Magento Connector Auto Configuration

Follow these steps to use auto configuration when setting up your Magento Connector.

About this task

Note: If you have already configured a product feed to sync to Bronto, enabling a Connector will disable your product feed. During auto configuration, the Magento Connector will be set up for Product Data Imports.
If you are using Bronto Connector version 3.6.9 or later, you have the option of configuring your Magento Connector integration manually or automatically. When you select auto configuration, Bronto will automatically assign field mappings from Magento to Bronto, create new fields in Bronto, and assign settings based on industry best practices. You will have the option of deleting any auto configured mapping, settings, or newly created field.

If manual configuration is selected, you will need to manually create new fields in Bronto and build all mappings between Magento and Bronto. You will also need to configure Connector settings.

When you select auto configuration, the following will be configured:
  • Contact fields
  • Address fields
  • Opt-in settings
  • Creation of opt-in and opt-out lists
  • Order settings
  • Order field mappings
  • Products module settings

Some components including the Integrations and Messages sections cannot be auto-configured because of the uniqueness of each Magento storefront.

Procedure

  1. Connect your Magento account to Bronto by setting up a Magento connection.
