This is not necessary but if you wish to make sure that only the ShopMania system has access to your script you can set a password on the file that would only allow access to the ShopMania Bot.
In this case you have to define the path to the export script in the Upload Settings section as it follows:
- HTTP password restricted: http://www.example.com/path_to_datafeed.ext?pass=password
Another option would be setting the user/password of the basic authentication type (at the script level or at the server level).
In this case the path to the export script must be defined in the Upload Settings section as it follows:
- HTTP basic authentication restriction: http://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/path_to_datafeed.ext
