Set up the PIMt sync job in Configured Commerce

  • Updated

As part of the onboarding process, your implementation team (whether Optimizely or your partner) must set up the job that sends data into Optimizely Product Information Management (PIM), such as your websites, related product types, and languages. Your partner follows these steps to set up this connection.

This job should only be set to point to the customer's environment, not to a partner QA or test site. For more information on the additional PIM jobs and how to publish products from the PIM, see Publish Optimizely Product Information Management Updates to Configured Commerce.
