Import only specific products
Sometimes it is required to only re-import specific products into Sana.
This may be for debugging purposes or also sometimes required by the customer when some data is missing for specific products and a marketing campaign is already in place.
In one of our customizations we extended the Index Product Task like shown in the attached screenshot to temporarily only import the products listed in the task config.
Currently not having this functionality is quite annoying for debugging - as the task might be running for several hours and one would have to wait until it finished - then do the adjustments - and have it run again.

no - not at all.
It might be that thousands of products where updated, so I cannot use the "update index" functionality for this.
As you can see in my attached screenshot what I am requesting is being able to update only specific products - regardless if they have been updated or not.
Also for testing it would be very annoying and also sometimes not possible to every time update the items in NAV and/or Perfion.
The Product Import scheduled task has two options: 1. update index, 2. rebuild index. The update index option only updates changed data for procucts and imports any new products that were added to the catalog since the last import. Wouldn't using the "update index" functionality do exactly what you're requesting?
