Magento Commerce, 1.14.x

Scheduled Import/Export

Scheduled imports and exports can be run on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The files to be imported or exported can be located on local Magento servers, or on remote FTP servers. Scheduled Import/Export is implemented by default, and does not require additional configuration. All scheduled imports and exports are managed by the Cron job scheduler.

To access the scheduled import/export:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Import/Export > Scheduled Import/Export.
Scheduled Import/Export
Scheduled Import/Export
2. To create a new scheduled import or export job, click the Add Scheduled Import or Add Scheduled Export button. After saving the record, a new scheduled import or export is added to the list on the Scheduled Import/Export page.
3. After each scheduled import and export operation, a copy of the import or export file is placed in the var/log/import_export/%Y%/%m%/%d%/ directory on the Magento local server.

The details of each import/export operation are not written to a log, but if an error occurs, you will receive an Import or Export Failed email, which contains the error description.

After each import job, a reindex operation is performed automatically.
