The SimpleImport module offers a command line tool to import jobs from feeds. It’s usefull, if you plan to use YAWIK as a jobportal and if you would like to import jobs from customers.

Simple import operations
  console simpleimport import [--limit]                                                                           Executes a data import for all
                                                                                                                  registered crawlers
  console simpleimport add-crawler --name --organization= --feed-uri [--runDelay] [--type] [--jobInitialState]    Adds a new import crawler

  --limit=INT                 Number of crawlers to check per run. Default 3. 0 means no limit
  --name=STRING               The name of a crawler
  --organization==STRING      The ID of an organization
  --feed-uri=STRING           The URI pointing to a data to import
  --runDelay=INT              The number of minutes the next import run will be proceeded again
  --type=STRING               The type of an import (e.g. job)
  --jobInitialState=STRING    The initial state of an imported job

Feeds have to be formatted as defined in the scrapy docs.

Example: Add a feed to a an organization

root@yawik:/var/www/YAWIK# ./bin/console simpleimport add-crawler --name=example-crawler \
                                                                  --organization=59e4b53e7bb2b553412f9be9 \
A new crawler with the ID "59e4b5a87bb2b567468b4567" has been successfully added.

This command created a crawler in the mongo collection simpleimport.crawler and returns the ObjectId.

> db.simpleimport.crawler.find({"_id":ObjectId("59e4b5a87bb2b567468b4567")}).pretty();
        "_id" : ObjectId("59e4b5a87bb2b567468b4567"),
        "name" : "example-crawler",
        "organization" : ObjectId("59e4b53e7bb2b553412f9be9"),
        "type" : "job",
        "feedUri" : "",
        "runDelay" : NumberLong(1440),
        "dateLastRun" : {
                "date" : ISODate("1970-01-01T00:00:00Z"),
                "tz" : "+00:00"
        "options" : {
                "initialState" : "active",
                "_doctrine_class_name" : "SimpleImport\\Entity\\JobOptions"


if you execute the command twice, the crawler will be added twice. If you want to remove a crawler, you have to do so on the mongo cli.
