Sitemap sync

Sitemap sync allows conveniently update sitemap versions between Web Scraper Cloud and Web Scraper extension. Sitemap sync can be enabled by connecting the Cloud account to the extension. A single Cloud account can be synced with multiple extensions at a time.

Connecting Cloud to extension

Cloud account can be connected to extension by opening the extension in devtools and clicking on Sign in to Cloud in the top right corner.

Sign in to Cloud

This will open the Cloud's authentication page or extension authentication page if already authenticated. Click on Connect cloud with extension. After the success message has prompted, refresh the sitemap list in the extension. If the extension has been previously connected to Cloud but disconnected via extension, the Re-connect cloud with extension button will show instead.

Disconnecting Cloud from extension

The extension can be disconnected from Cloud by opening the extension in devtools and clicking on Logout in the top right corner.

Logout from Cloud

After disconnecting the extension from Cloud, all Cloud sitemaps that were not downloaded in extension will be discarded from the sitemap list.
