feeds will show. Click "Validate" on both feeds. If correct, click "Link feed" to save the link.

When successful, you'll see that both feeds have been linked:
