Hi All.  At this point I think I need to learn to use the API to manage my data.  I am not a PHP guru but I can get around magento ok.  I would like a reccomendation of a tool that will allow me to work with the Magento API and the data in my backend.  I was attempting to work with Pentaho but think that it is not compatible with the SOAP version magento uses.  Could someone recommend a way for me to interact with the API that will not be too painful, so that I can do basic things like:

- Upload products and attributes
- Upload product stocks
- Upload price changes (inclusing tier pricing)

The dataflow module is much to slow to use for me.....

Thanks

You can try creating your own php script (I know that you say that you aren’t a guru).
I made my conenctions with Php, Python and Java. At this moment I’m working harder with Php for that.

About the data flow.
How many products you change/update at time?

About 30,000.  Data flow struggles with it.  Surely someone must have created and shared PHP scripts for doing this?  I know what is in the WIKI but without a frontend, I am afraid I don’t know how to use it :(.

(Saludos en español entonces) wink

About that products quantity, I got a bad experience with Magento Dataflow.
I made import of 22k products, but using my own scripts, that make the inserts on all the tables. These scripts have my adaptation to use my select data source.
I understand that Magento Dataflow need more work for import too much products at once.
If you want to try, maybe I can help you or guide you with the process.

Hi,

I am working on product transfer with soap using Windev.
It is not a problem to transfer the data but it takes a lot of time...about 3-4sec for each product.
Is there a way to make it faster...i have about 2000 products to transfer.

Thanks
