Import and synchronize data

Import data

You can import data in Sitefinity CMS using one of the following:

Synchronize data

To sync data from external systems, you can use the SystemSourceKey property that every content type has. It is a string property that can hold up to 255 chars of ASCII-encoded data. You can store an identifier from an external system in it and use it to update the data in Sitefinity CMS, each time you do a sync with the external system. This field has a backing index, so data can be filtered and sorted with maximum performance.
