Warehouse

With syncs of the type Warehouse, you import new storage locations or update existing ones.

In order to create or update storage locations via ElasticSync, a warehouse must be created.

1. Fields for storage location matching

Table 1 explains the fields that are available for matching storage locations. During the import, plentymarkets checks if the imported data record already exists based on the matching field.

For further information on the terms dimensions, levels and storage locations, refer to the Setting up a warehouse page of the manual.
