SRM MDM 3.0 BMECAT Repository Schema

Hello at all,

I have currently run the SRM-MDM 3.0 with the standard respository delivered as archive on the install CD. I still have created some data with the data manager and it runs all very well.

Now I want to import a catalog based on BMECat 1.2 standard. I Have the complex catalog data XML from the vendor Bechtle and the images folder for the articles.

When running the Import Manager there are many fields and tables in the source xml that do not excist in the destination hierachy (repository).

My question is how do I create a repository based on the BMECat 1.2 standard to import the vendor catalog xml ?

What I still tryed was. Creating a new repository. It's empty except of the standard table like Admin, Images, Products etc.

Than go to Transport -> Import Repository Schema -> choose the vendor XML

That doesn' work. I get the Error Message: "There are problems with the transport (XML) which prevent it from being processed"

I have learned that an XML schema data is described with the ending .xsd but when I try to import the databrowser looks for .xml endings.

Could someone please advice what's I have done wrong?

Thanks a lot.

    Hi Rico,

    You cannot create the repository with the XML file you have because MDM needs XML i.e. Schema Migration File. There are tools available which can convert Schema Migration File to XML but the reverse is not true. The only option you have is to create the fields and tables manually into the existing repository using MDM Console. Just Unload the repository and modify the structure as per the XML file received from vendor.
