Bulk operations

Recommended reading 

This section describes how to work with bulk operations when using the Episerver Service API, a service layer used for integration of Episerver with external systems, such as PIM, DAM and ERPs.

How it works

Integrations with for example PIM systems often involve transfer of large data volumes. The Service API allows for bulk operations that can take a long time to complete. To facilitate this, a bulk operation returns a task identifier that you can use to get the task's status and associated messages. 

Example model

using System;

public enum MessageType
    Progress = 0,
    Debug = 1,
    Info = 2,
    Warning = 3,
    Success = 4,
    Error = 5

public class JobMessage
    public DateTime TimestampUtc { get; set; }
    public MessageType MessageType { get; set; }
    public string Message { get; set; }
    public string StageName { get; set; }
    public int StageIndex { get; set; }
    public int StageCount { get; set; }
    public int StageProgress { get; set; }
    public int StageTotalProgress { get; set; }
    public string ExceptionMessage { get; set; }
    public string ExceptionStackTrace { get; set; }

Note: Only consider a task completed if the message type is number 4 or 5.
