    Target Recommendation Feed Via URL

    abhishekg98410891 Level 1
      1. In the create Feed section, if instead of FTP, we select URL than which URL we should have it? Could it be URL of AEM DAM if we save our file there?

          HI Abhishek,

           

          As long as the feed contains data in the right format and the URL does not require authentication you should be good to go. However if the URL requires authentication then you should opt for FTP because I don't think we setup credentials for URL method.

           

          Hope that helps.

           

          Thanks

            Hi Shanker,

            As in the recommendation Feed sample by Adobe, first column is for "## RECSentity.id"

             

            Could you please let me know, what different datatypes are possible in "## RECSentity.id"? i.e Alphanumeric/numeric/character etc.??

            Could we use Page URL in  "## RECSentity.id"?

              Hi Abhishek,

               

              Entity ID is the product ID which is used to identify the products uniquely on the page. It can be Alphanumeric but not suggested to be a URL. You can refer below document for more details on entity ID

               

              Entity Attributes

               

              Hope that helps.

               

              Thanks,

                Hi Shanker

                 

                I tried uploading a feed via URL approach

                Below are the steps I took

                 

                In the Publish instance of AEM DAM I uploaded a .csv file (feedwomenpage.csv).

                PFB URL of feed http://localhost:4503/content/dam/we-retail/feedwomenpage.csv

                Feed is available, if I check putting this URL in chrome browser

                (I created a sample feed after downloading the format from Adobe Target console itself)

                 

                I provided this URL in Adobe Target console, in creation of feed section via csv and URL

                In schedule section, I scheduled it for daily, and provide time after 5 minutes of the time when I created this

                It does not ask for any mapping, environment all host groups and I saved it

                 

                The Feed status Changes from Waiting for downlaod --> Unknown Error (PFA image of error)

                 

                Kindly help me in understanding, where I am going wrong, Why this "Unknown Error" is coming??

                    Hi Abhishek,

                     

                    The URL seems to be a local host which cannot be accessed externally. Could you please upload the feed on a URL which is accessible over the internet without authentication.

                     

                    The unknown error is most likely being caused because recommendation is not able to access the local host

                     

                    Thanks
