Depending on the configuration there are different options to start an actual import.
When data source is
push, the import process starts every time data is pushed to the corresponding
endpoint. There is no further configuration possible or needed.
For all the other data sources, Pimcore needs a trigger to start the import process. Following triggers are available.
Clicking on the
Manual Execution Start button in the configuration editor manually starts the import.
Manual Execution Start button there is also the possibility to configure a cron definition
based on which the import starts on a regular base, e.g. every 10 Minutes, once a day, etc.
See for example Crontab Guru for possibilities and a generator for generating cron definitions.
datahub:data-importer:execute-croncommand is setup properly during installation.
It is also possible to imports with executing the
datahub:data-importer:prepare-import command on the commandline.
For further details on import execution also see Import Execution Details.
