On a large website, after using feedme to import some content it immediatelly triggers the "Updating element slugs and URIs" process that takes very long time to complete. Is there a way to postpone or temporary disable this task and do the import first?


You can try disabling Craft's queue temporarily by adding 'runQueueAutomatically' => false to general.php, then trigger the feed via the command line.

Without testing this might prevent the 'Updating element slugs and URIs' job, but in any case – doing it this way you should see better performance overall.

p.s. if you add --verbose to the end of the command you can see what it's doing.

  • Thanks. Just tried. Is still tirggers the updating elements slugs tasks.

  • That's a shame. Did you find it works faster? This job has to run, so doing it on the command line is still the best way.

  • The import itself was already fast. These additional tasks are killing everything.
