How do I set my data feed file to be refreshed only and not uploaded?

If you wish to disable the FTP/SFTP submit/upload feature of the feed and use the Feed URL only for HTTPS fetch, follow these steps:

  • Go to Manage Feed > Advanced Settings.
  • Change the Upload by FTP setting to No - Update data feed file only.
  • Click the Update button to save the settings.

Background Information

All feeds have a Feed URL which you can use for any purpose to directly download the data feed file.

The Feed URL can be found on the Manage Feed page. Additional details like file size, date created, and expiration date are on the Manage Feed > Download Data Feed File page.

Feeds to destinations (like Google and Bing) that support FTP/SFTP upload are configured by default to submit via FTP/SFTP. If the FTP/SFTP settings are invalid, the feed will auto-disable and notify you after a series of errors.

To avoid this, you can use the setting above to disable the FTP/SFTP upload. Then, you can provide the Feed URL to your ad agency, an alternate destination, or use it for any other purpose.
