How to set up a new feed


This how-to article runs you through adding a new feed that pulls the feed data from Alli Data.


  1. From the left-hand navigation, select Products. This page shows an overview of all Active Feeds, with additional tabs to see All Feeds and Inactive Feeds if needed. To add a new feed, click the blue Add Feed button on the far right side.

  2. Choose the correct Feed Type.

  3. This page will show a list of necessary Attributes needed for the chosen feed type. Dropdown the Select a Template section to choose either a standard template of requirements or to choose and replicate a previously created feed. 

  4. Name the Feed and Item and include Item Images and Item Google Category if applicable. Once all fields are filled in, click the blue Add Feed button.

  5. Once you have configured your feed, the typical workflow is to select your Data Source where the feed will come from. Select Data Sources.

  6. Select the Data Source where the feed will come from.

  7. Assuming that the Data Source is already within Alli, choose Alli Data. Specify what Database Table (or View) to link from. Anytime that datasource is refreshed, the feed will be refreshed as well. Continue to fill in the Data Source Configuration and Primary Attribute line items. Press the blue Save button when complete.

  8. After clicking save, you will be taken back to the test.feed setup. 

  9. Clicking back into Data Sources will give you the ability to add Multiple Data Sources if needed.

  10. Back at the test.feed.setup page, click into Scheduled Imports to set up the recurring schedule.

  11.  Name the Fetch Schedule, checkmark the pertinent boxes and schedule the Fetch Times. Press Save when complete.
