API Based Catalog Data Delivery (Content)
To integrate Bloomreach content search via API feed ingestion, follow the steps given below.
You must format your catalog data properly in order for Bloomreach to ingest it. In this step, you will learn how to format a item record, which contains the data for a single content item. We also provide details on how to implement views, if your catalog uses them.
After properly formatting your catalog data, you must send it to Bloomreach for ingestion. There are two modes of delivery:
- PUT (full replacement of catalog data)
- PATCH (partial updates to catalog data)
Catalog data may be sent as an API payload, or as a file sent to a SFTP.
You can configure your content catalog data attributes such as title, description, etc. so that Bloomreach processes your data the way you need it. Work with your Bloomreach representative to configure the required attributes.
