New to the print automation & publishing process?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you with that. Together with our InDesign professional partners we can set everything up for you and help you to utilize the power of print automation.
The data model of this connector has been tailored to be used with the EasyCatalog plugin for AdobeⓇ InDesignⓇ, but can be used for other purposes as well.
Third party tools or licenses (Akeneo, Adobe tools or plugins) are not included but we can help obtaining them.
Who we are? What we do?
The connection to Akeneo PIM is managed through the Akeneo PIM API and no installation into your Akeneo environment is needed.
Akeneo PIM API needs to be accessible from the internet to use the connector as a service. If this is not possible, we can discuss installing the connector as a local service to your environment.
Contact us at email@example.com and we will create an account for you.
On the first login you need to define the basic connection to your Akeneo PIM installation:
- Akeneo Version
- Akeneo Edition
- Akeneo URL address
(NOTE! One account can only connect to one Akeneo. The Akeneo address can only be changed by admin users after it has been set)
- Akeneo API connection details (client ID, client secret, username, password) created in your Akeneo instance connection settings
Create a configuration by defining
- Configuration name
- Akeneo Channel
- Selected languages
- Akeneo root catalog
- Akeneo category (Optional)
- Selected attributes (Optional)
- Product completeness requirement
- Quality score (where available)
After saving the configuration the “Endpoint URLs” tab will give you links to the data (products, categories, attributes and attribute groups). You can select whether you want the definitions of all categories and attributes or only the ones defined in the configuration.
Copy and paste these URL addresses to the EasyCatalog plugin to fetch the data.
Existing configuration can be modified freely. After the modifications have been saved, the data endpoints will provide the data based on the modified configuration. Re-fetch the data in EasyCatalog to replicate the changes.
