Import data into the target database
When importing data in to the target database, there are some considerations and configurations.
The sync level of the store for a given profile can be retrieved using the
getSyncDBImportList API, and information about what synchronization data is
available can be retrieved using the
getSyncDBExportList API. For example, suppose
the store runs
getSyncDBImportList for its Catalog profile, and through this learns
that it is at sequence number 2.1. It then queries
getSyncDBExportList to determine
the sync level for that profile available on the enterprise and learns that the enterprise has
sequence level 2.3 available. This indicates that the enterprise has run two DELTA mode exports
since the store last synchronized. The store can retrieve the zip files associated with these two
exports from a centralized data repository and re-synchronize its data with the enterprise.
ChangeDataImport agent processes the import directory to find unhandled
compressed files and XML files and adds them to its jobs queue. If the import is interrupted, only
those files that were processed are picked up when the agent restarts.
If you are importing large XML files, you need to increase the size of your database transaction log file to ensure that it has the required capacity.
