QA Checklist

Before implementing the Version 5 (V5) schema, please ensure that the following are true of your V5 feeds:

  • Merchant last_update_timestamp changes when any merchant field is updated
  • Merchant IDs are unique across all V5 incrementals, that is, a merchant ID should refer to only one merchant
    • Multiple merchant entries referring to a single merchant ID will be considered updates to a single merchant
  • Review last_update_timestamp changes when any review field is updated
  • Review IDs are unique across all V5 incrementals, that is, a review ID should refer to only one review
    • Multiple review entries for a single review ID will be considered updates to a single review
    • A review ID should be attached to only a single merchant ID
  • Creation timestamps do not change
  • Update times (that is, last_update_timestamp) must be the same as or after create times (that is, create_timestamp)

Transition from Previous Schema Versions to Version 5 Schema

During the transition from V4 to the V5 schema, V4 help data resides in the section named Version 4 (Soon to be Deprecated).

As we will be cross-referencing your production feed to verify accuracy of your V5 feed, please ensure the following is true of your production feeds:

  • Merchant and review IDs are unique across all feeds, for example, Merchant ID 5 must refer to the same merchant in V4 and V5 feeds.
