Last update: 2023-11-29 03:30:46 UTC


This bundle allows running DataDefinitions (https://github.com/w-vision/DataDefinitions/) imports automatically for created assets.


composer require divanteltd/pimcore-auto-import

Enable and install the Bundle in admin panel or in command line:

./bin/console pimcore:bundle:enable AutoImportBundle
./bin/console pimcore:bundle:install AutoImportBundle


Bundle listens on event:

  • pimcore.asset.postAdd - handled by \Divante\AutoImport\EventListener\AssetEventListener::onPostAdd
  • import_definition.* - handled by \Divante\AutoImport\EventListener\ImportDefinitionsEventListener



After installation open up Website settings and fill in:

  • AutoImport_INTEGRATION - integration name
  • AutoImport_DEFINITION - name of the Import Defintion
  • AutoImport_FOLDER - folder which bundle will monitor for incoming files

Website settings example

From now on, all assets added to the configured folder (product in example above) will be used as an input to defined Import Definition. Executable in Process Manager will be createad automatically, alongside with additional folder structure, as subfolders of the one defined in Website Settings (if needed):

  • /processing - files being currently imported
  • /done - files sucessfully imported
  • /error - files which import ended with an error

Folder structure


Mutliple integrations

You can define additional watch folders and definitions, by adding additional Website Settings:

  • AutoImport_INTEGRATION_sampleName - last part is used to find other configuration lines
  • AutoImport_DEFINITION_sampleName
  • AutoImport_FOLDER_sampleName

Automatize asset creation based on filesystem changes

If external system is uploading the file to the filesystem directly (not using admin panel, GraphQL or WebDAV), you can easily synchronize the filesystem changes using Pimcore Devkit (https://github.com/DivanteLtd/pimcore-devkit):

./bin/console devkit:asset:synchronize /ERP/ingoing

Using Process Manager's build-in cron functionality, you can easily run this command periodically.

Two-way communication

If your integration is entirely based on file exchange, you can use this bundle with Scheduled Export (https://github.com/DivanteLtd/pimcore-scheduled-export) to configure complete integration in Pimcore admin panel.
