CLI Usage

Create a marketplace from a "Simple-B2C" template.

npx @ordercloud/seeding seed Simple-B2C -u={username} -p={password}

Create a marketplace based on data in a local file. Looks for files based on the directory the command is run from.

npx @ordercloud/seeding seed seed-data-file.yml -u={username} -p={password}

Create a marketplace based on a public url.

npx @ordercloud/seeding seed https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ordercloud-api/ordercloud-seed/main/seeds/Simple-B2C.yml -u={username} -p={password}

Download the data from an existing marketplace to a seed file.

npx @ordercloud/seeding download new-file-to-create.yml -i={existing-marketplace-id} -u={username} -p={password}

Validate that a local file would seed successfully.

npx @ordercloud/seeding validate my-file.yml

Javascript API Usage

import { download, seed, validate, SerializedMarketplace } from "@ordercloud/seeding";

var myData: SerializedMarketplace = { ... };

await seed({
   portalJWT: "xxxxxx", 
   rawData: myData,
   logger: (message:string, type: MessageType) => {

Marketplace Templates
