Data import

Edit on GitHub

Easily import your business logic and data, such as Product Information, Customer Base, Categories, and many more into the Spryker Commerce OS.

The Data Import feature allows you to configure what you need to import. You don’t need to import all data that is available in Spryker OS out of the box. Instead, you can define what data you want to import for your project using a YAML configuration file. See Importing data with a configuration file for details on how you can do that.

Data import help

To help you build your import files, define the correct order of the data importers to run, there is the Data import documentation for your reference. Consult it whenever you need to import data into your project.

The main benefits of the Data Import feature are:

  • Allows for flexibility to set up initial data and update new information using configuration (YAML) file as a parameter of the data:import console command.
  • Presupposes batch data files import, allowing to change sequence order, without changing the project’s source code.
  • Reduces new projects time-to-market due to a high agility to run frequent data updates.
  • Increases business people autonomy (online store manager, purchasing agent, warehouse manager, analyst, etc.), as the data changes are handled flexibly.
