To create product in BC from Revel, the first step is to review the BC documentation here: https://developer.bigcommerce.com/api/v2/#create-a-product. The minimum required fields are: name, price, categories, type, availability, and weight.
The categories could be mapped in our engine with the ‘Value Transform’ function. Matching of categories from Revel to BC done by client internally and then uploaded as a CSV into that function.
Revel connector in DSYNC is a cron connector (Scheduler) so the product endpoint which is connected to BC endpoint must have the schedule configured. That’s the only requirement there. DSYNC requests new/updated products from Revel by the configured schedule and pushes to BC accordingly. There should be a shared key set on the BC products endpoint – DSYNC suggest using the SKU.
Graphics in Bigcommerce utilize a separate endpoint which is currently not available on our connector.To see the data which came into DSYNC from Revel and out to BigCommerce, you can click on the ‘More’ link next to the sync status (done/error) and from the drop-down select either download source or download output. Source contains the data which came into DSYNC, output contains the data which were sent from DSYNC after the mapping ran.
