Step 5: Import the source taxonomy and content

Front Office Source Taxonomy And Content Import

Once the user sets up in the Back Office a configuration for importing the source taxonomy and content (see General process flow for table-based imports below), the import can be run using the Front Office:

On the page Imports, select the required saved import configuration and click on it. 


Back Office: Setting Up Table-Based Imports

To start importing your taxonomy and content, go to the Import tab, in the Import Configurations window click on Create Import Configuration, and in the drop-down select your import type.

As an example, consider setting up a Table-Based import.

On Create Table-Based Configuration page, fill in the required fields:

  • Name: assign a name to your configuration
  • Taxonomy type: from the drop-down, select the required type, e.g. Content
  • Locale: from the drop-down, select the applicable locale (language) of your content import

To confirm and proceed click on Create.

Click on Save upon completion.

Map Configuration

Your content import configuration will appear in Import Configurations.

Run the import by clicking on  ▶️  Execute Import icon.

 


Step 5: Map the content and external (Mirakl) taxonomies

The taxonomies of your content provider and Mirakl may differ. To have your products correctly displayed in your store, the taxonomies should be mapped to each other.

The taxonomy mapping menu is in Data Models → External Data tab, where the user can map languages, brands, categories, features, feature values, and units to match your content provider’s taxonomy and the Mirakl taxonomy.

The mapping can be done by either the user or the Gepard taxonomy team, subject to an agreement. There is a guide on mapping available to the user.


Step 6: Send your product content to Mirakl

Similar to the import configuration, upon your Mirakl profile activation, the Gepard platform will automatically create an export configuration for exporting the content feeds to your Mirakl store.

The user can export the product content after the taxonomies have been mapped in the Back Office.

 


Front Office Content Export

Go to the Export tab and click on the required Saved Export Configuration.

Your product content will be exported to Mirakl.


Back Office Content Export

The export configuration menu is available through the Endpoint tab in the menu:

After the taxonomies have been mapped, run your content export to Mirakl by clicking on  ▶️  Run Pipeline Execution button in the Endpoints tab:

Find the exported products on your Mirakl shop:


Step 7: Check your exported product content for errors

Front Office

After the export has been run, the user can download the export report and output file. To download, click on the icon  ⬇️  Download Report or  🗒  Download Feed, as applies:


Back Office

The user can check the status of content exports at the Export tab.
The exported files can be downloaded in XML format by clicking on the  🗒  Download Feed button.
