Step 1 - Click on the ‘+’ Button in the lower right corner to add a new field.
The new field will be added at the bottom of the mapping.
Step 2 - Click the new field, and set field name and value type
Two settings must be added before you can start filling the field:
1. Choose a field name. The name must be changed otherwise, an error will occur before saving the field.
2. Select a Value type from the drop-down menu. You choose 4 value types:
- Choose this type for only and all fields containing text. While it will allow you perform certain string functions on the field (Find all functions explained in the functions section), it will not be possible to perform mathematical operations with the field (such as multiplication, additions and subtraction, and greater than / lesser than rules in filter, overrides etc.) Choose this field also when having numbers that are only used as an identifier of the product such as EAN codes, Product IDs or SKU numbers.
- Int64 stands for Integer 64 bit. Choose this type for all number fields for which the values should not, or do not, have any decimals (Examples can be Amount of products in stock or units sold). Don't use this field for values that can contain decimals.
- Choose this type when the field is allowed to have decimals. This is the most commonly used Value Type, as it is the right Type for all fields containing an indication of monetary value (such as prices, costs, etc). Don't use this value type for value like EAN code or SKU number, since these are identifiers for which calculations are not necessary.
- A boolean is a value which can only have two representations: 1 or 0. This field can be used for indicating a simple Yes/No, True or False. This is the rarest Value Type, as it is the most restricting to the potential values that the field can have.
Step 3 - Select the corresponding field from (one of) your connected data feed(s).
After clicking on the search bar, a drop-down will be shown automatically. Here you can select one or multiple fields (when using a formula) from the connected feed that you want to use in the mapping of the Omnia ID field.
Step 4 - Test the mapping for errors
Before being able to save the mapping, you have to test whether it is able to run. Test and validate the field by clicking on 'TEST (BEFORE SAVE)'. If you wish to change the ‘Test value’ you can delete the value from the box, replace it with another value.
Click ‘TEST (BEFORE SAVE)’ to continue
Step 5 - Save mapping
After clicking the ‘TEST (BEFORE SAVE)’ button, the test result will be shown below. In the example, the indication is ‘SUCCESS’ and the resulting output is ‘12345’ (shown directly left of the Test button). Since the input is also ‘12345’ (the Test Value) and we do not want to make any modification to this value, we can conclude that the mapping works as intended. Now the mapping can be saved.
Click ‘Save’ will save the mapping and close the pop-up
