Predefined import jobs

Pacemaker provides predefined import jobs ready to use out of the box.

  • Sample import files (CSV) are included in the installed composer packages

By importing sample import files, you will import the Magento sample data, like they would get created by running the following command:
<PATH_TO_MAGENTO_ROOT>/vendor/bin/import-simple sampledata:deploy


Copy the sample files to the monitored import directory

Copy all sample files into the import directory, Pacemaker will then automatically initialize the import process pipelines for each CSV files import bundle.

  • Catalog import bundle (attributes, categories, products)

Sample data set 1

The first sample data set contains all imports (attribute sets, attributes, categories, and products) bundled in multiple bundles.


The following command, called from the root directory of your Magento installation, depending on the type of import you want to perform:
cp -R vendor/techdivision/pacemaker-import-catalog/sample-data/bunch1/* var/pacemaker/import

Sample data set 2


The following sample data set includes only category imports, bundled into two bunches:
cp -R vendor/techdivision/pacemaker-import-catalog/sample-data/bunch2/* var/pacemaker/import
  • Price import / inventory (stock) import

The sample data for the price and inventory import include only one import file.

It is also possible to split these imports into multiple files and optionally group them into multiple bundles into several bundles, as it gets processed for the catalog import.

Use the following command for the price import:
cp -R vendor/techdivision/pacemaker-import-price/sample-data/bunch1/* var/pacemaker/import
Use the following command for inventory (stock) import:
cp -R vendor/techdivision/pacemaker-import-inventory/sample-data/bunch1/* var/pacemaker/import

After copying the import files into the target directory, you can observe the process by executing the pipeline:status command.

Alternatively, login into the backend (Magento’s admin UI) and open the System  Pacemaker  Pipelines Grid.
