Automating Feed Import of Active Data

You can use the ImportActiveData pipelet to automate the import of active data feeds into an instance, either via a job or a pipeline.

If you are testing data on a Staging instance, you might need to import additional custom attributes not included in the Production instance for testing purposes. In this case, you must rebuild the product index after import. Incremental indexing doesn't automatically rebuild based on imported feed data.

If you are implementing feed import in an existing system, you can easily edit a copy of your existing product import pipelines to automate feed import. If you are creating a new project, Salesforce recommends using the Simple Feed Integration project available in the code library as a starting point for product and active data feeds.
