    Hi @bondy,

    After the trigger, the “processing” script needs to run multiple times in order to fully process and import the data. That’s why we recommend running it every 2 minutes.

    If you’ve already set it to run every 2 minutes, it’s likely that the server is terminating the import or the cron jobs aren’t set up correctly. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can take:

    • Make sure your URLs are wrapped in quotes in your cron jobs, for example:
    • Go to All Import -> Settings and make sure the “Cron Processing Time Limit” is set to 120 or below.
    • Go to Manage Imports -> Import Settings and lower the records per iteration:

    After that, you can manually visit the cron URLs in your browser to see if they’re working and what’s returned.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Hey @bondy,

    I’m marking this as resolved since we haven’t heard back in a while. You can follow up in this thread if you still have questions.

    Anyone else, please open a new topic.
