Magento Connector Advanced Options

The Magento Connector Advanced page provides several options you can use to tweak and/or test your connector settings.

Each option on this page is explained in the table below.

Statistic Description
Test Mode Enabling this turns off the exchange of data. You might want to use test mode if you are concerned there is a problem with the connector. It is enabled by default for Sandbox accounts. Magento Connector has two test modes:
  • Pause Event Queuing turns off the collection of data all together. Any events that occur when this is enabled will not be imported when this is set back to disabled.
  • Pause Event Processing turns off the import of data but stores data so that it can be imported when this is set back to disabled.
Note: Both pause event settings must be set to No to fully test connector modules. With events running, Connector will start collecting data from this point forward.
Settings Send Table Cleanup is the number of days scheduled messages can sit in the send queue before being deleted.
Schedule Task You can manually run the following processes:
  • Process Import Queue to immediately start an import of everything that is in the import queue.
  • Add or Update All Mapped System Messages to immediately start an import of all mapped system messages.
    Important: You must configure your system messages before you can run Add or Update All Mapped System Messages.

    Running Add or Update All Mapped System Messages will overwrite all mapped message rules in Bronto with the content from the templates in Magento. Therefore, if you have already imported and updated Magento message templates in Bronto, it's best to use Test Import on the Advanced page to import additional Magento templates.

  • Search Queued Message to search for a queued cart, wish list, reorder, review, or care tip message using a customer email address.
  • Replenish Coupon Pool to replenish a selected coupon generator by the specified Replenish Amount.
  • Sync Product Catalog Fields to builds the Bronto Product Catalog fields and mappings from the selected product mappings.
  • Preview Recommendation to generate example related product API tags for a simulated recommendation.
  • Index Recommendation Reports to run a recommendation index report.
  • Preview Configured Settings to display the current configuration across all modules as recognized by the Magento platform.
