Bazaarvoice offers export files that contain product data and consumer-generated content (CGC). You can use these export files to

  • Extract data for inclusion in catalogs or email campaigns
  • Analyze consumer sentiment
  • Integrate data with and improve site search or navigation

  • Power content on your website without the use of the Bazaarvoice Conversations display infrastructure

The following content exports are available:

  • Standard client feed —Facilitates the mapping of reviews and dimensions to the appropriate products and product categories. This feed contains product-specific information, content counts, and CGC details.
  • Ratings-only export feed—Contains product-specific, ratings-related content, including product IDs, number of reviews, average overall ratings, number of reviewers, and maximum rating values. This feed is most often used to power the inline ratings display.
  • Displayable content export (DCE)—Provides a way to store CGC locally and display the content without calling the Bazaarvoice Conversations display infrastructure. It is designed to be consumed in bulk periodically, and the CGC is intended for public display on websites and other applications.

Standard client feed

The standard client feed is an XML file that facilitates the mapping of reviews and dimensions to the appropriate products and product categories. This feed contains the following data:

  • Product-specific information, such as names, descriptions, and product IDs
  • Content counts, such as the number of reviews, questions, answers, and campaign items
  • Consumer-generated content details, such as individual reviews

Data from a standard client feed is useful for completing tasks such as:

  • Extracting customer reviews for inclusion in catalogs and email campaigns
  • Conducting sentiment analysis on content text
  • Integrating data with site search or navigation

In addition to a full client feed, which includes all content, Bazaarvoice can upload an incremental client feed that contains only content changes that have occurred since the last client feed was generated.

Note: If you use standard client feeds to build your data store, you should have the ability to consume a full client feed in addition to incremental feeds. Bazaarvoice recommends this best practice as a way to reset data stores in the event of unprocessed or lost feed content.

Enable and schedule standard client feeds

Note: This is a Bazaarvoice-internal configuration option. Contact Bazaarvoice Client Care to enable and configure these settings.

Bazaarvoice recommends you wait until Monday at 12 AM Central Time (CST: UTC-6 or CDT: UTC-5) to use the standard client feed. Waiting until Monday improves the chances of complete feed generation.

To receive standard client feeds from Bazaarvoice, you must enable and schedule them, as follows:

  1. Log in to the Workbench and then click Settings » Manage Applications. The Site Manager page of the Conversations configuration hub is displayed.
  2. Edit the implementation for which you want to receive standard client feeds.
  3. Click Technical Setup on the left side of the page and then click the Export Feeds tab.
  4. To enable and schedule full client feeds:
    • Click the Enabled toggle switch in the Full Standard Content Feed section of the page.
  5. To enable and schedule incremental feeds:
    • Click the Enabled toggle switch in the Incremental Standard Content Feed section of the page.
  6. Deploy the changes to the implementation.
  7. Download feeds from the /feeds directory of the SFTP server:
    • If your data is hosted in the US, use the following URLs:
      • Staging server—sftp-stg.bazaarvoice.com
      • Production server—sftp.bazaarvoice.com
    • If your data is hosted in Europe, use the following URLs:
      • Staging server—sftp7-stg.bazaarvoice.com
      • Production server—sftp7.bazaarvoice.com

    Be sure to connect to SFTP using port 22. If you do not know your SFTP credentials or where your data is hosted, contact Bazaarvoice Client Care .

Structure of standard client feeds

This page contains snippets and descriptions of different parts of the standard client feed based on Bazaarvoice code and the feed’s schema .

Note: Some XML elements, such as <Name> or <ExternalId>, and their definitions are part of different Complex Objects of the feed. Therefore, they will be mentioned in different sections of this topic.

      <ReviewText>I have looked all over the internet - YouTube, Google videos and manufacturer websites for speaker wiring details and instructions. NOTHING! SnapAV has supplied all our needs for not only hardware, but a clear instruction on how to do it and troubleshooting the system to determine the best material for the job. This video is the best tutorial to understand wiring audio in a corporate setting! Thanks guys! SkyTouch Solutions skytouch.org

      <ReviewText>Not sure if the bag was redesigned or if the other poster just stuffed it too full... I haven't had any complaints with the plastic multi compartment tray, it holds all the little parts that I need with room for even some rarely used parts. My helper asked me the other day where I got the bag and I believe he will be ordering one soon.</ReviewText>

Ratings-only export feed

A ratings-only export feed is a daily, XML-based file that is exported from Bazaarvoice and contains product-specific, ratings-related content including values such as:

  • Product IDs
  • Number of reviews
    • Total number of reviews
    • Number of reviews that feature only ratings
  • Number of reviewers who would recommend the product
  • Average overall ratings
  • Maximum rating values

Data from a ratings-only export feed is useful for completing the following tasks:

  • Enabling star ratings on category pages of your website
  • Improving site search and navigation
  • Providing snapshots, averages, and other values that assist with sorting
Note: Your critical processes and product detail pages (PDP) should not rely on export feeds. While Bazaarvoice tries to consistently generate these feeds, server loads and other variables can delay the export. Only use export feeds for non-critical processes so that a delayed feed update does not critically impact any of your systems, processes, PDPs, or services. In addition, do not use export feeds for display purposes. Instead, use inline ratings to produce small display elements, such as summary stars.

The following values represent the default configuration for a ratings-only feed:

  • Frequency – Daily
  • History – Full
  • Format – XML
  • Compression – GZIP
  • Delivery location – Bazaarvoice SFTP Server
  • Content type - Reviews or Questions/Answers
  • Moderation Status – Approved
  • Inactive / Disabled – Does not include inactive products

Retrieve a ratings-only export feed

Retrieve your ratings-only export feeds on a recurring basis from the SFTP location where they are stored after Bazaarvoice generates them. Download and process this feed on a daily basis to update the areas of your website that use the information. Supply a public SSH key if you want to automate this process by using SSH entry without a password.

Download the feed file from the /feeds directory on the Bazaarvoice SFTP location:

  • If your data is hosted in the US, use the following URLs:
    • Staging server—sftp-stg.bazaarvoice.com
    • Production server—sftp.bazaarvoice.com
  • If your data is hosted in Europe, use the following URLs:
    • Staging server—sftp7-stg.bazaarvoice.com
    • Production server—sftp7.bazaarvoice.com

Be sure to connect to SFTP using port 22. If you do not know your SFTP credentials or where your data is hosted, contact Bazaarvoice Client Care .

XML schema and example

The XML schema for your ratings-only export feed is based on the syndication feed schema, which resides at the following location:

_http://www.bazaarvoice.com/xs/PRR/SyndicationFeed/_

where __ is the appropriate Bazaarvoice release number. For example, the XML schema for the syndication feed that is associated with version 14.7 resides at the following location:

http://www.bazaarvoice.com/xs/PRR/SyndicationFeed/14.7

Here is a simple example of a ratings-only export feed:

Displayable Content Export (DCE)

For performance, flexibility, or security reasons, your company might need to limit dependencies on third-party services that power your websites. The Bazaarvoice Displayable Content Export provides a way to store consumer-generated content (CGC) locally and display the content without calling the Bazaarvoice Conversations display infrastructure.

The DCE is designed to be consumed in bulk periodically, and the CGC is intended for public display on websites and other applications. Do not use the DCE with internal applications, such as CRM systems or analytics dashboards, because it does not contain all content relevant to those applications. You can obtain the DCE through the use of an HTTPS interface, enabling the request and transfer the content files.

Benefits of the DCE

The DCE offers the following benefits:

  • A service optimized for downloading displayable content in bulk
  • A single source of displayable native and syndicated CGC from the Bazaarvoice network, which does not include personally identifiable information (PII)
  • Independence from the Bazaarvoice real-time display (API and hosted display)
  • Easy identification of configurable elements, such as ratings dimensions
  • Data normalization to facilitate transmission and import into a relational database

The DCE comprises normalized content, including native content and syndicated content, configuration data, and product data. The DCE does not include the following content:

  • Pending CGC
  • Rejected CGC
  • Approved CGC that was not syndicated due to other reasons (such as content codes)

How to use the DCE

To obtain and import the DCE, you must use the DCE HTTPS interface to securely request and transfer the manifest and content files. The DCE provides content in a machine-readable format (JSON), which you will then use in an application that you must build, host, and maintain. Therefore, your team should have the following proficiencies:

  • Web application development
  • Client/server interaction based on the HTTPS protocol
  • The ability to process JSON
  • Data storage, retrieval, and manipulation

Workflow

The following diagram illustrates the contents of the DCE and how to import and display the content:

Native and syndicated content is aggregated and normalized to create the DCE. A manifest file is also created and provides a map of the data and includes a URL for each file in the DCE.

To import and display CGC included in the DCE, you must perform these steps:

  1. Request the manifest file.
  2. Request the content files that are listed in the manifest, which contain CGC, configuration data, and product data.
  3. Import the CGC, configuration, and product data into your database.
  4. Assemble the data relevant to the product that is displayed and render the CGC on your website or application.

Refer to the Bazaarvoice Developer site for complete information and instructions about the HTTPS interface.
