Accelerate Sync is a system to sync smaller bits of meta data much faster and more often. This feature is most valuable for syncing dynamic data.
Dynamic Data Examples
- Product Prices
- Inventory Levels
- Shipping Status
How does Accelerated Sync work?
Accelerated Sync requests small bits of meta data from the data source. The API processes the data by relating it to, but not creating, an Available Item. The Available Item must have an active Sync Status. The data is not stored long term, it is processed, synced and deleted very quickly.
Each user can have multiple sources of Accelerated Sync data per Available Item. These sources can be shared between users. The data must be related to an Available Item to be synced directly to each users website.
Configuring Accelerated Sync
Start by creating your first Accelerated Sync Data Source. Accelerated Sync is mapped the same way all other data sources are mapped.
Check with your API administrator if you do not have access to Data Source mapping.
