Stock import

csv#

backup#

Name of the backup for sucessfully imported files

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/backup = 
  • Default:
  • Type: integer - Name of the backup file, optionally with date/time placeholders
  • Since: 2019.04

After a CSV file was imported successfully, you can move it to another location, so it won't be imported again and isn't overwritten by the next file that is stored at the same location in the file system.

You should use an absolute path to be sure but can be relative path if you absolutely know from where the job will be executed from. The name of the new backup location can contain placeholders understood by the PHP strftime() function to create dynamic paths, e.g. "backup/%Y-%m-%d" which would create "backup/2000-01-01". For more information about the strftime() placeholders, please have a look into the PHP documentation of the strftime() function.

Note: If no backup name is configured, the file or directory won't be moved away. Please make also sure that the parent directory and the new directory are writable so the file or directory could be moved.

container/options#

List of file container options for the stock import files

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/container/options = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - Associative list of option name/value pairs
  • Since: 2019.04

Some container/content type allow you to hand over additional settings for configuration. Please have a look at the article about container/content files for more information.

container/type#

Nave of the container type to read the data from

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/container/type = File
  • Default: File
  • Type: string - Container type name
  • Since: 2019.04

The container type tells the importer how it should retrieve the data. There are currently two container types that support the necessary CSV content:

  • File
  • Zip

decorators/excludes#

Excludes decorators added by the "common" option from the stock import CSV job controller

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/excludes = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2019.04

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to remove a decorator added via "controller/jobs/common/decorators/default" before they are wrapped around the job controller.

 controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/excludes = array( 'decorator1' )

This would remove the decorator named "decorator1" from the list of common decorators ("\Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Common\Decorator*") added via "controller/jobs/common/decorators/default" to the job controller.

decorators/global#

Adds a list of globally available decorators only to the stock import CSV job controller

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/global = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2019.04

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to wrap global decorators ("\Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Common\Decorator*") around the job controller.

 controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/global = array( 'decorator1' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator1" defined by "\Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Common\Decorator\Decorator1" only to the job controller.

decorators/local#

Adds a list of local decorators only to the stock import CSV job controller

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/local = Array
(
)
  • Default: Array
  • Type: array - List of decorator names
  • Since: 2019.04

Decorators extend the functionality of a class by adding new aspects (e.g. log what is currently done), executing the methods of the underlying class only in certain conditions (e.g. only for logged in users) or modify what is returned to the caller.

This option allows you to wrap local decorators ("\Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Stock\Import\Csv\Decorator*") around the job controller.

 controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/decorators/local = array( 'decorator2' )

This would add the decorator named "decorator2" defined by "\Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Stock\Import\Csv\Decorator\Decorator2" only to the job controller.

location#

File or directory where the content is stored which should be imported

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/location = /var/www/aimeos/aimeos-core/ext/ai-controller-jobs/controller/jobs/tests/Controller/Jobs/Stock/Import/Csv/_testfiles
  • Default:
  • Type: string - Absolute file or directory path
  • Since: 2019.04

You need to configure the CSV file or directory with the CSV files that should be imported. It should be an absolute path to be sure but can be relative path if you absolutely know from where the job will be executed from.

name#

Class name of the used stock suggestions scheduler controller implementation

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/name = Standard
  • Default: Standard
  • Type: string - Last part of the class name
  • Since: 2019.04

Each default job controller can be replace by an alternative imlementation. To use this implementation, you have to set the last part of the class name as configuration value so the controller factory knows which class it has to instantiate.

For example, if the name of the default class is

 \Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Stock\Import\Csv\Standard

and you want to replace it with your own version named

 \Aimeos\Controller\Jobs\Stock\Import\Csv\Mycsv

then you have to set the this configuration option:

 controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/name = Mycsv

The value is the last part of your own class name and it's case sensitive, so take care that the configuration value is exactly named like the last part of the class name.

The allowed characters of the class name are A-Z, a-z and 0-9. No other characters are possible! You should always start the last part of the class name with an upper case character and continue only with lower case characters or numbers. Avoid chamel case names like "MyCsv"!

skip-lines#

Number of rows skipped in front of each CSV files

controller/jobs/stock/import/csv/skip-lines = 0
  • Default: 0
  • Type: integer - Number of rows
  • Since: 2019.04

Some CSV files contain header information describing the content of the column values. These data is for informational purpose only and can't be imported into the database. Using this option, you can define the number of lines that should be left out before the import begins.
