Overview - Legacy (Integration)

How Tos (5)

You can find this section under Integration > Overview - Legacy in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

The screen presents you with an overview of ‘legacy’ integrations on the IRP. The screen also provides you with summary log files that show what integration actions have been carried out and when they occurred, whether or not those actions were successful and details such as the name and IP address of the IRP Admin users who performed the integrations.

This is useful information because, if you notice that some data has been incorrectly formatted or that it is wrong in some way or other on your website, you need to know when the integration was carried out and by whom. You can then proceed to contact the user for more details, if necessary. You can then go on to correct the errors.

The overview screen for legacy integrations appears as follows:

Legacy Integration Overview screen

The information is grouped into the following sections:

  • Product Integration Overview
  • You use Product Integration to format and create recurring bulk imports of product data.

    This section includes the following summary information:

    • Is Integration Active: (Yes or No) This indicates whether product integration is ready to run, based on field mapping prerequisites and the presence of a product integration SQL query. If Integration is active, you will see a summary of information displayed in the lower part of the section (see ‘Integration Details’) below.
    • Product Data Last Integrated: This shows the date and time when the product integration was last performed. If not applicable, this will state ‘Not Integrated’. Click the Edit button to go to the Product section.

    When setting up your Legacy Product Integration for the first time you should follow these steps:

    • Set Data Manipulation Steps using the Manipulate Imported Data tab. See the Legacy Integrations: How To Add or Edit Data Manipulation Steps article for details.
    • Set Data Field Mappings using the Map Imported Fields tab. See the Legacy Integrations: How To Edit Field Mappings for Product Integrations article for details.
    • Create Integration SQL Query using the Integration Query tab. See the Legacy Integrations: How To Add or Edit an Integration Query article for details.
    • After these steps have been completed, you do not need to perform them again unless the import file format changes.

    • Perform the integration as described in the Legacy Integrations: How To Perform an Integration article.
  • Stock Integration Overview
  • Stock Integration is used to format and create recurring bulk imports of stock data. The section can also be used to update any value contained in the Stock table of your IRP database including Part Codes, EAN Codes, Postage Weights, prices, RRPs, etc.

    This section includes the following summary information:

    • Is Integration Active: (Yes or No) This indicates whether stock integration is ready to run, based on field mapping prerequisites and the presence of a stock levels integration SQL query. If Integration is active, you will see a summary of information displayed in the lower part of the section (see ‘Integration Details’) below.
    • Stock Data Last Integrated: This shows the date and time when the stock integration was last performed. If not applicable, this will state ‘Not Integrated’. Click the Edit button to go to the Stock section.

    When setting up your Legacy Stock Integration for the first time you should follow these steps:

    • Set Data Manipulation Steps using the Manipulate Imported Data tab. See the Legacy Integrations: How To Add or Edit Data Manipulation Steps article for details.
    • Set Data Field Mappings using the Map Imported Fields tab. See the Legacy Integrations: How To Edit Field Mappings for Stock Integrations article for details.

  • Custom Integration Overview
  • You can use this section for any type of custom integration, for example you may want to use it for Orders Integration — you could upload a file to the IRP from your EPOS system then run SQL on it to update your Order statuses.

    This section includes the following summary information:

    • Is Integration Active: (Yes or No) This indicates whether custom integration is ready to run, based on the presence of a stock integration SQL query. If Integration is active, you will see a summary of information displayed in the lower part of the section (see ‘Integration Details’) below.
