Filter to import only X records from a datafeed

Submitted by CashNexus on Thu, 2020-01-09 21:14 in

Hello David,

Let me ask you - is it possible to add a filter to import only X records (no matter how much records in a datafeed) ?
For example, I'd like to import only 10 000 records.
There is a "trial" restriction - but it's the PHP code, not a filter what can be set for some specific datafeeds.

Wish you the prosperous New 2020 Year !
Best regards
Serge

Hi Serge,

Happy New Year to you too.

There's an import limit filter described in this comment...

Cheers,
David.

Hello David,
a small issue found - this importLimit Filter overrides Trial Import settings what PT interface makes by
http://example.com/admin/feeds_import.php?limit=10&filename=Example01.xml
because if importLimit Filter set to 1000 records - it anyway imports 1000 records, not ?limit=10 if we try Trial Import.
Could this issue be solved somehow ?
Thank you as always,
Best regards,
Serge

Hello Serge,

Without any complex changes to the import process if you simply replace the filter as follows it won't apply the limit if currently set to 10 (Trial Import)...

  /*************************************************/
  /* importLimit */
  /*************************************************/
  $filter_names["importLimit"] = "Import Limit";
  function filter_importLimitConfigure($filter_data)
  {
    print "Max Products:<br />";
    print "<input type='text' size='40' name='text' value='".widget_safe($filter_data["text"])."' />";
    widget_errorGet("text");
  }
  function filter_importLimitValidate($filter_data)
  {
    if (!$filter_data["text"])
    {
      widget_errorSet("text","required field");
    }
  }
  function filter_importLimitExec($filter_data,$text)
  {
    global $admin_importLimit;
    if ($admin_importLimit != 10)
    {
      $admin_importLimit = intval($filter_data["text"]);
    }
    return $text;
  }

Cheers,
David.
