itemVariationSuppliers

Use the itemVariationSuppliers data format creator to export the links between suppliers and variations and save this data in the cloud. Depending on the plentyBI edition that has been booked, the raw data file is stored in the cloud for 6 to 48 months. Therefore, the data must be processed before this period of time ends. More detailed information on the storage periods are available on the Managing reports page of the manual. The following tables contain further information about the format.
