Configuring Environment Settings for Data Export

Configuring Environment Settings for Data Export

Edit the conf/misc/importexporttool.config file and configure the environment settings for the system from which you are exporting data. You need to configure:

  • The database connection details. For example, for a MySQL database named EP6 on the local machine running on port 3306, your settings should look similar to this:
    db.connection.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/EP6?AutoReconnect=true&useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf-8
    db.connection.username=root
    db.connection.password=root
    db.connection.driver_class=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
                
  • The search server URL. Set the search.host property to the URL of the Elastic Path search server web application. For example:
    search.host=http://localhost:8080/searchserver
    
  • The VFS configuration for the Elastic Path deployment that contains the data you want to export. For example:
    asset.vfs.protocol=ftp
    asset.vfs.host=localhost
    asset.vfs.port=21
    asset.vfs.username=ftpuser
    asset.vfs.password=password
    asset.vfs.rootpath=c:/localassets/assets
    image.asset.subfolder=images
    digitalgoods.asset.subfolder=digitalassets
                
Note:
These settings must match the corresponding settings in Elastic Path. To view the setting values:
  1. Log in to Commerce Manager.
  2. Click the Configuration.
  3. Click System Configuration.
