Set up Async Server profile [AX 2012]

Updated: November 24, 2014

A profile for Async Server specifies how frequently Async Client checks for data packages to download and creates data packages to upload. You must configure data download and upload intervals for each instance of Async Client in the environment.

Async Client is part of Commerce Data Exchange, the asynchronous system that shares data between the Retail essentials database and retail channel databases. Async Client is installed for each channel, and communicates with the channel database. Commerce Data Exchange also includes Async Server, which is installed at headquarters and communicates with the Retail essentials database in each store. For more information about Commerce Data Exchange, see the Commerce Data Exchange documentation on TechNet.

  1. Click Retail essentials > Data synchronization > Setup > Store integration > Async Server profile.

  2. Click New to create a new profile.

  3. Enter a name and description for the profile.

  4. In the Data download interval in minutes field, enter the interval at which Async Client checks for data packages that are ready to be downloaded from Retail essentials to the channel. Data packages are downloaded from the working folder for Commerce Data Exchange.

  5. In the Data upload interval in minutes field, enter the interval at which Async Client creates and uploads data from the channel. Data packages are uploaded to the working folder for Commerce Data Exchange.
