Hi @mikeho 

Yes we can do using Business events 

For example

 

If you want to update the Inventory record on daily basis for example at the end of the day

  1. Create a Business event with ‘Trigger by Scheduler” 
  2. Add an Import scenario and give the mapping which you need to update on the stock Item 
  3. Add a scheduler in the “ Schedulers” Tab at the end of the day ( One or two schedules)to run an import scenario to update the fields. ( Like 9 pm everyday)

Please review and let me know if you need any additional help here.

Thanks

Thank you, @manikantad18. It looks like my mistake was creating the import scenario before creating the business event - I couldn’t figure out ho to select that import scenario I had already created.

Maybe you can help me with this as well - the GI I created is to update some fields on Stock Items. When selecting the Screen Name, would that be the name of the GI or the Stock Items I’m trying to update?

@manikantad18 - is there something I need to do to make the specific Import Scenario visible under the Subscribers? When I set the Type to “Import Scenario” and lookup under Subscriber ID for the specific Import Scenario I want to schedule it is not showing up.

Actually, it looks like I don’t need to do this through a Business Event?? I can create an Automation Schedule from the Process Import Scenarios screen (SM206035).
