Advanced data synchronization features

Learn about additional data sync options available with Sync for Commerce

Data synchronization is an automated daily process. A merchant can view the status of the recent sync operations in the Sync configuration UI, and your support team can check it on the Sync Health page of our Portal.

However, it is possible to get sync status information and even initiate syncs outside of the daily schedule using the Codat API.

Get sync status

You may want your system to be aware of the latest sync status for a merchant. You can get a list of syncs and their status by making an API call to the Get sync status endpoint:

GET /meta/companies/{companyId}/sync/commerce/status

The response provides a list of syncs and their status information:

"companyId": "0498e921-9b53-4396-a412-5g3g6094c1b3",
"commerceSyncId": "af888de-4d1b-44e8-8b4q-717463af00c5",
"syncId": "afe076de-4d2c-44d9-7e3a-717463af11c5",
"syncStatusCode": 2000,
"syncStatus": "Success",
"syncUtc": "2023-04-12T10:52:54.5359678Z",
"dataPushed": true

Initiating a sync

You may need to perform a manual sync for a merchant from the date of their last successful sync to a specified date. You can do this by calling the Initiate new sync endpoint:

POST /companies/{companyId}/sync/commerce/latest

The start of the sync date range is determined as the date of the last successful sync. If there were no previous successful syncs, the date configured in the synchronization schedule is used.

You can set the end of the sync date range by including a syncTo date in the request body. If no date is provided, the current time UtcNow is used. For example:

"syncTo": "2022-01-01T12:00:00.000Z"

You can also initiate a sync for a specified date range by making an API call to the Initiate sync for specific range endpoint:

POST /meta/companies/{companyId}/sync/commerce/historic

You will need to specify the sync range start and end dates in the request body, for example:

"start": "2022-01-01T12:00:00.000Z",
"end": "2022-01-02T12:00:00.000Z"
