The Download sessions form and the Upload sessions form show information about data distribution jobs that are in progress or have been completed. A run of a job is referred to as a session. Use the information in these forms for troubleshooting. You can also run a session again or cancel a session from these forms.

To display complete status information in these forms, you must run the batch job that processes status messages for Commerce Data Exchange. For more information, see Process status messages for data exchange.

This topic includes the following information:
