I am currently using FeedMe to import json data every night but I need to delete all entries before doing so to make sure that any orphaned entries are removed.

What is the best way to remove all entries within a section?

  • Can you not use the update setting for FeedMe, eg to check against a duplicate? Dec 14, 2015 at 16:45
  • Update will only update and existing entry. There may be a record removed from the data I am receiving and I will need to somehow account for that and remove it within craft. Dec 14, 2015 at 18:25

I think you're looking for the Delete Duplication Handling option. From the documentation:

Delete all existing entries in this section, adding only entries from this feed. Be careful. Use case: Events, or when only data from the current feed is required.

"I want only the entries from this feed in this section."

  • this will only delete entries that are recognized on both endpoint and in craft right? The issue is that if the endpoint doesn't contain an entry that is still in craft I need to delete that entry in craft. Dec 16, 2015 at 15:44
  • Out of interest, have you actually tried this setting? Thats exactly what this does. It deletes every entry in the section you're importing to, and only imports the entries in your feed. Make sense?
