Is there a way in which you can use a second feeds import, to update nodes created during a first import?

In my first import, I create nodes and save a custom ID (from old system), and I want to reuse that custom ID in the second import to update the existing nodes and add a taxonomy value.

To update existing content using feeds importer, you will have to mark Customer ID field as a Unique Key.

  • Where can you set that? I only see the option to put it as Unique Key – Joni Haeck Oct 30 '15 at 7:24
  • and do you need to do this in both importers or only in the 2nd one? – Joni Haeck Oct 30 '15 at 7:30
  • Yes you are right, thats Unique Key. – Nikhil Banait Oct 30 '15 at 7:30
  • That doesn't work, it keeps on creating new nodes, instead of updating the existing ones based in the Custom ID – Joni Haeck Oct 30 '15 at 7:34
  • Have you selected Update existing content in module configuration? – Nikhil Banait Oct 30 '15 at 7:37
