|Should this product be searched on the web? *Required ONLY for bulk imports This checkbox determines whether or not WSUS will look for the product online and report findings in the daily Internet Monitoring Reports. Using the product edit form you can skip this field. However, for bulk imports you are required to enter either 'True' or 'False'.
Is this a Key Product? Key products are a sub-set of all products that you may want to keep a close watch on. They can be reported on as an independent group. This check box determines whether or not this product will be included on any Key Product Reports. Key Product reports are custom monitoring reports deployed on request. Checking this box does not create the monitoring report, but identifies what products, if any, should be included once the custom report is created. Key products are selected in the Product Manager form only and not imported at this time.
Words to ignore when scraping (comma separated): This field allows you to fine-tune internet monitoring results preventing erroneous, invalid or unwanted listings (e.g. if you want to ignore all "refurbished" products). By ignoring similar products we can report on the specific product desired instead of capturing multiple variations as one reported item. There are symbols that should not be used as part of the ignore words such as: commas (,) semi-colons (;) and vertical bars (|) . These symbols are used to separate multiple ignore words. (Example Ignore Word String: Refurbished,Reconditioned,Opened Box,DEMO,Remanufactured,Refurb). This field may be field filled with up to 200 characters, including both spaces and text.
Product Description: This field gives you an opportunity to clearly describe the product. It is used on internal documents only. This field may be field filled with up to 50 characters, including both spaces and text.
Admin Notes: Used for internal 'bookkeeping' of product information.
Image File: As an option it is possible to associate an image to be displayed with the product records on any UMAP/MAP/MSRP document published. You simply need to enter the image file's name in this field when doing a bulk product data import/update. The actual image files would need to be FTP'd to a special 'dropbox' on the web server in advance of the product update. How to do this is covered in a separate article. If, however, you are editing or adding an individual product you can upload the image directly from the product edit form.
