How can I split a single ITscope export into multiple different exports?

Last modified: 22. July 2022

When a large export is required, it can make sense to divide it into several smaller exports.

What should be considered during the implementation?

We recommend splitting a ‘large’ ITscope export into several smaller exports.

Please consider the contract-dependent limit per export for all combinations of data formats and export formats.

The following article elaborates on these limits in more detail: https://guide.itscope.com/en/kb/api-limitations/

When setting up a data export, the export split should not be made at supplier level, but at product selection level.

For example, the following distribution of exports according to category would be advisable:

  • One export with X suppliers for “Printers” and a separate one (with the same suppliers) for “Printer accessories”
  • One export with X suppliers for “Mobile phones” and a separate one (with the same suppliers) for “Mobile phone accessories”
  • One export with X suppliers for “Notebook” and “Tablet” and a separate one (with the same suppliers) for “Notebook accessories”.

We do not recommend splitting exports by supplier, as a product that appears in a product selection from one export with supplier X can also appear in the other export for supplier Y ( therefore it will be exported twice/multiple times).

For example:

  • One export with supplier X for “Printer” and another export with supplier Y for “Printer”
    –> In this case, it is possible that a product is included in both exports because supplier X and supplier Y both offer it.
